Goofs

During the fight between Danny and Al-Red (dressed as the Lemonade Clown), both guys end up submerged several times under the water in the fountain (which contained the explosive water) but yet only Al-Red suffers the effects from drinking it either. Danny was unaware of the fountain containing explosive water in it, and was submerged, so in all likeliness Danny should've suffered the same affects as Al-Red and exploded also. See more »

Danny: Nice security, pal.

It Had An Oddly Forced Feel To It
26 September 2014 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

In this flick Pirece "Remington Steele" Brosnan plays a detective who think s he's James Bond and who suffers from sporadic bouts of potty mouth. He has a girl friends with a great pair o' gams who doesn't know much about anything but she looks good which always helps in a movie. I liked PB in RS-even though it was a bit 'conservative'-I thought it worked & I liked that he had a female "sidekick" who was smarter than he was-it showed he was intelligent himself. This film is 'exploitation cinema' as it tries to sell you the idea that it is about catching terrorists when it really isn't about anything. It suggests the idea a tasteless & colorless poison can be added to water to generate a super powerful explosion. Yeh and its called 'Dues ex Machina'-just like in old Roman plays when they ran out of ideas.Might work if you had a lousy date with someone and wanted to erase the memory of it. Combine with booze kind of thing-other than that its basically a dud that bare passes on the high number of camera movements it uses.
