    Prime Cut
    Michael Ritchie, better known for his gentle satires of American social institutions, enters Don Siegel territory in the unusual crime thriller Prime Cut. Lee Marvin is surly collection agent Nick Devlin, who is hired by Chicago racketeer Jake (Eddie Egan) to collect an overdue payment from Kansas cattle baron Mary Ann (yes, Mary Ann!) (Gene Hackman). When Devlin travels west to get Jake's money from Mary Ann, he finds the cattle king mixed up in complex drug deals and pimping wild women -- two of which are Poppy and Violet (Sissy Spacek and Janit Baldwin -- both in their film debuts). ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

      Medium Well Movie.


      A movie like this would be difficult to duplicate for its release from the 1970's. A blend of crime drama, cornball humor, and Western shoot-ups; Lee Marvin's Nick is a mob enforcer from Chicago set to have Hackman's redneck thug in Missouri pay the outfit 50K or die. Rescuing a young girl (Spacek) from human trafficking, the movie plays on with shoot-ups and chatter that seem more silly than serious. The movie is good for fans of the actors but feels like just about any crime-action film.
