A Blast of a Movie
15 September 2002 | by (Amsterdam, Holland) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie many years back, and still looking for it to have it on CD, DVD or tape. This is realy the most wannahave movie I know. The entire movie is filled with action all action is also captured on a way you get the feeling you are right there like a spectator in the scene. The best part yet must be the scene in which our leading role player jumps of a skyscraper just seconds before the penthouse is blown up. Look how he jumps down grabbing a robe on the way down and securing him to fall all the way untill he is almost on the ground to grab the robe again to slow him down. His feet hit the ground and in the penthouse the **** hits the fan, BANG and the skyscraper is a little bit shorter. A real MUST SEE Movie.
