Critics reviews

Palmetto’s ace in the hole is Harrelson, still a hot commodity in the wake of The People Vs. Larry Flynt. Harrelson nails the swaggering charisma and sweaty-palmed desperation of his fall-guy protagonist—a one-time man of principle whose turn to crime stems as much from disillusionment as from pure greed. “If you can’t beat the crooks, join them,” the film cynically suggests. That’s a vintage noir philosophy if ever there was one.
