Even though the movie doesn't leave much of a residue, it looks terrific while you're watching it: Manhattan has seldom appeared as glitzy or as glamorous.

Illogical, flawed or forced thrillers are all too common. Ones that knock your eyes out are rare.

A stylish and romantic police thriller which manages, through the sleek direction of Ridley Scott and persuasive ensemble performances, to triumph over several hard-to-swallow plot developments.

A guilty pleasure: Ridley Scott's fourth film is a minor work, a semi-effective combo of cop thriller and erotic noir melodrama, but it has nice visual style and the perfromances by Tom Berenger, Mimi Rogers and especially Lorraine Barcco are likable.

Most of New York, indoors and out, looks about as good as the Chrysler Building in Scott's gleaming fusion of eternal triangle and killer-on-the-loose.

Beneath the slick performances and sumptuous production values lies a smart critique of late-1980s consumerism and, suprisingly, a genuinely engaging take on relationships.
