Added DiffLines:

* DirtyCoward: [[spoiler:Kane talks a big game with the gun, but once the Turners get the gun away from him, he becomes this.]]

Added DiffLines:

* EqualOpportunityEvil: Bizarrely enough, yes. For as much as a racist psychopath as he is, Kane apparently has no problem teaming up with two fellow criminals who are Asian and Latino.

Hate-filled redneck convinct Jessie Lee Kane (William Sanderson of ''Film/BladeRunner'' fame), accompanied by Hispanic convict Chino (Daniel Faraldo) and Chinese convict Ling (Peter Yoshida) escape from the prison-truck transporting them, steal a car from a pimp and skip the country on the road to Canada.
