It stars Bruce Willis (one of our favorites), Bruce Dern, William Sanderson (a Memphis native who was also in Blade Runner and 2 Babylon 5 episodes -Grail and Thirdspace among other films) and Christopher Walken.
Empire Online gives it 3 out of 5 stars and concludes, "The film's real strength is the way it sounds, with Ry Cooder's jangling score competing with thunderous gunplay for the shell-like's appreciative attention." Rolling Stone says, "Nice going, guys, but it's been done." EW gives it a grade of "D" and calls it a "numskull, overwrought shoot-'em-up". DVD Talk says it's "overly grim" and feels "flat". Roger Ebert despises it, giving it 1 star, and calls it "a mannered, juiceless, excruciatingly repetitive exercise in style." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics rating of 37%, but the audience rating is much higher.
I've decided that most film critics don't know fun when it's staring them in the face.
