In the earlier Clint Eastwood film The Enforcer (1976), like in this movie, Dirty Harry (Eastwood) was also partnered with a rookie cop, but not a young man, like Charlie Sheen, but a woman, Kate Moore, played by Tyne Daly. See more »
When Nick Pulovski (Clint Eastwood) is showing his partner, David Ackerman (Charlie Sheen), his collection of motorcycles, Ackerman says of the one bike that it is "a 1967 Triumph TR6". A Triumph TR6 is a sports car, not a motorbike. See more »
The Australian television version was inconsistently edited for sexual and violent content. The scene between Liesl and Pulovski ends after she explains the purpose of the bullet she wears, yet the full sequence is shown on the video screen later when Ackerman rescues Pulovski. All sequences of 'three bullet death', such as Sarah killing Loco and the "Amateur" shootings of Ackerman and Liesl are reduced to one bullet. The final shooting of Strom is heard but not shown.

There is simply no excuse for how bad this movie is. It would have to rate as one of the worst of all time. It is so bad, in fact, it is almost - but not - laughable. The fact that it has a relatively accomplished cast makes this all the more diappointing. Raul Julia as a German! That's just the start. Clint Eastwood's grip on police reality is completely gone here, and Charlie Sheen is just way out of his depth as a tormented rookie cop. Plus a sex interest that ain't sexy and you wind up with 0. Which is almost what I gave this film. Whatever you do, DO NOT put yourself through the torture of watching this movie - I was begging for the end after 20 mins!
