Storyline

Rival private eyes Ryo Saeba and Umibozu must find a way into a high-tech luxury hotel to rescue their friends who are being held hostage and stop a mad South American dictator's plans to use the hotel's supercomputer to unleash a nuclear holocaust. Highly reminiscent of Die Hard, right down to a scene where Ryu bunjee-jumps off of the roof of the hotel skyscraper with a fire hose. Written by Christopher E. Meadows <cmeadows@nyx.cs.du.edu>

Maybe he should be called Nookie Hunter
26 December 1999 | by (Bay City) – See all my reviews

Cause the guys seems more interested in scoring with them ladies than fighting terrorists. But that doesn't take away the fun of the flick. The interaction between Falcon and City Hunter is hilarious, the action is constantly high octane and the fun is fast and hard. Oh, yeah and there are a lot of explosions. Enjoy!
