Right from the beginning, you are thrown into a situation which typifies the entire movie: fun. Real fun - the way action movies are supposed to be, with great one liners (many silly ones that the block buster crowd cannot stand). Compared to the typical blockbuster crap fest, this is like an Oscar contender. Dennis Hopper is excellent, the slew of bad guy characters who never cease to entertain is amazing. If you are a fan of quirky comedy mixed with action with absolutely no regard for conventional movies then this movie is for you. However, if you like the big budget crap and think that silly humor is 'corny' then stay away. Clearly not intended for eyeball rolling tasteless viewers. Peter Coyote delivers one of the best lines in this movie - watch out for it..In fact there are funny lines by all the bad guy characters as well - The love angle between Weller and Carrere is mercilessly short giving more time for the bad guys to do their fun routines.
Watch this movie - its one action movie you would not just enjoy - it would make you happy..
