Aussie #1 delivers a briefcase of money to Aussie #2. The Aussies trade briefcases, cocaine for money. When #1 realizes the drugs are fake, he spins the car around and heads for #2. Had be bothered to lift a single bag, he would have seen the bomb hidden under the drugs and been able to chuck it out of the convertible. However, he does not and dies in a huge explosion which not only destroys the car but completely stops its forward inertia — gee, almost like they blew up a stationary car. But it is very well done and the movie is off to a great start.
A beautiful blonde tears out in her car and sees a man (Aussie #3) with car trouble on the side of the road. She blows by him kicking up sand and grit into his face. As beautiful women do.
Aussie #2, swerving to the wrong side of the road tries to avoid the oncoming Blondie and runs off the road executing a few rolls . Aussie #3 — whose car is running again, I guess — stops to check on Blondie and Aussie #2. For crying out loud, I hope these people get names soon.
Aussie #3 finds Aussie #2 is dead and has with him a briefcase full of money; fortunately for Aussie #3, not American dollars.
Aussie #3 alerts the police and foolishly hands over the cash. The sheriff offers Aussie #3 a room at his house, drives him there, and his wife is the blonde. I can tell at IMDb that she is Jina. She calls her husband — the sheriff — Frank, so Aussie #2 must be Colin.
A Nazi-ish looking guy shows up on the scene and the bodies start stacking up as he looks for the missing cash. Naturally, being a noir-ish story, there are twists, the cash moves around, backs are stabbed, people left for dead come back to life, and through it all there is a local battle of the marching bands that periodically takes over the streets in the small town.
- Sheriff Frank was the lead human in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
- OK, it’s the name of the town, but worst hotel name ever: Neverest Hotel.
