Good story & acting.
Very Wealthy 999
It was probably one of the best movies ever made with Theresa Russell and shows her at her best.
Heinz Gf Matuschka
Russell is hot onscreen, so hot the screen melts, even when she plays it straight.

The alluring Theresa Russell has made a healthy film career out of playing prostitutes (one of her films was actually titled WHORE). In IMPULSE, also starring Jeff Fahey, Russell plays Lottie, an undercover cop who most often poses as---you guessed it---a prostitute.

Russell is hot onscreen, so hot the screen melts, even when she plays it straight. As an actress, she has a lock on the confused inner motivations of good girls gone bad or bad girls trying to be good, and it's hard to take your eyes off of her, not at least partially because she's engaging and imbues her emotionally conflicted characters with both depth and pathos.

Lottie poses as the hook in a major drug bust being managed by FBI agent Fahey who promptly falls into bed and in love with her. Lottie reacts typically---although she disdains this "nice guy," she yearns toward him as well.

Lottie's career is on the skids. In counseling and under Internal Affairs scrutiny, after a particularly brutal shootout, she impulsively goes over the line while having a drink in some bar and accompanies a stranger home for money. She reconsiders before her shoes get kicked under the bed, but while she makes her exit, this boyfriend d'jour is the victim of a hit. The circumstances of course compromise Lottie, who finds she can't tell the straight-shooting Fahey the full truth. Enter George Dzundza (Lieutenant Morgan) the embittered cop with a grudge against Lottie, who delights in sabotaging the Fahey-Russell relationship.

The chemistry between Fahey and Russell is palpable and the acting is excellent despite the overall "B" movie atmosphere. Russell's characterization is surprisingly strong, and the story doesn't let go until the credits roll.

Far better than you'd expect, IMPULSE delivers, and comes well recommended.

I haven't seen this one for awhile, but it should be released on DVD, in my opinion. I have always enjoyed the performances of Jeff Fahey and Theresa Russell, separately, in their own respective careers, but in "Impulse" they are dynamite together. They have palpable chemistry that makes the film work. Their sex scene when they first get together was very hot, and very real. Good plot, good directing by Sondra Locke, good acting by Fahey, Russell, and a capable supporting cast. Good cop drama, that needs to be released on DVD!

Impulse(1990) is a stylish neo-noir that delivers good action with underlying layers of deception. It displays Russell's finest performance that captures the conflicts within her playing L.A.'s best undercover vice cop. It is indeed about time that it is now on dvd so that fans of both neo-noir,as well as police action-thrillers, can fully appreciate this underrated film. Russel plays Lottie Mason, who, is wild, dangerous, and kinky. Lottie is constantly in conflict with her job in vice and her real straight identity as an honest cop. When we first see Lottie walking down Hollywood Boulevard, we are also drawn to the decay of this side of Hollywood, with streets at night drenched with the rain-soaked neon signs of the cheap hotels that line the Boulevard. Lottie is dressed in a skin-tight, vinyl mini-dress with stiletto heels playing a prostitute. Her job is to lure men and then call in reinforcements after the "john" commits a bookable offense. Therein lies the perpetual conflict that Lottie faces every day and night. As an officer of the law, she is supposed to be honest and "good". But her job in vice demands that She be deceptive and "bad". Russel captures the never-ending conflict very well, both in her actions, as well as in her face and body. So this constant conflict captures Lottie as she teeters on the very thin line separating her life as a cop from the lurid, tantalizing life of neon glitz. As the film moves forward, it captures the toll that it takes on Lottie, especially evident in her face and body language. When Lottie stumbles into a situation in which she finds a key to a locker where she finds a suitcase with one million dollars in cold cash, she is once again caught in a cinflict as whether or not to keep the cash or play it straight and turn it in to the authorities.Read more ›

Finally released. Wonderful directorial triumph. Rarely have the mean streets and scary nights looked so beautiful, so reflective of what's going on in the character's experience. The action and love story are beautifully paced. And Teresa Russell has never been more vulnerably explosive--directed to a wonderfully nuanced performance.

I agree with the comments of others on this movie. A movie this good should be preserved on DVD. The only copies available are used VHS tapes from rental libraries. It would be a shame to lose this film.

This movie is a favorite of my family member but it has been out for some years. I was concern about the quiality of the movie since it was used and not as popular when it first came out. The color and condition was just excellent just as advertise...I was very happy with how fast it arrived and the condition of the DVD.

If you like crime thrillers, then this has to be one to watch. Although the fashions of the 1980's are now looking a little bit dated, the film direction and acting kept me totally engaged right through to the end of the film. Theresa Russell is absolutely first class as the vice cop.
