Despite this movie being an obvious rip-off of "Die Hard", I wouldn't have
minded seeing this same story again had it been written and executed with
relative competence. But overall it's not. The things that happen here are
so implausible (shootouts where everyone keeps missing despite it being VERY
OBVIOUS that there's no way they could survive, as well as extremely stupid
decisions by both the hero and villain) that it becomes quite annoying -
quite soon you get annoyed at the gall the filmmakers had for not even
TRYING to place one foot in reality. It seems they just had all these stupid
things happening so that the movie would last 90 or so
Also, the low budget of the movie is quite obvious at times. Now, I've seen
action movies with similarly low budgets that managed to stretch their few
dollars out for the entire movie. This time around they do manage to
overcome the low budget in several aspects (the cinematography, for one),
but every few minutes we see something that smacks of cheapness - a crowd of
protesters consisting of just a few people (and all holding signs with exact
same style of writing on them), hotel hallways that don't look like the
hallways of a high class hotel, a goofy-looking flame thrower that is
supposedly shooting long flames (but is obviously not in each shot),
The cast is wasted. Ice-T is given prominent billing, but only appears for
the first 20 minutes. Madsen has nothing to do but bark orders. Roberts
appears in almost every scene, but with the material he's given, the movie
ends up being another waste of his talents.
It's not all bad. There are a few hand-to-hand fight sequences that, despite
not having the speed and flow of Hong Kong movies, have excitement and high
power to them. (And are quite brutal.) And a hilarious blooper reel runs
during the end credits.
