Critic Reviews for Live Wire

All Critics (5)

Com sua cena de sexo cafona, seus diálogos patéticos, seus efeitos trash e seu roteiro absurdo, quase acaba servindo como diversão involuntária. Quase.

Man, the Bond films came just in time to rescue Brosnan from swill like this.

Audience Reviews for Live Wire


It's one of those movies in which an absolutely ludicrous "ultimate weapon" is developed and used, and since the thing's existence is outright impossible, nobody in the movie is able to explain to the viewer how it works. They just say something like "it's a combination of nitro and napalm and...anyway, it's complicated." Yeah, you know the type. A ten-year-old kid could have come up with the story. The thing is, I expect more from adult writers who should know better than this.
