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

So-so Whoopi comedy-thriller. There are worse things and she's made some of them.

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.

Whoopi's a cool lady, but she's done a lot of stunningly awful movies. This is (easily) one of the worst.

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.
