Raw Deal

Raw Deal

John Irvin (1986)

18 Certificate


Our Score
This entertaining exercise in crash-bang policing comes from John Irvin, whose only previous action assignment was the less-than-inspiring Dogs of War. Fresh from the critically panned Red Sonja, Arnold Schwarzenegger was probably keen to get back to the old routine and here stars as an ex-FBI agent who goes under cover to nail a Chicago mobster (Sam Wanamaker). The film is populated with stereotypes and Arnie dispatches a great many bad guys with his usual lack of expression and a seemingly inexhaustable supply of bullets, but if you can suspend your disbelief you'll have a ball.
