Underrated Movie #191 ~ The Underneath

The Underneath

Buy from Amazon.com

In this remake of the film-noir classic Criss Cross, scalawag Michael Chambers (Peter Gallagher) returns home for his mother’s nuptials after running out on his gambling debts. Before long, he’s hatching a robbery scheme and wooing his ex-wife, Rachel (Alison Elliott) — a move that infuriates her new gangster hubby (William Fichtner). Steven Soderbergh directed this stylish and engrossing film co-starring Joe Don Baker and Elisabeth Shue. (Netflix) My Rating: 3.5 out of 5. Internet Movie Database

About Underrated Movies
My name is Eric and I created this blog for the simple reason that I love to find hidden gems that go under the radar. So you can get an idea of my tastes, my favorite all-time movies include (among many others) Aliens (plural), Braveheart, The Shawshank Redemption, Field of Dreams, Misery, Mississippi Burning, The Untouchables, Die Hard, and Superman: The Movie. I have a massive list of over 250 underrated, under-appreciated, and/or overlooked movies, and I am always on the lookout for more. I will occasionally update this blog with a new selection. Each entry has links to the Internet Movie Database, a top critic’s review of the movie, Netflix, a link to the trailer, and a link to purchase and/or watch the movie instantly on Amazon. I would earn a small commission if you buy on Amazon after clicking my link, so consider making a purchase if you enjoy this blog.
