Fatal Beauty: Woopi Goldberg plays an undercover cop. She doesn't stick by the rules. In her very early years she was on drugs, something happened and she got her act together. She is trying to take down a very bad man that has friends in high places. The movie has some funny parts in it. Then there is sam Elliott who by the way works for the drug dealer as his body guard. Things get very interesting and she straightens him out and gets the bad guys. It isn't one of her better movies but she is a good actor and pulls it off.
Running Scared: Has Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines as cops in Chicago. Lot of funny stuff, they don't play by the rules. They come up against a man who is bucking to become the first Spanish Godfather. It's really something to watch how they wind up getting him behind bars. Good action movie.
I only bought this dvd for "Running Scared" b/c it is such a funny buddy cop movie. I reviewed "Nighthawks" and commented that it seemed to pave the way for buddy cop action movies, one of which would later become "Lethal Weapon." "Running Scared" like the other two aforementioned flicks is about buddy cops, one black and one white, who are chasing a bad guy who may or may not be cute. I pointed out that in Lethal Weapon we had Gary Busey (not appealing) and in "Nighthawks" we had Rutger Hauer (very appealing) and now in "Running Scared" we have Jimmy Smits (pretty appealing.) Billy Crystal and Gregory Hines play the cops here and they are funny together. Lots of good action but nothing over-the-top. I am not a fan of Whoopi so I didn't bother watching "Fatal Beauty" but it was cheaper on Amazon to buy the double feature than it was to buy the movie I wanted by itself. Picture and sound are fine. No bonus features. Really kind of an underrated obscure 80's cop flick set in Chicago...
I'm giving 0 stars for the story, which except for a few scenes is pretty weak, 3 stars for Whoopie, and 5 stars for Sam Elliott just for showing up. I don't know how many stars to give to the 80s fashion, lol. If you want something that's pretty mindless entertainment and don't mind looking at and listening to Sam Elliott, then this movie isn't too bad. Just grab a bowl of popcorn and more beer than you'll need.
