A retired US Navy pilot comes to Mexico, where he falls in love with the wife of a powerful businessman. The consequences will be cruel and unforeseen.
When Don Johnson threatened to leave Miami Vice (1984) in 1986, it was speculated that he had already signed on to star this project.
Michael J. 'Jay' Cochran:
I love you.
Michael J. 'Jay' Cochran: She wants to go outside.
Miryea: I love you.
In the beginning scenes of Jay flying his last mission, his backseat officer, who is also his good friend, continually refers to him as "sir." In the real Navy, fighter crews of roughly equal rank are a close-knit group, and would rarely use the formal word "sir." Instead, they would use first names or nicknames. This is especially true when the two aviators are close pals, as Jay and his backseater are.
The version included on the 2007 DVD and Blu-Ray releases is director Tony Scott's shorter cut, running 104 minutes. The original 124-minute version is producer Ray Stark's cut.
