In 1990 Clint Eastwood was obviously more comfortable making films where he gets to shoot people rather than elephants, so it was no surprise, after the failure of 'White Hunter, Black Heart', to find him regressing to yet another formula variation of Dirty You-Know-Who. The plot has only been recycled ninety times before, but the familiar terrain was doubt reassuring to Eastwood fans, for whom character and credibility aren't as important as the number of cars that can be smashed together. Quite a few are totaled in the spectacular opening chase, but after that the film settles into a routine cops-and-robbers caper, with nothing too surprising about it except the revelation that villain Raul Julia and his nympho-psycho-killer girlfriend Sonia Braga are meant to be German. Even the title is misleading, since rookie Charlie Sheen is already a junior vigilante to begin with, and he learns nothing new from his veteran partner except the reckless behavior of a true Hollywood cop.
