Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Taylor Hackford's impressively mounted film noir is well acted by the central triangle: Jeff Bridges, James Woods, and the sexy Rachel Ward.

Audience Reviews

3 stars

Despite the lovely locations, a nice car chase sequence, cool soundtrack, and even a top-class cast, this movie is somehow missing something. I think the storyline could have been improved.

Pales in comparison to the original, Out of the Past, but it's not awful in its own right. Worth a look.

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.
