I think it's fair to say Christopher Lambert has had his fair share of duds in recent years. Started off in a great way in the 80's and then it's been one long slide into obscurity (Highlander 4 anyone?). Mario Van Peebles career path has been pretty similar since 'Heartbreak Ridge' though he seems to have done all right recently appearing in Ali. Anyway ‘Gunmen' co-stars the two the same year they appeared together in Highlander 3. The basic plot of this South American actioner is that Dani Servigo (Lambert) is the only one who knows the name of harbour where a boat with 400 million dollars of drug money onboard is moored. Cole Parker (Van Peebles) is the only one who knows the boat's name. Together they're trying to get there before Loomis (Patrick Stewart), the drug lord the money belongs to and Armor O'Malley, his right hand man (Dennis Leary) who's starting to strain at the leash.

Why am I recommending this film? Well, Sam Raimi said that the success of the Evil Dead films is dependant on how much abuse Bruce Campbell suffers. I think it's the same with this. At one point Van Peebles is tortured for information by being hung below a helicopter and flown through trees and then dunked in a lake. The more they suffer the more you want them to overcome the obstacles in their way. Mind you, Dani and Cole not the nicest of ‘heroes'. Actually they're a couple of complete jerks. They bicker constantly and don't trust each other, stooping so low as to shoot each other in leg so they other can't run off with the money (this being a early 90's action film all this does is give them slight limps, how realistic). What makes it great to watch them is Lambert and Van Peebles aren't afraid to go for it and it's obvious they're bouncing off each other. On top of this we have Leary playing exactly the nasty driven character he's so good at (don't believe me? watch Judgement Night), whether it's shooting his own men or having people buried alive. An interesting fact to note is that this is an early writing effort from Stephen Sommer, who went on to demonstrate his ability with action pictures with such films as Deep Rising and The Mummy.
