Stallone + Stone = Fireworks!
This seems like a film tailor-made so Sly & Sharon can 'strut their stuff' in the coupling dept. Sharon vamps, Sly warbles thru his lines. Yea, he's got a deep & sexy voice but you can only pick up on what he's saying to her on the phone if you got close-caption on your set! Anyway, they both look VERY fine in this film. James Woods is the pest you'll love to hate being the back-stabber that he is. "Slime" is the only word to use for Eric Roberts role & Rod Steiger's Hispanic accent is fun! See the edited version of this one. It's got a slick color to it that's quite appealing being that it was shot in Miami where everything's bright pink & green.

Trivia

Sylvester Stallone demanded for some of James Woods's scenes to be cut out of the movie and for some of his scenes to be re-shot in order for Stallone to have more screen time. The reason for that was because Stallone was worried that Woods would "steal" the movie away because he was a better actor then him. Stallone also cut out some Rutger Hauer's scenes from Nighthawks (1981) for same reasons.

Tomas Leon: You like to live dangerously, don't you?
May Munro: A little danger never killed anyone. Right, baby?
Tomas Leon: Sometimes.


Goofs

When Ray calls Ned at the police station, he times the call so that he wouldn't be 'traced' and clears it after precisely 58 seconds. The call would have been via digital exchange and the number would have been displayed instantly as it is a feature provided for billing purposes. Previous electro mechanical (strowger) exchanges required time for the call to be manually traced through selector banks and distribution frames, often through several different buildings miles apart and always referring to wiring records. The time taken varied enormously and depended upon the skill and knowledge of the engineers. Strowger exchanges are now obsolete and would have been highly unlikely to be operating in the area of Florida where the movie is set. Hollywood even today has not moved on from this antiquated and outdated plot device.
