An El Paso private investigator, Johnny Cash, encouraged by Gloria, his receptionist, takes a charity case investigating the disappearance of a young woman in Juarez, Mexico. Hundreds of girls and young women have disappeared in the area after coming to work at maquiladoras - small factories; some corpses are found with missing body parts. Johnny and Gloria interview the missing woman's boss, look for her boyfriend, and talk to a co-worker. The cops are corrupt, so they are on their own. All leads take them to an isolated clinic. Will they be in time to find and save the missing woman? Written by
Don't let the DVD cover fool you into renting this.
This movie (if you can call it that), was unbelievably BAD!!! and not bad in a good way either. Not even like cult movie bad. I mean, if this movie was up against say...SHOWGIRLS; Elizabeth Berkeley would have an Oscar for best actress by now. The writing was bad, the direction was worse and the acting was appalling; all three of the titles where subsequently lead by James Cahill. He plays a P.I. in this film and he really must think highly of himself because we're suppose to believe that this 5'4" scrawny guy is a real BAD-ASS!!! What a joke, HE SPEAKS WITH A LISP, how bad-ass is that?. And even though the film is suppose to take place in Mexico, it was clearly made in So. California's High Desert. I've never in my life been to Mexico where the residents speak such perfect accent-less English, with American Slang too!!! Even when a character is asked if they speak English, they'd say "A little bit" and then brake out into a full perfect English monologue. The only one in this devastating loss of film with any acting ability and presence was Vivian Gray. The rest of the "actresses" all looked like they were all cast from the same Taco Bell. But hey, if you wanna rent it, it's your call, I've already lost my 5 bucks. Just don't say I didn't warn you.
