An appalling example of bad filmmaking
31 May 1999 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Cold Steel is one of the most atrocious crime films I've ever seen. It's little more than a tv movie of the week with foul language, and it's badly written to boot. Sharon Stone ends Cold Steel with the immortal line, "I hate sushi". Perhaps 'screenwriter' Moe Quigley is one of Joe Eszterhas' biggest influences.

Avoid at all costs.
