When the first manned mission to Mars meets with a catastrophic and mysterious disaster after reporting an unidentified structure, a rescue mission is launched to investigate the tragedy and bring back any survivors.
Harry Valentini and Moe Dickstein are both errand boys for the Mob. When they lose two hundred fifty thousand dollars, they are set up to kill each other. But they run off to Atlantic City, and comedy follows.
Ricky Santoro is a flamboyant and corrupt Atlantic City cop with a dream: become so well connected that he can become mayor. In lieu of that, he'll settle for keeping his comfortable lifestyle. On the night of the heavyweight boxing championship, Rick becomes mixed up in the assassination of the Secretary of Defense, an assassination involving his best friend. Becoming the investigating officer in the case, Rick soon uncovers a conspiracy to kill the Secretary and a mysterious woman in white. The conspiracy was shocking, but not half as shocking as the identity of its mastermind.Written by

The opening 20 minute Steadicam sequence is not really one continuous shot - there are numerous hidden edits. At least 12 minutes of the sequence was done in one take. See more »
The ring shown at the end of the credits puzzles many audiences. It belonged to a woman that Dunne killed and put into a cement mixer, so claims that it introduces some continuity error related to Santoro are wrong. See more »
I was three feet away from a known terrorist, and I had my eyes buried in some broad's tits.
Well, Kevin, this may not make you feel better, but don't you see? That's what she was there for. That was the plan. To give you a boner. And you got one. Congratulations, you're human.

The end credits scroll over a construction site scene (presumably the new casino), closing in tighter and tighter until the final shot is of a bright red jewel embedded in a concrete pillar that the workmen are installing. Most of the time the jewel is hidden under the hand of one of the workers. The ring was worn by the red-haired woman/Navy agent who was part of Commander Kevin Dunn's scheme. See more »
When I saw the preview to this movie. I thought it had a good premise. But when I saw it in theaters. I thought this movie was incredibly bad. It was poorly directed by Brian De palma(im sorry to say) and poorly acted by Nicholas Cage and Gary Sinise(im also sorry to say). This movie at times seems to have a few good suspencful moments. But its bland and dumb. Don't waste your money.
