In this film he also gets to show some acting ability and probably outshines the aging Van Damme.. Still a JCVD fan, and always will be, but Adkins is the real star of this film!

Jed D (mx) wrote: The kind of comedy where you can't help but take on the hysteria and anguish of the main characters. Surprisingly, John Cleese, is the star of this film. His "Bad Girl" scene was just "tear-jerking", hilarious.

Andy C (de) wrote: I liked the premise in this movie and for once the filmmakers are more concerned about the two characters rather than the thriller-aspect to the story. Unfortunately it's that aspect to the film that makes the thriller story weak and uninvolving.
M A (gb) wrote: Better than you've heard indeed. Although loaded with your typical and somewhat pathetic 1980's comedic stereotypes, Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman are a surprisingly good coupling. The two seem to be off script and riffing off each other much off the time and the result is quite a few extemporaneous and very funny sequences. These moments are what really make the movie...let go of your grandiose expectations and enjoy!

Stephen J (kr) wrote: The potential in this film is outstanding, but Reynolds misses a great opportunity. So much grim, so little redemption. One reviewer called it an "awful urban angst piece." It's the worst elements of Substitute, Boyz N the Hood, and Freedom Writers blended into one dismal mix of hopelessness. Reynolds wants us to believe the ends justify the means, but the end of the movie couldn't come quickly enough.
