This femme-fatale thriller expects viewers to root for its gullible hero, but no amount of steamy atmosphere can make audiences sympathize with someone so clueless. Hot-tempered but honorable marine Rush Hawkins (Steven Bauer) will have reason to regret both his encounters with socialite Lisa (Frankie Thorn). A few years ago, while on leave in a Mexican border town, Rush rescued the slumming Lisa from a rapist in a dive. After serving time for manslaughter, ex-con Rush lands a job in a car wash with his buddy, Angel (Louis Mandylor). One day, he gets to polish Lisa's luxury vehicle; she's now married to Houston shipping magnate Alex Mathison (Jim Metzler) and is in a position to do her

forgotten Sir Galahad some good. Lisa persuades Alex to hire Rush as a live-in bodyguard; the job description includes protecting Alex from Karl Lorens (Fred Dryer), a loan shark who claims the pillar of society ripped him off. Bewitching Rush at every opportunity, Lisa has a secret agend, one she shares with her so-called sister, Kim (Brenda Bakke). Though Alex apparently perishes conveniently perishes in a fire, Rush doesn’t drive off into the sunset with the merry widow. Karl, meanwhile, is convinced that the double-crossing Alex is alive somewhere and that his accomplice, Lisa, knows the location. The principals converge at a dock and a tempting bag of money changes hands several times; it looks as though Rush is slated to be Lisa's patsy once more, as the vixen prepares to rid herself of Rush, Karl and her "late" husband. This film's simple moral — keep a clear head when dealing with duplicitous bisexual babes — and BODY HEAT-derived twists and turns will barely satisfy the appetites of film noir junkies.
