I feel conflicted about this. On one hand, Walter Hill has created a visually rich and musically engaging old-school(though not at the time) action flick. Nolte and Murphy gave incredible chemistry and SF is treated as third star.

It is certainly a product of it's time, and that in itself is fascinating, but it has certainly not aged well. What was once risquà (C) now comes off as being simply mean-spirited.
