Storyline

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.

Trivia

The sex scenes between Kevin Costner and Madeleine Stowe were not rehearsed or choreographed in any way before shooting. Tony Scott simply set up three cameras and allowed the actors to find their way into the scenes. Everything seen during the sex scenes was improvised by the actors themselves. When Costner viewed Scott's director's cut of the movie in 2007 he said of these scenes, 'Boy, we really got into it didn't we'? See more »

Goofs

After Jay finds the Texan lying in the seat of the car (with blood splats from coughing on his white, crumpled shirt), the next scene shows Jay driving down the road and the Texan sitting on the passenger side with the same shirt, freshly starched and stain free at this point. See more »

Highly underrated
12 March 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

I'd avoided this film for years, despite being a huge Costner fan, because people had described it as nearly unwatchable. On the advice of someone on the internet, I gave it a shot, and what a surprise! Although it'll never be one of my favorite films, it's certainly worthwhile, a highly engrossing (albeit graphically gory) trip through a wide and shifting range of emotions. Quinn gives his best performance since "Zorba," and Costner and Stowe are extremely good. The photography is extraordinary, and Mexican music has seldom been used so effectively. I'd recommend it to anyone with a strong stomach. The love scenes, by the way, are romantic AND sexy, a rare combination.
