Nighthawks

This is a classic transitional 80's action cop drama starring none other than Sly Stallone. Battling an international terrorist on the streets of NYC is no easy task but being the one-talent actor that he is, Stallone summons up the will to take down Wulfgar. There are some great quotable lines.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Sylvester Stallone and Rutger Hauer, I thought I should give it a try. Eventually, even though it was not bad, it was still not really convincing either. Basically, it is an awkward mix between the 70s' gritty thrillers and the 80's buddy cop action flicks and even though this mix was intriguing, it didn't work very well... read more

Conservative street cop DaSilva reluctantly agrees to terminate an international terrorist who has demanded media attention. But DaSilva's "at-home" tactics are very much put to the challenge.

25 From 81: My Favorite Films Of 1981 (25 movies items)

"When a terrorists strikes in New York, there is only cop who can stop him: the one who is played by Sylvester Stallone. And sure, maybe the plot of Nighthawks never seems to give a solid explanation as to why the terrorist has decided to go berserk in the one of the most popular cities in the world, thereby making him easy to find. But that doesn't matter. The point is, his is the kind of villainy that can only be dealt with the kind of super-sinewy justice that only the Slyster can serve. "

"First Viewing Viewed: February 12th Plot: Conservative street cop DaSilva reluctantly agrees to terminate an international terrorist who has demanded media attention. But DaSilva's "at-home" tactics are very much put to the challenge. Nighthawks is an entertaining little action-thriller, which is bolstered by the acting prowess of Sylvester Stallone, Billy Dee Williams and Rutger Hauer. The project was originally developed to be The French Connection III in pre-production, and the movie actu"

Ja een zes is nog redelijk en heb op Blade Runner en Batman Begins na nog geen Hollywood films met Rutger Hauer gezien. Zal hem eens bekijken binnenkort.

@brawljeff, je mag ook in Nederlands commentaar geven ;) Ik had ook de dvd minstens een jaar in mijn kast. Niet slecht, je mag hem gerust bekijken.

“I wasn't sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Sylvester Stallone and Rutger Hauer, I thought I should give it a try. Eventually, even though it was not bad, it was still not really convincing either. Basically, it is an awkward mix between the 70s' gritty thrillers and the 80's buddy cop action flicks and even though this mix was intriguing, it didn't work very well. As a result, you get an endless set-up and since the movie was rather short (just above 90 minutes), the 2nd half felt really rushed. Still, I liked the grim look of the whole thing, the dialogs were pretty rough and Stallone and Hauer were both really charismatic. Back in those days, Stallone was still trying to make it as a legit actor, even though except for his 'Rocky' movies, all his other” read more

"6.7 PC Ihan kivaa, joskin vähän tapahtumatonta kasaria. Ei ainakaan mitään niin tylsää paskaa kuin mitä katselukumppanit väittivät, koska pelkästään Syltyn olemus parran ja lasien kera jo naurattaa paljon. Mies on myös uskomaton poliisi, hän on aluksi nappaamassa pikkurikollisia kadulta mummoksi naamioutuneena ja käytyään jotain antiterrorismikurssia ainakin n. puoli tuntia elokuvan kestosta, hän tunnistaa Rutger Hauerin pahiksen välittömästi piirroksesta, jonka hän oli i"

"Sylvester Stallone sporting poofy black hair and a complete beard n' mustache combo partners up with Billy Dee Williams, whose acting is so far over the top it's subtle, to battle international terrorist, Rutger Hauer! Cool stuff all over the place culminating in an awesome cable car set piece. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . "

"Watched: 28.8 Edustaa kehnompaa Sylttyä mitä yleensä, vaikka kyllä tää iha viihdyttävä pätkä oli. Billy Dee Williams on liiankin turhanpuoleinen Syltyn apurina, mutta Hauer pahiksena on hyvä. "

"Watched 2.5 ---------- Niitä Stallonen vähemmälle huomiolle jääneitä elokuvia, eikä suotta. Tässä ei nimittäin ole mitään, mikä tekisi tästä jotenkin erilaisen massasta poikkeavan kyttäleffan. Terroristijahti muuttuu hyvin äkkiä tylsäksi ja väkinäiseksi, eikä kovin hyvä juttu ole sekään, että myös hahmot ovat tylsiä. Syltyllä ei ole sitä karismaa, mitä ukolla on monessa muussa leffassaan, eikä Billy Dee Williamsin rooli Syltyn sidekickinä ole mitenkään merkitt"
