Goofs

During the scene where the police chase the bad guys where they're shooting at each other; one of the police officer fires and hits the bad guy's car rear tail light. But in the next scene as the car zooms by both tail lights are perfectly intact. And then in the later scenes the tail light's smashed again. See more »

Very enjoyable.......
22 September 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Somewheres in between 'Beverly Hills Cop' and 'Lethal Weapon' you find this. Good cop/buddy action flick, plenty of humour, the violence is for real, the chemistry between the two leads and Stowe Just right. I enjoy the scene where she shifts her position JUST so slightly, its quite erotic, while the pranks the two cops play on each other are quite funny too.

Its fun watching how put out Estevez gets with the older guy whose clearly not acting his age.

There's nothing terribly deep here, and some of its really dated-Lethal Weapon-ish graphics, the cars, the angry black squad leader, the music(Miami Sound Machine, anyone?), etc, traditional boatchase/fight/battle to the death inside hellacious warehouse/factory finale, etc all par for the course.

But no biggies. The second one wasn't nearly as good's this one.

*** outta ****
