Sarah Jessica Parker,
In Huntingburg, the armored truck with three million dollars driven by Tom and his Uncle Charlie gets stuck in the flooding and realizes that the town has been evacuated since the dam does not have capacity to hold the storm. While waiting for the National Guard, they are attacked by Jim and his gang formed by Kenny, Mr. Mehlor and Ray and the clumsy Kenny kills Charlie. Tom flees with the bags of money and hides them in the cemetery. Then he is hunted down by Jim and his gang and he hides in a church. Out of the blue, he is knocked out and awakes locked in a cell. Soon he learns that the restorer Karen believed he was a looter and hit him. Sheriff Mike Collins and Deputy Wayne Bryce go to investigate Tom' story while Officer Phil takes Karen out of the town by boat. However she escapes with the boat and goes to the church. Meanwhile Tom is trapped in the cell full of water and Karen rescues him. He decides to return to the armored truck to retrieve a shotgun but he is captured by Jim...Written by

During gunfights between Jim, Tom and the police, Jim and Tom have one revolver and one semi-automatic handgun between the two of them. Yet, they seem to have an endless supply of bullets, with no apparent access to extra bullets. In fact, Tom retrieves his gun from one of the dead robbers, but not the bullets. Also, we never see either Jim or Tom reloading their guns from their supposed endless supply of bullets. See more »
What did you hit me with, anyway?
It was a crucifix. (Everyone looks at her) What? It was all I could find.
Great, I'm gonna have people from all around the world come to see the impression of Jesus on my forehead.

The Paramount mountain is seen in much worse weather than normal; the camera pans down from the logo to scenes of flooding. See more »
Fast, exciting action flick with possibly too much shooting (and everyone a bad shot!)
Christian Slater plays an armored truck guard who has to deal with thieves, the crooked police, a fierce Indiana rainfall, and a flooded town while trying to protect three million dollars in the company vehicle. Well-done action flick isn't epic-scale, but does have many suspenseful close-calls and colorful characters, plus good performances by Slater, Morgan Freeman, Minnie Driver, and Richard Dysart and Betty White as an elderly couple who didn't evacuate when they were supposed to. Randy Quaid overplays heinously as a trigger happy sheriff, and the continual shootouts in the final third get repetitive, but this scenario (an entire town slowly being submerged) is exceptionally well-captured and the filmmakers didn't forget to add some good humor into the mix. **1/2 from ****
