“Iu0026#39;d had this tape around for a while before finally viewing it on a slow night. My expectations were not high. Iu0026#39;ve always felt Jim Thompson was over rated, reviews had been generally poor and Iu0026#39;d heard that the earlier version (which Iu0026#39;ve yet to see)was better. Perhaps because I wasnu0026#39;t expecting too much I found myself enjoying it. There was enough plot momentum, weird characters and spectacular action, not to mention some steamy sex (no need to be shocked, I understand Baldwin and Basinger were married at the time) that it held my interest throughout.”
