Fatal Beauty Movie Review Summary

Actors: Whoopi Goldberg, Sam Elliott, Ruben Blades, Harris Yulin

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Fatal Beauty

Rita Rizzoli (Goldberg) is a narcotics detective in the Hollywood area. A drug shipment gets hijacked, but the thieves are unaware that the stuff is unusually pure, and this "Fatal Beauty" starts leaving a string of bodies in the streets. Rizzoli has her eye on a "legitimate" businessman, Conrad Kroll (Yulin), as being behind everything, so Kroll has his chief of security, Mike Marshak (Elliott) accompany Rizzoli to keep an eye on her. Marshak tells himself he's clean because he hasn't handled the drugs, but becomes increasingly unnerved by the pileup of bodies -- and not just from drugs: some of the bad guys are so crazy they use humans for target practice. Obviously a vehicle to make Goldberg a "Beverly Hills Cop" like Eddie Murphy, this 1987 "Miami Vice in Hollywood" is unnecessarily graphic and a bit incoherent, despite some sincere acting by Elliott. Watch for Brad Dourif and Cheech Marin in supporting roles.
