Powers Boothe and Jennfer Beals both came close becoming stars but just didn't quite make it. Maybe because they were involved with too many "B" movies like this with dumb dialog and a lot of gratuitous sex, although it's obvious they used a stand-in for Beals on the sex scenes.
They play two immoral people and the film tries to make a good person out of Beals near the end, but that was ludicrous since the woman was anything but "good." The best thing the film had going for it were several interesting twists and some good suspense in parts. I'll give it a couple of stars for that, especially the beginning which was very good. Unfortunately, the rest of the film couldn't live up to the exciting opening scene.
