Cat Chaser ★★ 1990

Weller walks listlessly through the role of an ex-soldier in Miami who has an affair with the wife of an exiled—but still lethal—military dictator. Surpisingly low-key, sometimes effective thriller that saves its energy for sex scenes, also available in a less steamy, 90-minute “R” rated version. Based on an Elmore Leonard novel. 97m/C VHS, DVD . Kelly McGillis, Peter Weller, Charles Durning, Frederic Forrest, Tomas Milian, Juan Fernandez; D: Abel Ferrara; W: Elmore Leonard, Jim Borrelli; M: Chick Corea.
