Expertly helmed by Russell Mulcahy is an engrossing and star-studded crime caper full of ingenious crosses and double-crosses. Academy award winner Kim Basinger stars as Karen McCoy, a burglar fresh out of a six-year stint in jail. Intending to stay on the straight and narrow, things take a different turn when a big-time Atlanta crime boss kidnaps McCoy's young son and forces her to pull one last elaborate heist. Featuring a meticulously constructed heist sequence and a feisty, confident heroine, The Real McCoy also stars Val Kilmer as Karen' McCoy's partner in crime and Terence Stamp as her devious ex-boss.
Bland bank robbing action

Pleasant enough. The bank robbing scene itself is not nearly as well directed as it could have been and is almost a disappointment. Basinger pouts and wiggles her way through an otherwise very average Hollywood tick box plot (boy meets girl, both are good guys, they meet some bad guys, then happy ending).
