All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

The wisecracks and the swaggering are as unrelieved as the film's almost comically ecstatic gunplay. Someone must have figured audiences like things this way.

Goldberg's best work since The Color Purple.

Bloody, boring and pandering, is as poisonous as the drug trade it pretends to defame.

Tom Holland directed from a script and story credited to three individuals, anyone could have knocked this one out during coffee break.

Whoopi Goldberg is at her sassy, funny best in this upbeat 1987 cop caper, playing a Los Angeles detective who takes no nonsense and is ready for anything the badass guys can dish out
