Our Score
The mismatched buddy movie reaches an apotheosis of sorts here in director Tony Scott's flashy and foul-mouthed no-brainer, which forsakes plot for overblown shoot-outs and endless car chases. Lifting it above the thick-ear realm is the engaging chemistry between seedy gumshoe Bruce Willis and ex-star quarterback Damon Wayans. Both actors let humour spring effortlessly from their own personalities as well as from their screen characters, and the snappy put-downs make the super-charged action bearable.


A private eye half-heartedly takes a job as bodyguard to a nightclub dancer. A shocking attack, however, forces him to take his duties more seriously, and before long he uncovers evidence of murder and corruption - all linked to the world of American football. Action thriller, starring Bruce Willis, Damon Wayans, Chelsea Field, Halle Berry and Noble Willingham.
