Above Average Due To Good Pairing Of Piper And Blanks.
29 February 2000 | by (Robinson, IL) – See all my reviews

This is a good movie. Not as good as BACK IN ACTION, but pretty good none the less. There is a good amount of action to keep fans happy. The movie also benefits from how well Piper and Blanks work off each other. Richard Norton is underused though. He should have been the main villain.
