A dopey, almost poignantly bad actioner about two legends-in-their-own-minds, who bungle their way through a bank robbery on behalf of a friend, stands out only for big stars Mickey Rourke and Don Johnson.

Set in the wild west of Burbank, Calif, in 1996, when gasoline has gone up to $3.50 a gallon and people are getting high on something called Crystal Drano – er, Crystal Dream – Harley has two rebellious drifters (Rourke and Johnson) blowing into town to check on an old friend who’s in trouble because a bank wants to foreclose on his business, their old hangout, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Bar & Grill. The big-hearted boys go into action to rob the bank, but their stunt eventually winds up getting all their buddies killed.

Pic scores mainly in the second unit and stunt department, with hotly staged bike chases and an abundance of breaking glass, falling bodies and shoot-outs, and the production design is an asset.
