No way should this have been four hours long!

Just tell the story, trim the extraneous characters, and get on with it, guys!

Nevertheless, there's some good buddy-cop work here from Ken Olin and Gary Grubbs, and a decent performance from Cybil Shepherd, still quite stunning at age 43.

I'm glad they added an epilogue to detract from the "Body Heat"-type conclusion. According to what I could gather from the Internet, the Faith character was eventually extradited and is serving out a life term. The killer was executed years ago. (And about that murder scene, why are we allowed to see the guy's face? Er, a little suspense, please?)

I often look up backstories on Wikipedia and was intrigued to learn that Olin, two years my senior, majored in English at Penn State, just like I did. Don't remember the handsome devil in any of my classes, though!
