As a 90s kid I've always been aware of this flick but never watched, until it showed up on Hulu. Glad I finally watched because it was definitely entertaining. Loved seeing Patrick amd Keanu in one of their most famous roles. I enjoyed the play on undercover agent infiltrating a subculture not to often heard from. It's not Broadway nor is it MARVEL superheroes, but it's quality entertainment worth watching more than once.
On another note, it was AWESOME seeing the lead singer of one of my all time favorite bands in this; even though he does something quite hilarious!
