Red Rock West | Full Movie | Movies Anywhere
The quirkiest thriller since Blood Simple, "Red Rock West" stars Nicolas Cage, Dennis Hopper and LaraFlynn Boyle in an offbeat mystery about an average guy who is mistaken for a professional hit-man. Dead tired and flat broke after driving 1,200 miles, Michael, an unemployed Texan (Cage), walks into a tavern in tiny "Red Rock West," Wyoming, and is immediately offered a job. There's just one problem: the owner thinks Micheal is a hit-man, and the "job" is murdering the owner's wife (Boyle). Just when Mike decides to take the money and run, the real hit-man (Hopper, sporting a homicidal Texas twang) arrives, ready to do the job right. Full of playful twists and sexy turns, "Red Rock West" is a perfectly plotted game of cat-and-mouse that will keep you guessing until the final, shocking shot.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Red Rock West is a hidden neo-noir gem with some delightful cracks in its surface -- and an opportunity to see Lara Flynn Boyle, Nicolas Cage, Dennis Hopper, and J.T. Walsh go toe-to-toe in all their early '90s glory.
A wry thriller with a keen edge.
