    I saw this back when, as my first Richard Gere movie. Besides Internal Affairs (where he played a corrupt cop) his movies thereafter seemed out of character (law-abiding, uptight). This is the real Richard Gere (a lowlife) which is why he plays it so well. His acting is spot-on as a charming sociopath. Valerie's acting is terrible and difficult to watch, but it's an entertaining movie for females, as sexy, manly bad boys are attractive to date. Men might not enjoy this movie. Fair amount of nudity.

    Richard Gere is so full of energy the movie itself could've used more momentum though Valerie Kaprisky is really good too not a great film but these two make it worthwhile

    Not much more interesting than the original but at least it has some visual flare. I don't hate this like the french version, so that's something.

    My logical mind doesn't get what Monica sees in Jesse, but love isn't usually logical.

    All over the place with a pointless script.

    Cheesy for the most part and very dated, but weirdly enjoyable.

    Remake of Á Bout de souffle. Quality soundtrack and I actually creamed my togs when Valérie Kaprisky got the charlies out for the first time. Nice comic book references and even though I am a Richard Gere fan, he is terrible in this and knocks a star off the final rating. If Cage had of been in it , itwould have been the greatest film ever made.
