The Bag Man (2014)
John Cusack and Robert De Niro, two of my favourite actors so i just had to watch this. its quite interesting and has three of my favourite elements in a movie, everything happens in one night, a twist and a happy ending. the movie is about de niro hiring cusack to carry a bag and meet him in a room 13 at a motel in the middle of nowhere with one condition, never look in the bag. when he reaches there he meets the motel owner and later a prostitute, a midget and a one-eyed black guy, and then things get interesting. apparently everyone including the town sheriff and his officers are all after the same bag. at the same time the prostitute is seeking refuge from her pimp with cusack. the action is not bad and there's some suspense. most of the time you'll be wondering what's the next thing that will go against him, so many hurdles to get over in one night. ultimately he succeeds and then the contents of the bag is revealed, and then comes the twist.
