Critics Reviews

Variety
As high tech, rock hard and souped up as an action film can be.

TV Guide
A triumph of slick direction and lowbrow thrills, marred but not spoiled by a sour aftertaste.

This might be the most exciting and compelling action motion picture ever caught on film. If there was a role that Bruce Willis was born to play, this is it. His believability is the difference between calling this a good action flick and THE...

Great action film!
Willis is ideal as a tough law enforcer who saves the day. Don't let anything else distract you: you won't want to miss a second of the fast-paced action.
