Dated but a very fun action packed movie back when Mel Gibson was the king of movies before his downfall. Goldie Hawn is alot of fun too and David Carradine and Bill Duke play excellent bad guys. Glad I watched it again!

It definitely has its funny moments. If you read the chapter titles on this disc, they're even more funny. The bickering dialogue is funny and the action sequences are great. Worth looking into!
