Hardened criminal Maggie Hayward's consistent violence, even in police custody, ends in the execution chamber. However, top-secret US government agent 'Bob' arranges a staged death, so Maggie can be elaborately trained as phantom killer and subdued into obedience. She gets a new cover identity as saleswoman Claudia Anne Doran. She also gets a wonderful house-mate, building super J.P., a broad-minded, gentle photographer. The two fall in love, and that complicates hit jobs. His good influence extends to breeding in her a conscience that places love over business, unlike Bob's agency. Written by
This film isn't perfect-I'm the first to admit this. There are so many things that don't make sense. However, I candidly admit that I love this film. Why? Well, it's slickly produced, well shot, juicy, colorful and I can't help but love Bridget Fonda's performance. She just played this part perfectly. Ann Bancroft played her part well too. In fact, all the actors did a good job here. I can't imagine anyone else in those parts. Yes, some of it is unbelievable and hard to swallow but if you just want something entertaining to watch this is good. If you want everything here to make sense or want explanations for every single detail then you will probably be disappointed. So, just watch it and enjoy it for what it is. I can think of MUCH much worse.
