Nighthawks, an aggressively shallow police thriller pitting New York undercover cops against international terrorists.

Time Out
January 26, 2006
A terrorist hijacking a cable car, even in New York, is a mildly ludicrous idea -- were no 747s handy? The plot of Nighthawks makes no sense.

Stallone dresses in drag for his first onscreen appearance as a cop. This is one reel bad dude.

Criminally underseen yet solid gold.

Vicious and intense cat-and-mouse cop thriller.

Though there's never much doubt how the duel will end, the climax is nonetheless surprising and totally satisfying, topping the energy of the previous pursuit.

Nighthawks is a compelling movie with plenty of adrenaline-pumping chase sequences.
Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily
January 26, 2006
A taut urban thriller with a hissable villain and an unforgettable ending. One of Stallone's best films.
| Original Score: 3.5/4

One of Stallone's better non-Rocky efforts

One of Stallone's better efforts. Besides, where else can one find the screen being shared by the who's-who gallery of Rocky Balboa, Lando Calrissian, Roy Batty, the Bionic Woman, and the bald lady from the first Star Trek film?

All of it is standard stuff, and yet Nighthawks has been assembled with enough pep to make it feel fresh.

While the plotting is familiar (especially after countless imitations), competent scripting, direction and acting make this above average entertainment.

TV Guide
July 25, 2010
This very effective thriller features a chilling performance by Hauer as the emotionless killing machine. Stallone and Williams are also credible, and the film makes good use of its New York locations.
