Action filmmaker Walter Hill ("The Long Riders;" "48 Hrs.") and writers Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis ("Back to the Future") serve up a buried treasure fable with East St. Louis the unlikely setting. After an old map leads two firemen (Bill Paxton, William Sadler) to a cache of gold hidden in an abandoned factory, the duo must outmaneuver a gang of hoodlums who think the pair are cops. Rappers-turned-actors Ice-T and Ice Cube make early screen appearances as the two most menacing thugs. "Plenty of tightly wound tension" - "Deseret News."
