My first introduction to John woo and have been a fan ever since
Awesome 90s action! Love Slater and Travolta in this. Somebody ordered extra cheeeese.
Such a good 90's movie. Still holds up today as well which cannot be said about most 90's movies.
A simple, over the top 90s action flick filled with great John Woo setpieces & Zimmer’s action score. Worth it for Travolta’s scene chewing.
Travolta plays a good villain in this John Woo actioner.
Entertaining, when you need some action.
Full-on thrill ride. Enjoyable if not taken too seriously.
Better than I expected! Travolta’s character is wild and unhinged. Slayer pulls of his part.
very typical hollywood action, intense and exciting till the end.
Forgettable plot amidst forgettable action scenes. At the same time I did not actively hate it.
