Ray 'Boom Boom' Mancini,
Powers Booth stars as a good but vulnerable cop who is sucked into the high-risk life of a veteran cat burglar (Jennifer Beals); soon he is participating (and contributing to) her lifestyle of larceny...and grand larceny.
Certainly interesting, with top-grade performances by the two leads...but this strictly generic film noir offers little novelty.
Strongest asset is the chemistry between Booth and Beals, their intimate scenes (Beals in the buff is a WOW!) make this barely-released, little-seen film worth a look if you can get your paws on a copy.
**1/2 out of ****.
