Off Limits is a thrilling action-drama about two soldiers, Buck McGriff (Willem Dafoe) and Sgt. First Class Arthur 'Spooky' Silva (Gregory Hines), who are tasked with investigating a series of brutal murders of Vietnamese prostitutes in Saigon during the Vietnam War. The two soldiers must team up to find the killer before they can carry out another senseless act of brutality.

The movie begins with the discovery of the first victim, a young Vietnamese woman, who has been brutally murdered. The two soldiers are immediately called in to investigate the case, as they are seen as the best two military investigators in the area. The investigation becomes even more complicated when it is revealed that the girl was also an informant for the American army.

Together, Buck and Spooky navigate the dark and gritty underbelly of Saigon, where they encounter a series of obstacles, from corrupt military officials to ruthless Vietnamese gangsters.

The tension is palpable throughout the movie, as both soldiers must tread carefully in a foreign land where their actions could have dire consequences.

At the heart of the movie is the relationship between Buck and Spooky, who are an unlikely pair. Buck is a quiet and introspective soldier who is haunted by his experiences in the war, while Spooky is a quick-witted and gregarious soldier who is always ready with a joke. Despite their differences, the two soldiers form a strong bond as they work together to solve the case.

The movie also explores some of the larger themes of the Vietnam War, such as the brutal nature of the conflict, the corruption within the military, and the mistreatment of the Vietnamese people. Through the investigation, Buck and Spooky must confront some uncomfortable truths about the nature of the war and the role that they are playing in it.
