Mr. ShowbizCarmel Dagan
This brash, clever picture caught the attention of audiences after years of moribund product from the likes of Schwarzenegger and Stallone.

The result is a foot-stomping rouser. Where else can you get a cop in his underwear boogalooing with skyscraper terrorists? [15 July 1988, Life, p.4D]
75
Slick, glossy, overblown, implausible. [15 July 1988, Daily Notebook, p.E1]
75
Has everything but a personality. [15 July 1988, Friday, p.A]
70
Has to be the most excessive film around. It piles every known element of the action genre onto the flimsy story. [15 July 1988]
