Very well-made action-drama. The shootout and action sequences are impressive, but what stood out more to me was that the story was very nicely scripted, with developed characters. The climax felt very-well done and earned. One of the more overlooked of recent years.
This is a severely underrated action film. Excellent, likeable characters with balanced development, technically well made with solid plot. A very insightful and well-constructed title sequence. No wonder that Michael Mann produced: The ending shootout is one of the best I've seen in American cinema since Heat.
