Anyone seen Dead Presidents? I noticed the front of the DVD case has a 1911 on it. Just curious if this movie has any good shootouts or gun play in it? If so, is it worth buying the DVD?

Yeah, I saw the reviews. They didn't mention much about the guns (if any) or shootouts (if any) in the movie. They mentioned "Heat" so that made me curious as to how this movie compares to Heat as far as any shooting goes.....

The packaging of this movie is very misleading. The first 75% of this movie takes place in Vietnam. The action is marginal but is extremely graphic (a soldier keeps a decapitated head for good luck). The robbery doesn't take place until the very end of the movie.

There are good performances throughout, but if you're looking for a pure action movie, look elsewhere. It's mostly a character study.

I watched that movie back in high school. From what I remember it was a pretty good flick, though not a straight out action movie.

For more reviews, check the Internet Movie Database: http://www.imdb.com

I thought keeping a severed head for good luck was ok as long as it wasn't your own.
