The evocative Algiers street exterior was created by production designer Patrizia von Brandenstein on the studio back-lot whose meticulously detailed work completely disguises the fact that this road had earlier represented the main drag of New York's Chinatown in Michael Cimino's Year of the Dragon (1985). Von Brandenstein said: "The neon here is knocked-off, not true orange, because this place has been around a long time . . . sin is old". The Algiers set provides a powerful visual background for the highly charged finale of the film: Eddie Jillette' (Richard Gere)'s confrontation with Losado, which will determine the fates of the two men and Michel Duval (Kim Basinger)'s as well.

Action, adventure, beautiful scenery and women, plus explosions. A real Man's Movie.
Kim Basinger is young and gorgeous. Richard Gere is, well Richard Gere. He's dapper, sexy semi-nude and the good guy. What else is new? He's a Chicago cop who's partner gets murdered and he thinks Basinger, can lead him to the killer. Beautiful scenes of Louisiana bayou and attention-grabbing chase scenes make this an enjoyable movie for all. And don't forget the love scenes for the women and the fighting and torching of New Orleans for the men. A fun couple of hours.
