Towards the end of the movie, Petrovita's car is "heading south on Route 84". Earlier, Kaminski tells Monique to go to the Rock Falls Airport and charter a plane. Route 84 in Illinois runs from Wisconsin to the Quad-Cities. Even assuming he drove all the way to Wisconsin to take that route, it never goes to Rock Falls. See more »
I have been soaking up a lot of vicarious aggression lately with Van Damme, Stallone, and Ahnuld. I bet a lot of Arnie's fans have missed this little gem. No, we don't look for quality here, but Schwarzenegger does a credible job of acting and he keeps throwing out these funny lines that keep you in stitches.
Nothing original here - failed FBI agent, now small town Sheriff (think Bruce Willis in Hostage or Striking Distance, Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone, or many others who are out in the cold because of their screw-ups or someone's evil deed - called to infiltrate the mob and bring them down.
You know Arnie's going to get the job done with muscle and firepower. He even manages a little romance - damn little - with Kathryn Harrold.
Paybacks are hell!
