Goofs

After Eddie shoots the deadbolt lock (which wouldn't have opened the lock anyway) in the back door of the room where the incubator was located, the door is opened to reveal there is no strike plate or even a hole in the door frame to accept the bolt. The deadbolt could not have been locked. The strike plate for the doorknob is visible, but there should have been another one above it. See more »

Back to the 80's
4 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

This film is just plain weird, but then again most TV movies of the 80's were (for the record, this was done in 1989, not 1991). It's almost like Lethal Weapon meets Miami Vice.

From the opening shootout/chase sequence in Hollywood (gotta love how they run over a Beverly Hills sign in the hood), you know you're going to see something strange. The two cops look EXACTLY like Riggs and Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon! Add to it the Jan Hammer soundtrack (he did Miami Vice too) and a script by writer/producer Steven de Souza (Commando, Running Man, Die Hard) and you have the quintessential 80's crime flick.

There are some elements of comedy, but those tend to be overshadowed by the somewhat violent content (for TV standards 20yrs ago). For the most part, this is almost a cult film.

While out of print on VHS and DVD, you can catch it on TV or Pay Cable (it was on Encore the other day) and worth a watch, just for nostalgia purposes.
