Another fine action oriented flick from maverick director Walter Hill. Ice T and Ice Cube face off against William Sadler and Bill Paxton in an abandoned factory mixing a hunt for gold treasure with a turf war. What adds to the fun is that neither side is above a little in fighting as their goals continually slip from their grasp. Fine angles and camera work dominate this shoot’em up from Hill, the man responsible for Hard Times, The Warriors and 48 Hours among others. It may not be among his more popular films but it surely deserves a look if you can find a copy.
Eight years after the fact, this, can we say ‘neglected’ review, deserves at the very, very least a ‘like’.
