When Joe comes home from Las Vegas he notices very small details such as his wife's hair is dry and the toilet seat is up, but he didn't notice Mike's car parked across the street. Further. Detective McKaskey (Clarence Felder) told the other detective, "witnesses reported seeing Mike's car across the street the night before", to which the other detective replied, "why did he (Joe Hallenbeck) lie?". So if neighbors who aren't even detectives noticed the car, why didn't Joe? And how would they know what kind of car Mike drove or who he was? If it had been in the driveway then they might know that it was neither Joe's nor his wife's car. See more »

Great movie excellently interpreted by Bruce Willis who personifies magnificently the archetypes of the excellent antihero. By means of a marvelous and elegant script, the action develops to pace of video - paper clip, with a perfect aesthetics, action to streams and a sense of the sarcastic, intelligent and brilliant humor. The prominent figures are worn out, leaving each one his personal stamp in the film; as curiosity, the exuberant appears Halle Berry in one of her first appearances on the great screen. We are before an impact ante and entertaining movie, which it(he,she) seems to improve with the years, turning practically into the classic one of the cinema of action.
