The film was originally much harder, and featured greater violence and language, but Miramax cut the film down by five minutes to make it safer and more appealing to the general movie going audience. See more »

Christopher Lambert and Mario Van Peebles star in this run of the mill action tale of a drug dealers lost millions stowed away on a boat. This leads to the unlikely teaming of a small time crook and an undercover DEA Agent in a race against the sadistic bad guy Dennis Leary.
Van Peebles and Lambert work pretty well as a double act and Leary is over the top but acceptable as the bad guy, but the problem with this movie is that its so predictable. Every action cliché is there and it comes across as an over violent mix of a spaghetti western and romancing the stone. Patrick Stewart pops up as a gangster overlord but his character seems pointless more of a time filler than a significant plot element.
Basically its an OK but nothing special piece of action cinema, the same thing you've seen done better 100 times before 5/10.
