The previous picture of Clint Eastwood, White Hunter Black Heart (1990), was entered into competition at the Cannes Film Festival in 1990 and screened there whilst The Rookie (1990) was in production. To attend that movie's Cannes screenings, Eastwood halted production on The Rookie (1990) for five days. Reportedly, this cost an estimated 1.5 million dollars. See more »

Humdrum, cliched actioner offers nothing we haven't seen before. If Eastwood (who has a unique presence, even in this mediocre role) wasn't around, it would be almost unwatchable. But the moral "lessons" of the film are even more annoying than its cliches: it seems to suggest that a "boy" becomes a "real MAN" only when he learns how to punch and kill people.
