Academy Award-winning superstar Mel Gibson (Maverick, Lethal Weapon series), Kurt Russell (Tombstone, Tango and Cash) and Academy Award-nominee Michelle Pfeiffer (Dangerous Minds, Batman Returns) star in this steamy, romantic thriller which explores the relationship between two longtime friends—one a drug dealer looking for a way out, and the other, a cop assigned to trap his friend. Caught between them—and powerfully drawn to both—is the beautiful Michelle Pfeiffer. Written and directed by Academy Award-winner Robert Towne (The Firm, Chinatown) and co-starring Golden Globe-winner Raul Julia (Addams Family Values, Kiss of the Spider Woman), this is "a hot and intoxicating, sexy sizzler with three of the most exciting performers on screen at any one time," says WWOR-TV. At the Movies calls it "a sexy, tough, two-fisted thriller."
