It looks great but is a little dumb, just like many Hollywood stars and their vehicles are. Costner and Stowe were still ascending when this one came out, and the late great Tony Scott made the movie look as good as the stars looked. Unfortunately the story is not very good. Logic would dictate you do not betray your very violent friend/husband right under his and his numerous omnipresent staff's noses in a Mexico that he can literally get away with murder in. Costner has two very obvious paths open to him; either flee to the U. S. border without Stowe, or flee to the border with Stowe. SPOILER ALERT! He chooses a third option that keeps the movie going for another 80 minutes. Implausibilities abound, but it is not entirely unpleasant.
