Intriguing, suspenseful and action-packed, this movie is great!
18 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie at a theatre back in 1986 when it first came out. I enjoyed it a lot. It starred Akosua Busia, who is now married to movie writer, producer and director John Singleton. I thought Akosua was so beautiful back then. I vividly remember her lovely dark skin and gorgeous lips. She played in quite a few more movies back in the '80s too. Some commenter claims he saw it just ten years ago and he complained about the audio and visual quality. He obviously didn't see the theatrical release, which had fine quality. He probably saw a poor copy of a video tape which would likely explain the quality issues he mentioned. If a title is only available on VHS, I always go to reputable renters like the national companies because they carry the original tapes, not duplicates made from a single original tape like many smaller video stores do.
