Doc McCoy is put in prison because his partners chickened out and flew off without him after exchanging a prisoner with a lot of money. Doc knows Jack Benyon, a rich “business”-man, is up to something big, so he tells his wife (Carol McCoy) to tell him that he’s for sale if Benyon can get him out of prison. Benyon pulls some strings and Doc McCoy is released again. Unfortunately he has to cooperate with the same person that got him to prison.
Roger Donaldson’s action thriller was a more explicit and revealing remake of Sam Peckinpah’s 1972 escape/chase film of the same name (starring Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw). It was produced in various versions including an uncut, unrated one.
The two stars in this remake were:
Doc McCoy (Alec Baldwin), a released Mexican prison con
Carol (Kim Basinger, Baldwin’s real-life wife at the time), Doc’s wife
The two experienced passionate sex scenes together while on the lam. They were being pursued by the law and by crooked partner Jack Benyon (James Woods).
