I seem to recall seeing Fatal Beauty for the very first time on TV. I think I'm right in saying that it was screened in place of a scheduled program that was cancelled. I was glued to the film from start to finish. Oddly enough I recall that it was given very poor reviews. In fact one reviewer stated that Whoopi Goldberg was trying to emulate Eddie Murphy's Beverley Hills Cop and failing in an abysmal fashion. My response to that is; codswallop! The Beverley Hills trilogy and Fatal Beauty are classed as crime/comedy/action films. Oddly enough a few months ago I watched Beverley Hills Cop I & II back to back. While the original is a good film, the second is something of a let down and the third... the less said about that one, the better.

At this point I will state that I like Eddie Murphy, but I love Whoopi Goldberg. Fatal Beauty may indeed be a crime/comedy/action flick, but for those who have not seen it, there is a serious underlying message that comes over loud and clear about the potential consequences of taking illegal narcotics. There are no underlying messages in the aforementioned Eddie Murphy films. The most moving part of the film is when Whoopi (Rita Razzoli), gives Sam Elliott (Mike Marshak), her reasons for her dedication in fighting the good fight against the targeted crime boss. If you have not seen the film I will not spoil it here by telling you her reason. See the film for yourself.

Then we have Sam Elliott, who is an excellent if unwilling partner, to begin with. He is actually head of security for the crime boss (Harris Yulin), tasked with keeping Rita from coming to harm and siding with Rita in two well staged gunfights. I also have to mention Rubin Blades, who actually does a good job, playing the role of Rita's somewhat put upon cop partner. All in all it's one of my favourite films in this field. Hence the 5 stars (personal rating of 95%. Almost as high as "Heat" which is at the very top of my more serious films on criminal activity). I for one cannot recommend Fatal Beauty highly enough. It's worth every penny and then some!!!

Bought this as a present for my sister who likes Whoopie, and has been a big fan of Sam Elliot for quite a while. I saw the film when it first came out in the cinema, I like the film and plot, my sister hadn't heard of it before. She liked it to, but not overly keen on the swearing (the "C" word was used several times).

This film puts Whoopi Goldberg as a cop and she plays the part faultlessly it's quite serious and is also humourus. Sam elliot plays a brilliant part as her bodyguard
