Michael "Jay" Cochran has just left the Navy after 12 years. He's not quite sure what he's going to do, except that he knows he wants a holiday. He decides to visit Tiburon Mendez, a powerful but shady Mexican businessman who he once flew to Alaska for a hunting trip. Arriving at the Mendez mansion in Mexico, he is immediately surprised by the beauty and youth of Mendez' wife Miryea. Their attraction to each other is undeniable, but Cochran is aware that Mendez is a powerful, vindictive, and very possessive man who does not tolerate betrayal. Written by

Miryea asks Jay how he knows Spanish, Jay responds that he was stationed in Madrid for three years. Naval Aviators are required to make so many hours of flying time per month to retain their wings, so the nearest Naval Base would be at Rota, Spain. Rota is far from Madrid and due South of Lisbon, Portugal. See more »
An Intense, and surprisingly emotional action film
When I first saw this film in the theaters I was 16,I went expecting a run of the mill thriller, but by the time this film was over,I was not only pleasantly surprised, but also surprisingly moved.In my life I'v seen hundreds of movies of all kinds and I have to say that this is the only movie I have seen in a theater where couples who had gone out on your standard Friday night movie outing began watching this film sitting side by side and ended it caressing and weeping in each others arms. At this time I was probably the youngest person in the theater and alone,sitting near the back of the theater, I was able to glance around the theater through out the film and watch young couples come to life emotionally towards one another. By the ending of this movie women were actually crying. I have never seen any film regardless of content affect people in this way. Bravo Tony Scott and Kevin Costner.
