TRESPASS (1992) - Walter Hill


The year 1992 gave us two films filled to the brim with machismo concerning a group of mismatched criminals stuck in an abandoned warehouse and arguing over a plan gone wrong. One redefined the heist movie/action genre, became an instant cult classic and launched a young director's career. The other trafficked heavily in shopworn genre conventions, tried desperately to jazz it up with then new cell phones, lame gangsta rap posturing, forced Rodney King allusions and succeeded in nothing but becoming a big fat blemish on an older director's otherwise respectable career.

Guess which one is Reservoir Dogs. Guess which one is Trespass.
