I Died a Thousand Times is essentially a remake of the 1941 crime-drama classic High Sierra. Jack Palance steps into the old Humphrey Bogart role as Roy "Mad Dog" Earle, the ageing bank robber who intends to pull off one last heist before retiring. Sprung from prison by likeable crime boss Big Mac (Lon Chaney Jr.), Earle is commissioned to mastermind the robbery of a resort hotel. His partners in crime include the hotheaded, immature Babe (Lee Marvin) and Red (Earl Holliman), as well as "inside man" Mendoza (Perry Lopez). Also along for the ride is Marie (Shelley Winters), a dance-hall girl whom Babe has picked up. Marie falls in love with Earle, but he has eyes only for Velma (Lori Nelson), the club-footed daughter of a farmer (Ralph Moody) whom Earle had earlier befriended. While the 1955 film cannot match the excellence of its 1941 role model, I Died a Thousand Times works quite well on its own terms.

Anyways it was one the worst films ever made, predictable, dodgy acting and downgraded special effects which were laughable. Christina Ricci was totally wasted. Though the two knitting lady who stabbed Basinger's friend in the eye was hilarious.

David S (au) wrote: This Woody Allen spoof-styled film is mildly funny, but far better than spoof fare we get nowadays. Allen's portrayal of a dimwitted thief fits his real life persona well; nobody can make fun of themselves like Woody Allen can. You won't bust up laughing, but this lighthearted flick is decent enough to be enjoyable throughout.

Guimo P (es) wrote: 6 Ways to Die has a clever way of storytelling but nothing much of substance to its story. It has straightforward message and action sequences. However, its ending is the biggest decision-maker. You will intensely love or hate the film after its mind-blowing conclusion.
