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.

Steamy, Entertaining Re-Make
This was a very entertaining, if morally way below par, action movie
which consistently keeps your attention with intense scenes. Kim
Bassinger probably looked as good as she ever looked which is saying a
lot. She has one of the steamiest scenes I've ever seen on a mainline
film (my tape was the "unrated" version) but at least it was with her
real-life husband (at the time) Alec Baldwin.
This re-make of the 1972 film also has Michael Madsen, James Woods,
Mike Morse and Jennifer Tilley – all playing sleazy characters. They
are so bad they make Baldwin & Bassinger look like monks. This movie is
not exactly Mary Poppins. There's almost too much of a mean edge to
it….almost. Perhaps I enjoy ogling Bassinger too much to can this
movie for its baseness.
Whatever, this entertains to the degree that it makes it a very quick
two hours. There is no way you could get bored watching this film.
