|Sgt. Gonzalez (Santoni) & Marion Cobretti (Stallone)|
In a movie where everything is tense, there's got to be a little light- heartedness. These kinds of things are included so that the viewer knows that the main characters know what they're doing. This movie was panned by many critics saying that the dialog was very boring and the acting was terrible; sorry but I didn't see that. I had some good laughs and I think Stallone's character was written to be the way it was in the film, nothing more.
|Doesn't Brian Thompson look great or what?|
The actor who plays the killer (or Night Slasher) is Brian Thompson who I'll admit is pretty scary looking. He grunts, snorts, and has a bellowing voice that would make you cower in fear if you were the person who was going to be murdered by this dude. Seriously, in one scene he wears a wife beater where his muscles are enormous. In an arm wrestle alone, I don't think Stallone would stand a chance. Someone like Arnold Schwarzenegger probably would be better for the job. But this is a Stallone movie so you work with what you get and either way it's a great film.
Stallone's version of Gosling's book, Fair Game is action packed and quite thrilling. Adding to the action in this film, director George P. Cosmatos has a great cast that makes the characters very likable.
