Both men are at home in this screenplay, which hates women with a particular viciousness; the verbal violence begins by calling them bitches and whores and worse, over and over again, and the message is that a man can only really trust another man. The end of the movie is peculiar in the way it insists on this; the hero, reconciled with his cheating wife, embraces her and whispers vile obscenities into her ear.

We are intended to read them as tender. Then he strolls off lovingly with his buddy. I am a reporter. As I said before, this film works. Despite any objection I may have felt, it plays well with an audience although some of the people around me seemed disturbed by an extended scene in which Willis and his child curse each other. The movie has a lot of laughs, its action sequences are thrilling, its surprises are startling, and it shows a real ingenuity in the ways by which it gets Willis into, and out of, trouble.
The plot involves Willis as an ex-Secret Service agent he once stopped several bullets intended for Jimmy Carter , who is now a flea-bitten private eye. The plot leads to bigger game, all the way up to a corrupt team owner Noble Willingham who wants to buy legislators and legalize gambling on pro football.
Cast & Crew
Willingham is surrounded by sleazy and depraved henchmen Taylor Negron is magnificently despicable as the worst of them , and there is a plot involving high explosives, kidnappings, high-tech chases, long moments spent on the brink of death, graphic beatings, and the involvement of the young child in the most savage of the violence, to flavor it with a novel edge. The story depends heavily on the device of the Talking Killer, which I have written about elsewhere; the killer who need only pull the trigger to end the movie, but chooses instead to boast and stall until the hero can somehow outsmart him.
The many ways in which Willis outsmarts Talking Killers in this film provide some of its best moments, and there is also excitement in the climactic scene inside the football stadium although I imagine the average NFL crowd, confronted with a machinegun battle inside the stadium, would flee rather than cheer on cue. How is the critic to respond? To give it a negative review would be dishonest, because it is such a skillful and well-crafted movie. To be positive is to seem to approve its sickness about women. Your support would mean that you too are a part of this film making process. Film is all about collaboration and it would mean the world to me if you would choose to come on this journey with me.
