Antagony & Ecstasy

It's a very problematic movie, no doubt, but it's frequently the biggest problems that are the most interesting things to study.

Strictly for viewers who don't want surprises, just a laundry list of buddyisms.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Delivers the goods for action fans and has some very funny moments -- but there's the nagging sense that it could have been better.

The movie has a lot of laughs, its action sequences are thrilling, its surprises are startling, and it shows a real ingenuity in the ways by which it gets Willis into, and out of, trouble.
