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. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

Goofs

In the beginning scenes of Jay flying his last mission, his backseat officer, who is also his good friend, continually refers to him as "sir." In the real Navy, fighter crews of roughly equal rank are a close-knit group, and would rarely use the formal word "sir." Instead, they would use first names or nicknames. This is especially true when the two aviators are close pals, as Jay and his backseater are. See more »

some guys have all the luck...
14 July 2003 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

kevin costner plays a retired 'gung ho' u.s. air pilot who accepts an invitation from his old pal 'tibby' (quinn) to visit him in mexico where...yes! you've guessed it; kevin starts taking a fancy to his young mrs. whose young enough to be his daughter. "i should have married the mother" quips quinn and indeed i'm sure everybody else would agree in unison as it's not long till costners putting some weight on the lady concerned whilst quinns performing a striptease! where else but in the movies would you be able to drive a jeep while trying to make love at the same time or visiting the restroom at your local cantina only to leave with a sore throat? the late, much missed jack nitzsche provides a wonderful soundtrack and the whole movies beautifully shot by tony ('top gun') scott as well as expertly co-written by a superb writer/poet named jim harrison who also penned 'the legend of the falls' novella. mightily undervalued and well worth a look.
