Picks and Pans Review: Black Ice
A pony-tailed Michael Nouri plays a happy-go-lucky Detroit cab driver who has seen it all in his rear-view mirror. Then a Belgian beauty (Joanna Pacula) offers him a sizable sum to drive her to Seattle. She's being hotly pursued by a guy (Michael Ironside) who has a supply of bullets and a totally bogus law-enforcement badge for all occasions.
Soon Nouri and Pacula are cruising along, sharing aspects of their complicated souls with each other, making this movie like a Hairy Chapin song with guns. After a nice set-up, the film rockets around sloppily before ending, as do so main traveling salesmen and wayward FBI agents, in Billings, Mont.
