better from murphy
on 8 February 2007
released in 1997 when eddie murphy was making more poor movies than good,metro is a film that shines just that bit brighter despite being unoriginal on many levels and trying to recreate some beverly hills cop moments as well,metro is a stylish enough movie and murphy is comfortable playing a hostage negotiator who has revenge on his mind when his partner is killed by a jewel thief.
The film suffers from the odd cliche and the love interest story which is everywhere in films like this is a tad over the top but when it comes to the action and the chases and the classic formula stuff then this film doesnt have to hide in the shadows from the classics,all in all ,metro is a solid film that wont force you to burn your die hard films or anything like that but retains its interest levels for the most part.
