Trivia

In the trailer Ashland (Jeff Corey) can be heard saying offscreen to Bill Capa (Bruce Willis), "You've fallen into a trap". Likely in an attempt to add a layer of intrigue. See more »

In the first car chase, as the red car slams into the rear fender of Capa's car we see, in close-up, the front end of the red car smashed in. In the next wide shot of both cars, the front is completely intact, with no damage visible. See more »

User Reviews

A good mystery movie with an unexpected final
9 July 1999 | by ParaGraphSee all my reviews

Why everyone is SO mad about this movie? It's not THAT BAD. Come on! This is a well-directed and acted feature. Bruce Willis is wonderful as Doctor Capa, and I think it is one of his best performances. He just proved here that he can act normal characters, and not only Die-Hard macho idiots. Jane March is very hot as Rose and the mystery of her apperances and disappearances sticks the spectator to the screen. Love and murder scenes do a very good job too, Dominic Frontiere's music is charming and thrilling and Dietrich Lohmann's cinematography is magnificent. Frankly saying, I liked it even more than The Silence Of The Lambs. I don't know why...
