You're not so tough, you know that? How many people have you killed? Ten? Twenty?
You talk a lot.
I talk a lot because you don't talk at all. Now, how many?
Including little girls?
I'm not afraid of you. I told Helen you wouldn't be so ugly if you cut your hair.

This is an unpopular movie, and I don't see why it is so. Admittedly, it is unbelievable, but so are James Bond films. There was enough action in this one to keep thriller buffs going all the way through. Costner did a good job portraying a lonely vagabond in a crazy, violent world. Dennis Hopper, as usual, was an effective villain; he kept me laughing all the way with his insane antics, and his stupid henchmen. I have to wonder, however, if the full nude shot of the girl was really the actress I had been watching. With clothes on, she didn't look all that well endowed. Not a bad movie, really.
