Fun nonsense, full of proper real explosions and stunt work, and Willis's and Jackson's bickering, buddy chemistry that makes it seem lovably old school. Plus, Jeremy Irons has a charisma that explains why people would gladly die for him. If in any doubt to its quality, compare to the same year's "Bad Boys".
This is both crazy and off-the-wall in all the right ways. Sure it´s loud and stupid but it really delivers action and suspense by the minute which is the whole point. The chemistry between Willis and Jackson also makes the movie very entertaining.
