Storyline

Gene Reardon (Hauer) is a twice-divorced police detective who lives with his daughter. When a well-heeled local man is kidnapped, the FBI is called in, which introduces Longsworth (played by Paulina Porizkova). Longsworth happens to have been Reardon's first wife. Reardon's police reputation stinks because he botched a high-profile kidnapping case many years ago, which resulted in a baby who was never found. When ransom demands are finally heard, Reardon must try to solve the case without repeating his mistakes. Written by veloc <velo_00@yahoo.com>

I was completely captivated by this movie. For what in year's gone by would have constituted a B movie or secondary feature, this film was excellent down the line. The story is crisp, and without slow spots. The acting is uniformly excellent. And to look at Paulina Porizkova is heavenly. Rutger Hauer is always good, and all acting is under control. The children in this are terrific, especially a beautiful performance by Hauer,s daughter. The directing is superlative; even the dog wasn't obviously looking at his handler off-screen. The pace, photography, sets, were of the highest order. You can watch this one over and over and still enjoy it. Bravo.
