In Users Reviews an extract from a review titled, Director Rush Goes Down with the Ship, with a 2/10 rating, is as follows: "Rush began his career as a director with low budget exploitation films like 'To Soon to Love' in 1960, and ten films later achieved legitimate status with highly successful black comedy, 'The Stunt Man' in 1980, for which he received an Oscar nomination (along with his leading man, Peter O'Toole). He did direct again until this film, some fourteen years later, and during that hiatus, Rush apparently lost whatever expertise he had accrued by 1980, and his 'roots' are clearly showing in this one. The violence of the film is inherent in the story, but Rush makes it unnecessarily graphic; and while this could have been an incisive and insightful character study (and instrically more interesting), he takes the low road, fleshing it out with scenes of gratuitous sex and nudity, as well as superfluous action (he works in no less than two ridiculous car chases, one culminating in a vehicle being pushed from the top of a high rise parking garage). Furthermore, he ignores motivations and character development almost entirely; the two areas that required the most attention if this film was going to work at all". See more »

Suspense, Mystery, Sex, and Violence, what more can you ask for?
This is a favorite movie of my wife and I. It stands up to our toughest test, i.e., it stands up to repeated viewing and seems better each time we watch it. Some object to the sex and violence but `get a life' it's just a movie,(as Lt. Hector Martinez (Ruben Blades)) would say `you Daffodils!'
