Maverick Chicago cop Eddie Jillette poses as a hit man to meet with someone in from New Orleans looking to have a job done. The result is that both the guy and Jillette's partner wind up very dead, while a stunning blonde in on the setup disappears. He heads south to settle the score and soon finds himself being hunted, with the girl in tow and the local police anything but happy. New Orleans may never be the same again. Written by

The Louisiana leg of shooting also included scenes set in the Vieux Carre Police Station. Production designer Patrizia von Brandenstein said: "We converted a tourist-information-society building with wonderful murals of old New Orleans into our police station. The funny thing was that the building was due to be converted into a real police station and the department asked to keep some of our counters and other fixtures". See more »
When Eddie and Michel are taking a shower in the shack, there's big smudge of dirt on Michel's face whenever the camera is close to her face. When the camera cuts wider to show Eddie as well, suddenly the smudge disappears. Then it reappears again. See more »
This is not one of my top 10 films of all times, but it is a solid genre piece with some interesting variations and local color.
After Katrina, a film about New Orleans has a special interest that adds a certain sauce.
If there are any weaknesses, some of Bassinger's line deliveries are a bit weak. Otherwise, superb acting all around. I have always thought Gere was something of a lightweight, but very solid work here.
Unlike many films, they get the weapons handling VERY right.
I am a bit confused as to why this film has been rated so low on average. I have the video, and watch it about once a year.
