Trivia

Initally, the movie ran for 95 minutes, but after re-edits and re-shoots, the picture came in at 91 minutes. After negative test screenings, Warner Bros. cut some scenes and re-shot others. In the original version Rush Hour star Elizabeth Pena played Max's ex-girlfriend, hence her name on the film's 1-sheet poster. Cindy Crawford and William Baldwin also shot additional scenes to help boost the relationship between the two characters. Crawford shot additional scenes on her own to help develop her character. The extra filming/additions and re-edit caused the film to be delayed by three months. See more »

Pain has a new name: Fair Game
11 December 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is bad, very bad. It must have sounded like a good idea at the time: "Die Hard With Legal Mumbo-Jumbo" with a twist: we'll have a sexy model as the star.

Erm, it sounds good on paper, and perhaps it would have been a good idea if they hadn't screwed the damn thing up by giving us a weak script, even weaker plot, weaker villians and then give up on the sexy model as John McClane and turn her into a damsel in distress.

It almost feels like Producer, Joel Silver is satirizing or parodying himself in the constant need for set-piece action after set-piece action strung together on the weakest thing to ever grace the screen.

Everything that hits something explodes, cars hit telegraph poles and explode violently, tree's that are in the way explode even more violently...its almost too much to take in. I know action is what was driving hollywood around the early 90s - but this is just TOO much.

Anyway, the film pretty much nose-dives when Crawford - who looks stunning - turns into a damsel in distress with Baldwin acting like he's painting by numbers - just doing the thing because either Stallone dropped out or because of the money.

Not even the "sex-scenes" can save this terrible affair. Not even Berkov, now type-cast as Russian bad guys, can save it. Everything hurts...everything. The end explosion looks kinda cool, but it can't mask the fact that this film is flimsy at best - and at worst? Well, I just don't wanna think about that.

They could have made it a lot better than this trash. A die-hard with a woman as the hero could have been done a lot better. Its a shame with the buckloads of money they wasted on this trash seems to have gone onto Crawford's make-up.

My Rating: 0/10
