Since I have a weak spot for Mel Gibson, I thought I should check this movie. At the time, he was at the peak of his popularity (he made this movie just after ‘Lethal Weapon 2’ and, 5 years later he would direct and star in ‘Braveheart’). Eventually, it was nothing really great but it was at least better than ‘Air America’ released the same year, though I might give it a 2nd chance at ... read more

Eventually, it was nothing really great but it was at least better than ‘Air America’ released the same year, though I might give it a 2nd chance at some point.
