I quite like this movie, as it's a good detective yarn and Kathleen Turner gives her usual professional performance - in this case as tough female private-eye, V.I.Warshawski. For some odd reason the film reminds me of "The Maltese Falcon"; but anyway it holds one's interest. There's plenty of action, and what does V.I. need in order to hire her? "Money, and a Just Cause". Score: 7 out of 10.
