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.

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.

Howard Franklin's screenplay plays less like a feature film than like the pilot for a failed television series about New York policemen.

Movies like this are on automatic pilot. Unless we are very young, very naive or hopelessly lusting after one of the stars, there is little to interest us aside from interior decorating hints.

Scott, who directed "Alien" and "Blade Runner," looks at the world through veils of smog. What with these pictorial pollutants, he loses sight of plot.
