This film is not too bad, but the most annoying things about it are:
Mickey Rourke's makeup and wardrobe. His stupid Fu Manchu mustache is so out-of-place. His big, floppy hat, along with it, doesn't help, and at times, he's dressed in way too many layers of clothes for the hot, summer plains...which makes him appear heavy, uncomfortable, and ridiculous.
Secondly, the final scene is WAY too short, truncated, and unbelievable.....it's almost laughable, especially after the way the scenes before it were so action-packed.
Still, Rourke and Mulroney are good in their roles and fun to watch. Let's face it....Rourke is the quintessential bad guy!
