Just read Jack Lehtonen's review on this page. I would just he repeating what he said. I don't rate it quite as highly as him, but it's pure 90s cinema entertainment, and then some (as Jack lays it out).
The bulk of the film is a war dance (or a mating ritual) between two apex predators, jumpstarted and concluded by two sequences that show just how good McTiernan is at action setpieces. The final sequence in particular is pure cinematic action; without the need of guns, fire, explosions, shaky cam, etc. Just employing creativity, editing, and a perfectly chosen music track.
