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.

An average movie

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

" Somehow this film seems twenty years too early for it's audience as it tackles a story about terrorists appearing in the U.S. Evil himself, Rutger Hauer meets face-to-face with a bearded Sylvester Stallone who never has looked more believable and weary in a film doing his first cop portrait on film. Realistic, gritty action where even bystanders can get killed resulted in heavy censoring, but it is still a fantastic underrated film that feels more believable today than when it first appeared.
