Now I know what you’re thinking, “why is Bishop reviewing a movie made in 1992?” The answer? I got bored one day and was able to catch it before it was taken off Netflix Instant. Now, first off, I want to say how sad it is that it took me so long to watch this classic American film.
To say this is an action movie would be a lie. This is more like an action thriller, heavy on the thrill and light on the action. Don’t get me wrong, there is action, but it is in spurts. This is not a bad thing, though. The dialogue and plot run smoothly and you can’t help but gawk at the brilliant scenes.
The scene where a man is brutally assaulted while “Stuck in the Middle with You” plays on the radio. The scene is sick, demented and you just sit in awe as the events unfold. This is but one of the many scenes that will probably be remembered from this movie.
Overall, the acting and the plot work very well with the movie being simple enough to almost everyone capable of watching it is able to follow. The movie is and always will be a classic. If you haven’t seen it yet, watch it with any chance that you get. I give this a 9 out of 10.
