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

Even with the brilliant role of Rutger Hauer, this film gradually loses its effect. The beginning in the Bronx is very strong indeed, but at the end of the movie, you feel they ran out of ammo. I still think this is a pretty good police movie.

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.

"Sylvester Stallone pukeutuu täti Monikan markkinakamppeisiin ja nalkittaa nykiläisiä ryöstöaikeisia katunilkkejä dude looks like a lady -toimintaperiaatteella yhdessä poliisiparinsa Billy Dee Williamsin kanssa. Toiminnassa ei ole mitään järkeä, jos sitä miettii sekunnin pidempään. Rutger Hauer on tosi paha eurooppalainen terroristi Wolfgar, oikea jenkkien kauhukuva eurooppalaisesta: sivistynyt, kielitaitoinen, tyylikkäästi pukeutunut ja komea maailmankansalainen, joka on kuitenki"
