AN ATTORNEY AND A COP ON THE RUN FROM A HIGH TECH CRIME RINGTHAT CAN TRACK THEIR EVERY MOVE.
She's a lawyer. He's a cop. Some former KGB-types with a wide variety of slippery accents and enough sophisticated technological surveillance gadgets to make one wonder how the Soviet Union could have possibly failed, want her dead. The cop (William Baldwin) is the only man who can save her. It helps that the high-powered attorney is played by Cindy Crawford, who gives new meaning to the phrase "habeas corpus." So the plot doesn't make any sense: First they try to kill her, no questions asked. Then they capture her and spill their guts about all the details of their nefarious plan. But logic is not what Fair Game is about. It's about explosions, car crashes, and more explosions. The only pauses in the action are for showers (one for Baldwin, two for Crawford) and a change of clothing (Crawford slips out of a tight T-shirt into an even tighter tank top). The best feature of the DVD is the addition of a Gallic track. With very little actual sex in the movie, having the main characters conversing in French definitely adds some sauciness to the dialogue scenes. --Richard Natale

The problem I have isn't about the movie itself. I saw the movie before buying the DVD. Amazon should give a proper description of the items. Please at least, give the languages that are on the DVD! We don't know if the language we want really are on the DVD. The product description says that the DVD has the french language. The DVD I received didn't! I bought this item because I thought that I would get a DVD with the french language. I didn't get what I really paid for. And it's not the only item I bought that had this problem. The same review will be given to four more products!
I like amazon, but pleaaaaaaaase! For God's sake, give the product a proper and decent description!
There's not much of a plotline worth talking about -- at least not one that's coherent or logical. Fair Game is basically one long chase punctuated by a sex scene. William Baldwin plays Max Kirkpatrick, a cop. Crawford is Kathryn McQuean, a lawyer. The two don't like each other, but he saves her life anyway. Then he does an encore, but this time a few of his buddies get killed. So, the pair of them end up on the run from an ex-KGB heavy (interpreted with over-the-top gusto by Steven Berkoff) and his Russian mob. It's not clear why the bad guys want Kathryn dead, and things becomes even more confusing when, after trying for two-thirds of the movie to kill her, they suddenly change their minds and decide to capture her for interrogation.
The single bright spot in Fair Game -- and it's low-wattage at best -- is that the action scenes are nicely choreographed. And there are quite a few of them, because they have to camouflage a lame story and atrocious dialogue. We get treated to such wonderfully corny lines as: "I'm getting bored with your petty incompetence", "It would be embarrassing to be killed by an amateur", and "I can't afford the luxury of a conscience". The level of acting, by the way, is perfect for delivering those kinds of phrases.Read more ›
It's hard to believe that Cindy Crawford actually beat out anyone to win this part. Watching the movie, you almost feel bad for her. She's just in way over her head. I also don't understand why she's screaming throughout the entire movie.
William Baldwin gives his typical performance: not great, not horrible.
The storyline was silly and very uninteresting. A 2nd Grader has more imagination than the writers of this movie had.
I suppose that if you really hated Cindy Crawford for some reason, you'd enjoy watching her try to act in this film. Other than that, it's not good for much else.
Perhaps the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 robots would have a good time with this one, but you won't.

I don't own the DVD and in fact I didn't even rent the flick...technically -- it was mistakenly placed within the case of another movie. Nonetheless, I watched it... Read morePublished on Jan. 20 2004 by Agent Nick Castle
This is one of the worst movies of all time. The plot is so cheesy and the acting and action is so stupid. The romance is not good because there is no chemestry.Published on Jan. 2 2004 by George Rownd
I like Cindy Crawford. I really do. I respect the class she has maintained in an often classless fashion and modeling industry. But some people should stick to what they know. Read morePublished on Dec 15 2003 by Citysister
The acting is mechanical, and the plot was written by space aliens. Incredibly, there are some good points to the movie. The graphic violence alone is worth the money. Read morePublished on Aug. 12 2003 by Drey
William Baldwin, why? Cindy Crawford, yes! A tough cop has to protect a lawyer after she discovered a ship full of computer hackers. Got it? Good. Read morePublished on Aug. 13 2002 by Timotee
