The epic look of the film is sweeping, and time flies by while watching it. Viewers will find themselves caring about what happens to the characters, and maybe shed a few tears along the way.

John Milius has story credit on the film and I can only imagine that his version of the script (or if director Walter Hill had worked on it) the film would have been much stronger. The story is essentially a modern day retelling of Sam Peckinpah's "The Wild Bunch." Walter Hill knows how to stage an good action sequence and this film has plenty of them. Nick Nolte plays a stoic Texas Ranger and Powers Boothe is Mexican drug lord, both of whom are former friends now on opposite sides of the law. Michael Ironside leads a special forces unit caught up in the mix. Maria Conchita Alonso gives a typically poor performance (I'm baffled by how many major films she appeared in) as the love interest for Booth and Nolte, but there are a number of other excellent supporting actors in the film, including Rip Torn, Clancy Brown, William Forsythe and Tiny Lister. There's also a good Jerry Goldsmith score and sharp action photography by cinematographer Matthew F. Leonetti. Walter Hill is one of my favorite low-tech action film directors and this film, even with the weak script, has enough to like about it that it's worth watching for action and/or western fans.

Anthony Hopkins and Anne Bancroft carry on a long term relationship based entirely using there opinions and reviews of books. Even with this limitation it is still some of the best character development set to screen. Bancroft makes the opening play by sending a letter to Hopkins asking him to sell her good cheap books. Hopkins plays a reserved well educated clerk in a second hand book store in postwar London. Bancroft plays outspoken and fairly brash aspiring writer in New York. Hopkins makes selections and Bancroft keeps ordering more books and comments on his selection. The relationship slowly evolves over twenty years leaving there friendship more important than the book crossing the Atlantic.

(nl) wrote: A buddy comedy film that has been done so many times before but the miss match cops work well together on set, We have Jackie Chan with the great action scenes and Chris Tucker for the comedy they make the old script work well that's funny and entertaining and worth watching.
(gb) wrote: Red Letter Media does not knock it out of the park, as they do with much of their comedic material, but it still is a must see for fans. The slap stick is far above average, while the writing is weaker than what I would come to expect, given the resume of Jay, Mike, and Rich etc.Have to admire an indie group that has been faithful to their fan base for as long as RLM has. I look forward to what they have waiting in the future.
