Reviews Of Movie:
Carl Weathers gets a chance to play an action-heroine in this fun action film of the 80s. There are plenty of fistfights as well as car crashes, explosions and more action in this movie and I felt Weathers was very good in the film. The scene where he flies past the cab and climbs on top of it was pretty dumb however it was still enjoyable. Craig T. Nelson does well as the villain. There are many famous faces to be seen in this movie such as Sharon Stone, Bill Duke, Ed O’Ross, Sonny Landham and many others. All in all, a highly recommended film, but not the greatest action movie of the 1980s, nevertheless, it’s a good one.
