Newt's movie review

Had this been John Woo's first film, he would not have been allowed to do others. There was an almost continuous stream of bullets for the duration of the movie, but that didn't help it any. It was predictable, slow, and way too long. On more than one occasion I was asking myself when a scene would be over. Some of them just went on and on and on. And where were all those guys coming from? Seriously! There was something like 100 guys coming from all directions but they piled out of one van. C'mon now.

And the final scene was just awful. Give this one a pass.
