Strong themes and violence
|Actors:||Lee Marvin, Gene Hackman, Gregory Walcott, Sissy Spacek|
Lee Martin and Gene Hackman square off in one of the most explosive screen confrontations ever. Marvin is an underworld enforcer sent to Kansas City to collect money from Hackman, a mysterious mobster who has no intention of paying up. A meat-packing plant front for Hackman's real business dealings: drugs and prostitution. Before it ends, hoods will be ground into sausages and beautiful women will be sold like cattle. Michael Ritchie's breakneck direction propels the action along with the speed of bullets. From a shoot out at a country fair to the final cataclysmic showdown, Prime Cut is prime excitement.
