The Baldwin/Basinger remake of ' The Getaway ' is a well put together, well acted, entertaining movie. This was not well received upon release, and I can't see why. Baldwin smolders on screen, and his real life chemistry with Basinger ( well, until they divorced ) carries over to the movie. The relationship of their married characters is passionate, and volatile. An excellent scene is when Doc, who can't control his anger any longer after finding out that Carol had slept with bad-guy Benyon ( James Woods ) in a deal for Doc's prison release, stops their car on the side of the road, and they have an intense argument. Great scene. Not to be overlooked is the performance of Michael Madsen as Rudy. He could be Vic Vega's ( from Reservoir Dogs ) dopier cousin. He is a bad guy, yet his scenes with Jennifer Tilly are at times very funny..you'll laugh at what a jerk he can be. The movie has some good action and drama in it, especially the scene when Doc, at the train depot, chases down the small-time thief who has made off with Doc and Carol's bag full of stolen cash. The finale is an excellent shoot-out at a seedy old hotel in El Paso, and it definitely does not disappoint. Much action and tension. The final scene includes the late Richard Farnsworth, and it is touching to see now that he is no longer alive. An excellent Richard Marx song ' Now and Forever ' runs over the end credits, and it works perfectly. Very nice. This is a movie I've seen many times, and always enjoyed. It's executed well, with nice cinematography. Don't believe some of the bad reviews, and judge for yourself. I believe the 1994 version of ' The Getaway ' is an overlooked little gem.
