Jonas says, "As it says in the Bible the enemy of my enemy is my friend." Unsurprising for this kind of a movie he doesn't know what he's talking about, since it occurs nowhere in the Bible, being rather an old proverb mentioned at wikipedia's "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." See more »
As a lover of action movies, this one took me by surprise, both because of how much I enjoyed it (which is hard to say these days) and because of how atypical it is for the genre. It is really like Laurel and Hardy do action... Funny, funny, funny! John Ritter is great as the guy who thinks he can do all the stunts, just cause he wants to go along for the ride, and Mr. Gruner is a powerful force, with a hint of the comedian hiding beneath his straight man. Great effort by Nesher, the director, who moves this great story with sheer force from the first frame... A must rent!
