Fair Game is a 1995 action thriller originally intended as a star vehicle for supermodel Cindy Crawford, who starred in the film as Kate McQuean, a Miami lawyer who is targeted by Russian mobsters for assassination. William Baldwin co-starred as the Miami detective assigned to protect her. Unfortunately, a very weak script and lackluster direction resulted in a critically lambasted film and poor box office, with most of the criticism aimed at the lead actress and made Fair Game her first and only foray into film as the star. It was not entirely fair to direct all of the critical wrath at Ms. Crawford. She had little formal training and was a beginner actor but she was an experienced television personality and spokesperson and with training and experience she may have eventually excelled at acting, but the poor dialogue and bad script, especially for a novice actress, really presented her in a poor light and Andrew Sipes was not a veteran action film director. Many have suggested that a better script that was not heavy with bad dialogue and direction designed to take the pressure off her and lean more on her experienced supporting actors, would have been a much better product. Despite this, the film had many good elements. Fair Game was the second feature film adaptation of the Paula Gosling novel (the first being 1986's Cobra) and was produced by veteran action producer Joel Silver (Lethal Weapon) with lots of chases and gunfights and many nods to directors James Cameron and Michael Bay in the cinematography and editing. The film even enlisted the Bad Boys composer Mark Mancina, who contributed a top notch score. But great elements cannot fix a fundamentally flawed project. The film ended up being a groan inducing 'knock off' of the action thrillers of the 90s.

The following weapons were used in the film Fair Game (1995):


Beretta 92FS Inox

The Beretta 92FS Inox is the sidearm carried by Detective Max Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin) and is used by him throughout the film. During an intimate moment, Kate McQuean (Cindy Crawford) picks up the Inox pistol and uses it to take out an assassin.

Beretta 92FS Inox - 9x19mm. This pistol was the screen used gun, used throughout the film by Det. Max Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin) and Kate McQuean (Cindy Crawford) in the film Fair Game (1995).
The Beretta 92FS Inox is clearly seen in Kirkpatrick's shoulder holster, here seen as he argues with a younger (and relatively unknown) Salma Hayek, who would 'break out' in the film Desperado later in the year.
Det. Max Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin) struggles with his Beretta 92FS Inox during a freeway chase, almost dropping the gun on the highway several times.
Det. Max Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin) almost falls out the door during a high speed chase with his Beretta 92FS Inox.
Kirkpatrick's Beretta 92FS Inox falls and slides across the roof of a towed vehicle before getting caught in the railing. (Note that this image is clearly reversed, as evident from the fact that the slide release and magazine release are both not visible, indicating that this is the right side of the gun.)
Kirkpatrick (William Baldwin) leaves his loaded Beretta 92FS Inox on the hood of a car when he decides to have sex with Kate McQuean (Cindy Crawford).
Kate McQuean (Cindy Crawford) grabs the Beretta and fires, killing a would be assassin during an interrupted sex act. Interestingly enough, the only time she handles the Beretta is when she's naked.

Beretta 92FS

The Beretta 92FS is used by several other police officers and detectives.

SWD Cobray Street Sweeper

Russian assassin Stefan (Gustav Vintas) uses a SWD/Cobray Street Sweeper rotary shotgun during the freeway chase. One of the details differentiating it from the Striker is the lack of a Cylinder advance lever and the style of winding key in front of the drum.
