STALLONE VS RUTGER...1981 STYLE,
This review is from: Nighthawks [DVD] (DVD)
Nighthawks (1981) [DVD]
Nighthawks is now a largely forgotten movie from relatively early in Sylvester Stallones career-before he became Rambo and trapped by Rocky's image.
It tells the story of a Terrorist in exile Wulf-Rutger Hauer(post soldier of orange, pre blade runner), and Deke (Stallone)hunting him down in New York.
Although in some respects dated-the disco scene for instance, the movie is a great thriller-Hauer proving again what a great villain he is and Stallone excelling as Deke-driven thru various plot devices to become a great anti-terroist policeman.
Ably supported by Billy Dee Williams(Lando Calrissen), Nigel Davenport, and lindsay wagner.
A bargain and great night in...
