It's terrible. Stallone chews the scenery, Schneider mucks up as the comic relief, Diane Lane is criminally underused and Armand Assante... jesusfrigginchrist Armand Assante. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I love this movie... for all the wrong reasons... but still.
I always liked this film as a kid. I enjoyed the action scenes including the hover cycle chase. With a remake on the way, I hope it is extremely better than this film, but I would still watch this film despite the plot holes it made during the film. Either way still a decent action film.
Yeah, the movie's pretty bad. Horribly derivative, cheesy, predictable, and weighed down by Stallone's leaden presence. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a great time watching this train wreck. The special effects are cool, the supporting cast is game, and there are even shreds of a story that could have been a good comic book movie. But there is no excuse for Rob Schneider's grating comic relief character.
