Suspense, Mystery, Sex, and Violence, what more can you ask for?
14 July 2002 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

This is a favorite movie of my wife and I. It stands up to our toughest test, i.e., it stands up to repeated viewing and seems better each time we watch it. Some object to the sex and violence but `get a life' it's just a movie,(as Lt. Hector Martinez (Ruben Blades)) would say `you Daffodils!'
