In Humphrey Bogart's style,Burt Reynolds interprets a cinic anti-hero.
5 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

In Humphrey Bogart's style,Burt Reynolds interprets a cinic and malevolent anti-hero.His screen presence helps to elevate the film's landing-place,differing it from the genre's vulgarity.The movie's plot is sufficient simple,and the characters are built in a mediocre way.However,director Russel Solberg bets on the action scenes,and he perfected them .The Burt Reynolds' team disastrous mission,at the beginning of the movie,is filled with supercharged shootings and explosions.The film achieves its principal aim,that is to make people have fun,and Burt Reynolds interprets his character in a delicious form.The public ends up wishing that he will escape with the gizmo and have all the money,even knowing that he doesn't worth nothing.Matt Battaglia also strives to offer a hero with credibility,who finds himself tied into the dilemma of running away from the past or facing his deadly rival from the old times.The final shooting,the helicopter crash and the terrorist attempt to the federal building are worthy of prominence.Stu Segall,a producer with tradition on television series,didn't disappoint,and conducted with efficiency a good action movie that,if suffers for its simple and weak plot,gets right in having chosen Burt Reynolds for the leading role and in not saving efforts by doing the action scenes.
