Movie Info

Supermodel and sex symbol Cindy Crawford made her acting debut in this high-decibel thriller. Kate McQuean (Crawford) is a lawyer who -- in the course of a divorce proceeding -- attempts to seize a 157-foot freighter docked off the Florida coast in lieu of unpaid alimony. It turns out that the freighter is the current base of operations of Kazak (Steven Berkoff), a former KGB agent who has become an international money laundering expert and leader of a crack terrorist team. As one might imagine, Kazak is not especially happy about possible eviction, and soon Kate has a hefty price on her head. Kate, however, doesn't know the nature of Kazak's business and isn't sure why someone is trying to kill her. Loose cannon police detective Max Kilpatric (William Baldwin) is assigned to protect Kate, and romance begins to bloom as they dodge a remarkable number of bullets and explosions. Fair Game was originally slated to star Sylvester Stallone alongside Crawford (the film's location was moved to Florida at his request); when he dropped out, Crawford found herself co-starring with Baldwin, another model-turned-thespian.more

An enjoyable movie.

One could scavenge the thesaurus to find synonyms for 'awkward' to describe Crawford's performance.

Crawford packs a phallic pistol and traipses through the rain in a transparent slip. Share the fantasy, babe.

Top Critic

The lamest model-turned-actress movie since Lauren Hutton co-starred with Evel Knievel in the misbegotten Viva Knievel!

Howlingly bad -- so awful, in fact, that it can actually be enjoyed on a certain level.

Works as a thriller for anyone who lives entirely in the present. Those with longer memories will find the film grows increasingly funny as it rolls along.

Audience Reviews for Fair Game

it looks just very typical 90s action movies...at least, the action scenes don't look as fake-assed as those cgi-saturated action movies in 2000s, for example, die hard 4 (super-fake), even the plots aren't logical at all. why russian terrorists have to spend big money to set dynamite in some woman lawyer's house to keep her from suing them? (just because she's cindy crawford?) why don't they just send some assassin to sneak into her house to strangle her or give her a stab in the back? (more lowe-key and economical, i suppose.) or just kill the women who hires the lawyer to prosecute the male owner of the ship so she won't make a fuss anymore? once again, just like all the hollywood movies, couples have to make love when they just have a violent fight, then at the urge of passion(or hormone), they have to shag even they might get blown off by a bomb or machine gun. death and sex mingled together are just fun?

or is it super-cool to die under the paramout of orgasm with a bullet in your sperm-ful(pun intended) head? haha.

The action film is exhilarating, but the script for supermodel Cindy Crawford's coming-out party as lead actress is amateurish.
