Has a good enough time making fun of itself until things get flatly absurd... That's when Arnold takes his sweet montage-time securing a cache of weapons in a suitcase with all the right velcro straps, and then kills everyone with unflappable machine gun skills, shooting one-handed from a convertible. (Every mob guy is slower on the draw than a Quaker.) At the end, Arnold plays Bogart to Kathryn Harrold's ex-moll elegance. At the start, Irwin films a great jeep-vs-cycle chase and primes us to be scared of Victor Argo -- but I can't even remember how he left the plot. Plot? Who cares? This movie is supposed to be about action, humor and romance... In case you're wondering, Arnold stays faithful to his Darren McGavin.

This really is a horribly made movie, it probably has some of the biggest technical issue of a major motion picture. That being said, it's just a lot of fun and classic Arnold. He has so many great moments and testosterone fueled actions, proving that he one of the greatest action stars to ever live. The storyline is overdone so much and made so honest, but you can't help liking it on at least a sarcastic level.

One of Arnies weaker films I think, still cool and always good action scenes but just not that many. The whole thing just survives purely because Arnie is in it.

One of Arnie's worst films in my opinion, not very good at all.

You will be appeased by all the action, but disgusted by all the blood. Yet this film's storyline keeps you intuned.

I feel like I've watched the vast majority of good Arnie films already. The rare ones I am getting now tend to disappoint me. This film was really nothing special. The plot was super boring. The characters not that interesting, even Arnie's one. However the action was not too bad. There were plenty of fist fights, as well as a few gunfights. But they were not as abundant as I hoped they'd be.
This movie is pretty average. Good for one time watching only.

Typical 80's Arnie movie with lots of shots fired and wannabe gangsters. Not bad but always found some of his other flicks more entertaining.

By far the worst Arnold movie I've seen. "Commando" is at least 10 times better than this snooze-fest.

"So, you wanna be a witness? Witness this!"

Classic Arnold : )

I wasn't expecting much from this flick, since I knew little to nothing about it; but I did have some fun watching it (unlike Red Heat). Think "Commando," but within an underground criminal organization. A film with Schwarzenegger driving around shooting people while listening to the Rolling Stones has a certain target audience, and it delivers. (It also doesn't hurt to have Paul Shenar and Robert Davi for die hard 80s fans.)

Raw movie. It is one of those early action films that is known to make humor. It is not one of Schwarzenegger's best, but it is enought ot keep some attention.

One of Arnold first films so i really cant hate the bad...bad..awful acting that is throughtout the entire movie. It still have some good scenes for you to enjoy if you love shoot-em up cop movies. Just know you have been warned.

I like action movies, particularly Schwarzenegger. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood. This seemed boring and stiff.

A great and underrated Arnold Schwarzenegger film. He plays a cop who goes undercover to infiltrate the mob. A great action film with style, this 1986 film is so cool.

2 stars is more than this movie deserves, but it has Arnold in it, and that's a reason to give any movie an extra star. By-the-numbers action flick will quickly fade from your memory as there is nothing particularly memorable, aside from the fact that the movie seems to have been made with out any feeling or care.
