So bad it is worth watching
21 July 2011 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Okay, this is one of those 'tick the box' films. Evil terrorist, shady mid eastern organisations, "hot shot" FBI agent playing by his own rules, son who is moody and listening to bad metal music because dad is never around, black police chief. I could go on ... and I will - loads of opportunities for set up fights, where just shooting someone would've been much more logical, oh too obvious plot introductions that set the scene for "a-ha" moments later, the loose cannon cop sacked from "the feds" and takes up bareknuckle boxing "somewhere near Arizona (or wherever"), evil dudes called "carlos" and "el tigre". Yep, it is just that bad. Who funds these things????? But really funny and worth it for the 1980s kitsch.
