Earlier VHS releases from Universal Home Video, as well as some television versions, also contained the altered songs. See more »

Lieutenant? I just got these latest transfer orders from the Captain.
Yeah, don't sing me any operas. I'm not feeling well right now and I'm in a bad mood.

It was 1981 and the world had just gone through a decade of terrorism. Casting Rutger Hauer and Persis Khambatta (she was the bald woman in the original Star Trek movie) as heartlessly cold terrorists was great casting! Billy Dee Williams and Stallone as street cops suddenly transferred to a terrorist unit do a good job. Stallone had not become a parody of himself yet and his diction is better here than it had ever been up to then. The movie's pace is unrelenting. This is a movie that I almost always have to stop and watch, easily getting swiped up into the story again and again, when I see it on television. Excellent twist ending and monorail scene. Recommended highly.
