Thelma (Cherry Pie Picache), together with her husband Dado (Dan Alvaro) and teenage sons Gerald (Alwyn Uytingco) and Yuri (Jiro Manio), are a poor urban family hired by a local foster care facility to provide temporary home and care to abandoned babies pending the latter's formal adoption. The inevitable separation is heart-rending for the foster family. Thelma's current foster child John-John (Kier Segismundo) is to be turned over to his adoptive American parents. Every moment with the 3-year-old John-John becomes more precious as Thelma goes through the day fulfilling her motherly duties for the last time—bathing John-John, feeding him, and bringing him to school where the boy participates in a school presentation.

A lot of buts in this movie, huh-huh-huh. Speaking of which, Mitchum basically spends five minutes feeling up Monroe's legs in this movie. For a moment it gets interesting, kind of, sort of, not really.

First, if Action Jackson had been made 15 years earlier, it would have been a completely different movie, but I did love the unmistakable 80s action flavor. Second, I feel like there was some kind of accounting error in a film studio. I think every supporting character in Die Hard and Predator was paid for an extra movie, so someone had the bright idea of putting them all together in a movie just to even things out. They just had to add Coach and a couple more woman, then boom, movie. Really liked Carl Weathers though.

Niels S (mx) wrote: En af Roland Emmerichs tidlige film med et kikset team fra Hollywoods B-hold. Emmerich har sidenhen lavet bedre film, men det har van Damme og Lundgren ikke, s hvis man er til hjernedd action med de to herrer, er filmen vel lige p samme niveau som deres vrige gylle - omend yderst klodset drejet.
