Based on a true story, Raymond Fernandez (Jared Leto) and Martha Beck (Salma Hayek) are two psychopaths with a passion for hot-blooded sex and cold-blooded murder. Placing ads in singles magazines, they prey on a series of rich, lonely women, whom they later swindle and kill. Leaving a trail of bodies that stretches from New York to Michigan, Raymond and Martha believe they're literally getting away with murder, until homicide detectives Elmer C. Robinson (John Travolta) and Charles Hildebrandt (James Gandolfini) pick up their trail.
Bonnie and Clyde-esque

At times unpalatable, this is the true story of two small time swindlers who join forces and move on to murder. Salma Hayek is brilliant as cold, calculating Martha who wants to totally control Raymond and feels no remorse at anything they do. John Travolta is also excellent as the cop who will stop at nothing to hunt them down, whilst dealing with his own personal problems and demons. A good, but not altogether enjoyable, film.
