User Review

Emotional with great performances

Rating:

Sly Stallone hit gold with this seriously under rated film. This is surely
Stallone's best films with Cliffhanger and Demolitian Man
following.

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
mean.

This a great film. Do not miss it. Rating=4/5
