Not quite as dreadful as it first seems.
11 October 2000 | by (Amsterdam) – See all my reviews

The first few scenes make this look like a true recipe for disaster. Something like Tony Danza getting stuck in a sub-par John Woo movie (picture it...), with a seemingly stupid and predictable plot to go with it. But stick with the movie, and it becomes decent enough later on. The fighting and shooting scenes are very hard-hitting (one for the violence fans, then), and there's some clever enough camerawork in there. Even the plot turns out to be a little less hopeless than you first thought. Don't expect too much from this, but there's some decent enough beefy and violent entertainment to be found if you can look past the bad first impression this leaves.
