Angela, the beautiful Mexican mistress of a NY mobster, asks virginal Father Michael for protection after Zena, the mobster's wife, kills her cheating husband. Michael becomes torn between his vows, Angela and his sister - Zena.
The first film that indicated the downward path Tom Berenger's films were taking. He's been in a lot of TV movies, and they're not all bad, in fact some are excellent (Rough Riders, In the Company of Spies, Johnson County War to name a few) but some are real stinkers like this dud. It's completely unoriginal with practically a see-through "plot" and the intended film-noir feel misses all together.
Nancy Travis, who looked like she was going to have some sort of acting career (quite excellent in 1990's Internal Affairs) gives a rather good performance but in the end she doesn't have all that much to do and can't salvage anything of value. The excellent Tom Berenger looks completely lost here, whether he wasn't all that interested in the project (who could blame him?) or simply was hitting a career low here, is anyone's guess. He's way too good for such a degrading and spineless role. I was always waiting for his character to pull off something unexpected but...nothing. Total bore.
