"Thomas Ian Griffith plays super-action tough guy who also seconds as comedian and thirds as hopeless romantic in the hillarious action-thriller. Tia Carrere, Donald Sutherland, and John Lithgow are all magnificent supporting casts. Not sure if this ever made the big screen but it should have. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes high-action flicks with excellent plots. It's one of my favorite movies...even my wife loved it!"
THE HUMOR HELPS

"HOLLOW POINT is a pretty routine action shoot em up, but it's keen sense of humor and its sharp performances elevate it to a much better than average thriller. Tia Carrere and Thomas Ian Griffith play sparring government adversaries out to stop a nefarious money launderer. Their romantic battling is reminiscent of MOONLIGHTING although a little more physical. Carrere uses her stunning beauty quite well and Griffith is very funny as an egotistical morphine popping agent. But the real stars of the film are veterans John Lithgow as the aforesaid villain and Donald Sutherland, just having a grand old time as a morally conscious assassin. Veteran director Sidney J Furie keeps the action moving with a funny climax with our four stars all pointing guns at each other. Not a classic but good entertainment."
Good brainless fun

""Hollow Point" is an surprisingly successful mix of action and comedy. The story is nothing special but there's plenty of action scenes and manyy funny scenes, and it's also helped by a good cast. Thomas Ian Griffith and Tia Carrere make a good team and John Lithgow a good villain, but Donald Sutherland really steals the show as a hitman. This is a perfect movie to turn off your brain and have fun for 100 minutes."
Grade A for a B movie

"Say what you will, this movie's awesome. Thomas Ian Griffith and Tia Carrere may never have hit the A list as actors, but in this movie they're great. Donal Sutherland as the psychotic pyromaniac assassin is hysterical. John Lithgow as the megalomaniacal madman bent on world domination is totally believable... okay, maybe not but I already used "hysterical" in this review.
Bottom line, if you like a good time and don't want to be bothered by excessive drama and pathos, this is the movie for you."
