A surprisingly good film with excellent performances by its actors (particularly notable are the minor cameos by an Irish nurse and a street bum) and a good, solid plot. Mick Jagger does an excellent job as a bounty hunter and Rene Russo is at her best. Contains some good chase scenes involving a number of quirky military vehicles (Soviet reconnaissance cars and US FAVs) and a number of decent sized gunfights. Satisfying all across the board.
