Probably John Woo's finest film

Having seen Hard Target I had quite high expectations of this film and it did not quite live up to what I was expecting, but this is still a solid action movie nonetheless. John Travolta plays a creepy and violent fighter pilot intent on stealing a nuclear bomb, but enough about the silly plot. Lets just say it feels good when he finally gets killed. There is a girl who plays a park ranger who gets sucked into the chaotic events and she's OK but there are no sex scenes. The special effects are dated and unusual rather than impressive, but overall this is a well paced film with never a boring moment.

Disappointing by John Woo standards, but solid by US action film standards

Hong Kong action maestro John Woo's most bland of American action films. It's not a bad action flick and is actually better than most, but it's a pretty dull script about corrupt US military man John Travolta trying to steal a nuclear warhead and his subordinate, Christian Slater, trying to stop him with the help of a plucky park ranger, Samantha Mathis, which make me want to consider this film a sequel to "Pump Up the Volume." The action is decent and there are Woo trademarks like two gun, Mexican standoffs, enemies back-to-back on opposite sides of a wall, etc. but it feels like he's just going through the motions. The studio supposedly heavily re-cut the film and maybe there exists a director's cut that's much better. Disappointing for a John Woo film, but satisfying enough by Hollywood action film standards.

Talk about action-packed! But it's sub-par

Really quickly, first of all, Travolta's signature move in this couple of action movies he made in a short amount of time (this one and Face/Off), is dying at the end by a weapon to his stomach. Now, this movie's entertaining from start to finish and my only problem, besides all of the unrealistic action, of course, is when Hale tells Colonel Wilkins that Deke is doing a rope-a-dope. Wilkins looks lost and goes, "A what?" Hale explains what that is and Wilkins interrupts with, "Yes, I know what the rope-a-dope is--what's your point?" lol Well, he just implied that he DIDN'T... Also, well before that part, why would Hale tell Deke about another crafty move he's thought of about taking the second bomb down below to be buried under tons of rock? Keep it to yourself, you idiot! I like how he shows his opponent his cards and then tells his teammate, Carmichael, that they have to hurry because the opponent's now on his way even faster than before to unleash hell.
