A capable first film noir from John Dahl (Red Rock West, The Last Seduction) relies far too much on coincidence and no-one-would-really-do-that moments to work. Kilmer and his then-wife Whalley make a good pair as a bad excuse for a private investigator and the woman who hires him to fake her death. When the cops and the various criminals in pursuit of her (including Madsen in his most over-the-top role ever) catch up, it's a madhouse of slaughter! Nice try, but Dahl's later work is better (okay, not including Unforgettable).
