They did it for money. For power. And for fun. Two ruthless drug dealers commit a brutal mass murder in Los Angeles and are forced to flee the state. And when Fantasia, their beautiful accomplice, begs to go home to Arkansas, she unwittingly leads them into the eye of the hurricane.
Waiting for them in Arkansas is an unlikely arsenal of law enforcers that includes two cynical L.A. cops and one eager small-town chief of police. Chief Dale “Hurricane” Dixon has waited all his life for a major bust, and he’s ready to meet these big-city killers with his own brand of small-town justice. But when Fantasia arrives ahead of the gunmen, she brings with her a shattering secret from Hurricane’s own past. All it takes to bring him down now is one woman…one bullet… or ONE FALSE MOVE.Named the best movie of 1992 by Gene Siskel, One False Move stars Bill Paxton, Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Metzler, and Cynda Williams. It was directed by Carl Franklin, from a script by Tom Epperson and Billy Bob Thornton.
