1.0 out of 5 stars Errors of comedy 4 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
A film which is as American as pear pie, absolutely perfect watching for Thanksgiving - they shoot turkeys don't they? The basic theme of this film is that if you have a decent budget but no script, take a hackneyed thriller, genetically re-engineer it into a comedy (in places nearly as funny as some of Shakespeare's best comic lines - nay, tarry not good fool lest thou be curmudgeoned by the brevity of my wit), and, when the plot runs thin, pad it out with interminable car chases and gun fights with inexhaustible ammunition supplies and casualties which remind you of a Tom and Jerry (or Itchy and Scratchy) cartoon.

In brief, a gang of black crooks get into a shooting war with a gang of Italian crooks - not that either gang or any gang member could be described as a cliché or as sterile cardboard cut-outs. The dispute centres on ownership of a million dollars in diamonds (or several million, who knows). Said diamonds fall into the grasp of a burger cook and waitress in a wayside café. The chase is on.

Funny? It's not. I think this was meant to be a comedy. It was probably tailored as a comedy when they realised that they didn't have an adequate script or competent enough actors to carry off anything with a hint of drama in it. The acting is more wooden and less animated than a matchstick model of a rainforest. Teri Ann Linn, who plays the short skirted waitress, is the only one to rise above mediocrity, but then, she's quite tall and has long legs, and long legs prove a lot more interesting than a flat, lifeless script.

Towards the end of the film there is some attempt to introduce drama, or at least pathos. It fails lamentably - imagine trying to graft two minutes of Ibsen onto the end of a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bad action movie! =D 18 Dec 2013
By Francisco Cortes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
MAN! This movie is so terrible but very entertaining at the same time.

The acting was pretty lame, the story is full of cliches, and the "shootouts" scenes were badly edited. There are like 3 action scenes in particular, the first two were "shootouts" and the final action scene is a long car chase.

As for the positive aspects: The car chase scene was SPECTACULAR! This movie has one of the best car chases ever since The Master Touch or Bullit. Even when the rest of the movie is sooo messed up the car chase is what makes this film so valuable. I also didn't liked the ending but at least it was unpredictable.

If you wanna laugh out loud with a stupid action movie or just watch a SUPERB car chase then this movie is definitively for you! Now, if you want a great crime action movie then you better search somewhere else.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great...If you liked Naked Gun, but with ATTITUDE!!!! 21 Oct 2003
By One World - Published on Amazon.com
Directed by C. Thomas Howell. Unfortunately this movie will disappoint you if you watch it with the expectation the trailer's convey. The previews show this movie as an intense action packed movie, but what you actually get is something like the Naked Gun trio but with lots of attitude and intensity.

The comedy element overpowers the intensity thus this movie does not even come off like the Lethal Weapon movie which injected comedy into it's drama/suspence/action. Again this comes off like Naked Gun with attitude. Better described: Naked Gun meets Lethal Weapon. With that in mind, you should find this a good buy/rent if you keep those things in mind.

Had chases but not spectacular.

Only one was good because four cars were wrecked in the chase.

3.0 out of 5 stars teri ann linn and leon a joy to watch. marcus chong too. 5 July 2000
By r r - Published on Amazon.com
a campy movie that tries to be stylish and action-packed. the gangster theme sours the whole project. now, exactly why does becky (teri ann linn) decide she likes johnie (c.t. howell)? just because he took the fall for his pals? it would take monumental acting to make this scene believable! at least we get to see some of this pretty-eyed beauty, and in tastefully semi-nude scenes, too! it's a decent effort, like a good made-for-tv movie. teri ann linn should make more movies cause she looks great in a close-up, her voice is honestly appealing, and she moves with a modern grace. leon is excellent to watch, too.
