Fast-paced stylish thriller
16 March 1999 | by (Victoria B.C.) – See all my reviews

This is one of those plots where the good guy finds the mob money, and the bad guys try to get it back. O.K. it's a formula movie, but one that I found thoroughly entertaining for two hours. I was puzzled by the star billing of Scott Glenn in the credits, since McCarthy is the hero. I didn't mind, since Glenn is one of my favourite tough guys. Nor was I disappointed, since he and John Glover form a team satisfyingly tough,merciless, and competent. Usually a "chase" film lasts as long as two hours because of the bad guys ineptness: not so in this movie - hero and villains are well matched; the latter pros demonstrate their competence by being always one step ahead of their amateur quarry, the playing field is levelled by his resourcefulness, guts, their bad luck, and his youth (in one sequence, the McCarthy character simply outruns the pursuing Glenn, through a crowd). Also hampering them is the fact that the villains have to operate in a law-abiding environment - more than once, Glenn is forced to quit the chase because of onlookers. Yes, it's a fair, fast-paced fight, and I admired all three protagonists.The McCarthy character evolves through his reaction to the various threats to him and his girl-friend, while the villains are well served by a non-formula script, and the smooth, humorous ruthlessness of Glenn and Glover.
