One False Move (1992)


By Scott Goldfine

A small-town police chief (Bill Paxton) faces the challenge of his life when three desperados show up in this crime drama. The fugitives (two men and a woman) are cold-blooded killers who mercilessly slaughter many victims during a trek from L.A. to Arkansas.

The chief is torn when it turns out he know the woman. A modest success, this gritty film has some interesting observations on race and human nature. Directed by Carl Franklin an also starring Billy Bob Thornton. Rated R.
