    A remake of Jacques Tourneur's noir classic Out of the Past (1947), in this version a labyrinthine web of corruption touches on the world of pro football. When an injury-riddled body causes pro football player Terry Brogan (Jeff Bridges) to be cut by his team, Jake Wise (James Woods), a shady gambler friend, hires him to locate his spoiled, erratic girlfriend Jessie (Rachel Ward). Terry's attempt to glean Jessie's whereabouts from the girl's coldly aristocratic mother (Jane Greer) leads to a lucrative counteroffer to keep Jessie away from Jake if he finds her. After refusing, Terry heads for scenic Cozumel, where he eventually runs down the stunning young woman. A mutual attraction quickly develops and the pair are less than eager to return to California. Painfully, Terry tells Jessie about his involvement in a betting scandal which has put him under Jake's control. Meanwhile Jake, who is angered by the delay, senses that something is going on, and sends Terry's conditioning coach, Sully (Alex Karras), to find the couple. When he finally locates them, sweatily making love in a Mayan temple, tragedy ensues, spinning the ill-fated Terry into a world of boundless deceit and corruption.

    A stylish romantic thriller starring the handsome and charismatic Jeff Bridges in a superb performance, as a unemployed and disgruntled ex-football player who accepts a job from a shady nightclub owner and ex-teammate, played by James Woods in brilliantly sleazy performance to find his girlfriend played beautifully by the stunning Rachel Ward who's run off to Mexico, but the plot thickens when he falls in love with her. Wonderful supporting performances by Richard Widmark, Jane Geer, Dorian Harewood and Alex Karras. Skillfully directed by Taylor Hackford, great sensual love scenes, a hair-rasing race along Sunset Boulevard and a haunting Oscar nominated title song by Phil Collins are some of the film's highlights. An enjoyable modern film noir. Highly Recommended.

    A football quarterback, Terry (Jeff Bridges) is asked by his friend Jake (James Woods) to go to Mexico and track down Woods' girlfriend, Jessie (Rachel Ward). Reluctantly Terry sets off for Mexico where he finds Jessie but he soon falls in love with her. I thought the love triangle between Jeff Bridges, Rachel Ward, and James Woods was very well done. We have a little bit of everything thrown in here, betrayal, deceit, bribery, greed, crime, and some steamy sex scenes and it seems only Terry and Jessie's passion for each other is pure. I wouldn't spoil it but you just gotta love the ending when reality kicks in. The scenery in this movie is beautiful as is the magnificent theme song of Phil Collins.
