Uneven Action Yarn
7 December 2001 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

"The Wild Pair" jumps wildly between comedy, action and drama. Smith and Bridges are mismatched as a pair of cops who stumble upon a hate group out to cause mayhem. The action is brutal, particularly a scene where Smith's girlfriend is butchered. This movie is somewhat of a Bridges family affair: a couple of Beau Bridges' sons are featured in small roles, and his dad Lloyd is good as the head of the hate group.
