The Underneath (1995)

More noir, this time from SEX, LIES, AND VIDEOTAPE auteur Steven  
Soderbergh.  Peter Gallagher stars as a reformed gambler, back in town  
after a move to Splitsville.  He's working a new job, as an armored car  
driver, but he wants his old flame back.  Too bad she's now married to  
the mob.   
THE UNDERNEATH starts with enough intrigue, but it doesn't go anywhere.  
The set-up takes too long, and the payoff is chump change.  As for  
Gallagher, the best that can be said about *his* performance is that, 
in uniform, he looks quite a bit like Barney Fife.  That's a section 12  
offense, Mister!  

Based on CRISS CROSS (1948). 
Grade: C-
