Did You Know?
The brief dance done by Eclipse when he scores the touchdown during the football game resembles the "Ickey Shuffle" made famous by Elbert "Ickey" Woods who played fullback for the Cincinnati Bengals in the late 1980s.
The front glass on Leone's windshield gets broken twice after it reappears.
Emotional with great performances
Sly Stallone hit gold with this seriously under rated film. This is surely
Stallone's best films with Cliffhanger and Demolitian Man
There are superb performances from the main man and his supporting
characters like Donald Sutherland(the assignment), Tom Sizemore(enemy of the
state), John Amos, Sonny Landham(predator) and Danny Trejo(desperado).
The story is gritty and involving, and the best scene is Sizemore's last
bid for Stallone's friendship. Watch it and you'll know what I
This a great film. Do not miss it. Rating=4/5
