Production wrapped in New York at 6 am on 31st July 1990 and hours later the cast and crew boarded a plane to begin the second leg of their international odyssey. After one day of preparation, filming resumed, this time in the eternal city of Rome in Italy, directly across the street from one of the most impressive and recognizable wonders of the world, the famed landmark the Coliseum. Many famous locations throughout Rome and its environs were used for the picture, including the Piazza Navona, the Roman Forum, and the 16th Century Villa Farnese in nearby Caprarola, a vintage town and commune in the Viterbo province in the Lazio region of central Italy.

This movie was on my list of movies generated by actors as personal projects. That's because you really get to know these guys when you see what they really want to do. Bruce worked on this for a very long time.
If you check out Willis' acting stuff, it is a particular style, very much like Mel Gibson's. The idea is to focus on the character in a serious way, but always let the audience know that there is a carefree guy doing it. The formula is subtle and depends on the genuine take on life that the actor has.
If you allow for the incompetent editing and execrable score, this is a very clever movie. In particular, it is a very clever placement of a movie about other movies. It walks through the various motions of a real movie, with lots of references to remind you. But it is really a bunch of jokes that make the broadest fun of movies. The position and distance that this film has to real movies is precisely the same as Bruce's acting stance to the job he does in portraying the character.
Check it out. It's got some problems, but it tells you a lot about Bruce in whatever of his other films you like, and will likely enhance that film.
