The true story of John Hawkins, a notoriously elusive criminal profiled on John Walsh's television show 'Americas's Most Wanted'. Hawkin was a sociopathic con man and murderer, who used sex in his scams and had the charm and good looks to do so. After a $1 million insurance settlement on a business partner's death, he disappeared, leading the California detective who pursued him on a wild chase all over the world. Written by

If there will be one role that Antonio Sabato, Jr. will be forever identified with it will be that of John Hawkins, bisexual conman and conspirator in a scam that involved murder. If Looks Could Kill is one of the films that shows how America's Most Wanted helped capture this illusive criminal with John Walsh himself making an appearance.
Sabato's portrayal of Hawkins with his infinite charm and looks casting a spell on men and women has to be one of the sexiest male performances on record, big screen or small. That scene in the airplane restroom with a female conquest will send most in the audience seeking a cold shower or some other kind of relief.
Hawkins was the third man involved in a con that had his business and current sexual partner Brad Dourif impersonating a man that he and third member of the plot Maury Chaykin killed. Chaykin killed some innocent they selected after verifying he had no family. Then with some plastic surgery Dourif took the dead man's place while the dead man was identified as Dourif. A hefty insurance policy was paid before questions were asked.
Dourif and Chaykin are caught, but Sabato eludes police and charms a lot men and women into helping him get away and live high on the hog in Europe. Detective David Keith never gives up and coverage on America's Most Wanted, a show that should never have been canceled helps in the hunt.
It's a good film and at least one scene with Sabato, the one I mentioned ventures ever so lightly into soft core porn. But Sabato will never have a better role and the film is the story of a good and successful manhunt for one elusive man.
