Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 02/11/1994
"...[Basinger and Baldwin's] appeal as a couple of gorgeous outlaws is the main reason to see this sleek, entertaining remake....[The stars] have the wit and unabashed vanity to give this update a cynical 90's flavor..."
Variety - 02/14/1994
"...Baldwin fills the bill perfectly well....Madsen fashions a villain you love to hate..."
Los Angeles Times - 02/11/1994
"...A perfectly respectable thriller....As crisp and efficient as the crime it depicts..."

Product Description:

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger star in this remake of the 1971 film based on Jim Thompson's novel. A woman sleeps with a sleazy gangster to get her bankrobber husband out of jail, promising to do another bank job for him. When they are double-crossed, they flee the mob and the cops while questioning their own loyalty to each other. The unrated version includes a steamier scene between Basinger and Baldwin.

Plot Synopsis:

A high-powered remake of Sam Peckinpah's 1972 version of the Jim Thompson crime novel. Bank robber Doc McCoy, is sprung from a Mexican jail, through the efforts of his wife Carol, for services to be rendered in a complicated heist. However, the job turns out be a double-cross, and the two are forced to keep one step ahead of a mobster's hired gun in order to make it across the border into Mexico for safety.
