Michael Douglas stars as Nick Curran, a tough but vulnerable detective. Sharon Stone co-stars as Catherine Tramell, a cold, calculating and beautiful novelist with an insatiable sexual appetite. Catherine becomes a prime suspect when her boyfriend is brutally murdered - a crime she described in her latest novel. Obsessed with cracking the case, Nick descends into San Francisco's forbidden underground where suspicions mount, bodies fall and he finds within himself an instinct more basic than survival.




  • Brilliant

    Quite simply one of the best, sleek thrillers ever made - scandalous in its time. Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas at their best. Why no Buy HD ?
  • Good, but a bit too long for the storyline.

    By Vonnie1uk
    Good movie, but i felt it lasted too long and the story was really stretched out with lots of unnecessary irrelevant aspects. Michael Douglas is good in it, as usual.
