Only one positive review and a 5/10 rating for a movie with so much awesomeness. This movie delivers exactly what it should, explosions, and lots of 'em. It also has gratuitous car chases (Corona V Jag?, Corona every time!) intentionally funny/corny dialogue, great scenery and locations, one of the worst songs I have ever heard (not 'Ghost Riders') and good performances from the two likable leads with George Wendt, ('Norm' from cheers), in a very small role. I guess the producers felt they needed a name to sell it on the American and European market. One of Murphy's best imo and should be, in a perfect world, a highly sought after cult movie. But whatever, I have my VHS copy and am just happy to have it.
The story ,which is very basic and not hard to follow, involves a hapless Kiwi reporter (Morrison) and his American girlfriend (Elibacher), who are pursued by seemingly unknown forces who will stop at nothing to kill them.
So many funny moments, but my favourite scene is the special forces guys in the helicopter who keep shooting at each other and complaining about it in strong Kiwi accents! High end cinema it ain't, but we knew that. One of the previous reviewers alludes to this film being tiresome and slow paced!!! No way, in fact the opposite is true, the pace rarely lets up, only to develop the characters a little, as any good movie should. 8/10 from me.
