Ultimate Movie About Greed
8 April 1999 | by ZanatosSee all my reviews

"The Killing Grounds" has to be one of the few movies where you will dislike every single character. Fortunately, unlike some movies...like the awful "Skin Deep," you aren't supposed to like them.

A group of criminals steal a huge load of gold bars and plan on flying it over the US-Mexican border. Two of them are undercover cops, and they plan on cheating the others by keeping the gold after one of them flies it over the border. The plane crashes in the woods of the American Southwest, killing open of the cops and the plane's pilot.

Overall, the beginning of "The Killing Grounds" could have been better, and that could have made it into an exceptional movie instead of a mediocre one. Still, it wouldn't be a waste of your time to see this movie, since there are so many other movies like it out there that are really bad. Zanatos' score: ### out of ##### (or a 6 on this site's scale). Check it out.
