The screenplay was written by morons for morons. If swearing excites you then you may well enjoy it, but for normal people it is tedious. The characterizations were pathetic, but the underlying theme had great potential, A great shame that it was not given to a better team.
Unfortunately Chuck Norris does not have the same charisma as Bruce Willis, Stallone and the other go it alone action heroes. The plot was good, but the film could have been much better with the right actors.
You need to have a reasonably high IQ and some IT knowledge fully to appreciate this film. However, it could have been improved with more detailed explanation of the premise. There are also too many loose ends - what happened to the other hostages? Why was Hugh Jackman allowed to live? Why didn't he tell the authorities about the real "Travolta" ?
The initial ballet scene with Cyd Charisse is some of the most elegant and stylish dancing you will ever see. Jack Buchanan is well worth watching as a great all round actor/singer/dancer. Nanette Fabray is the best of the triplets dancing on their knees. Not to mention Fred Astaire himself.
An overly long and tedious film without an engaging story to hold it together. It has an abrupt ending and misses what would have been the more the interesting part of the story. It does have some visually ambitious crowd scenes and the arrival of the Mustangs provides a highlight.
Basically a cross between Rambo and Tom and Jerry. Can get a bit tedious and a lot of the main character's behaviour makes no sense. Why let realism get in the way if it means you don't have to bother writing a good story and can employ a hundred stunt men instead. Trouble is they all seem to do the same thing.
It was no doubt intended to be very silly and not in any way a believable story, which is fine, but it was completely spoiled by Katharine Hepburn's constant awfully annoying whining voice, which I doubt was intentional.
