Nick Nolte as a surly, Neanderthal cop and Eddie Murphy as the fast-talking convict he springs to help him catch a pair of killers. This coupling of the physical and the verbal is one of director Walter Hill's favorite ploys... An entertaining and invigorating thriller, with a structure and some curious sexual overtones... Hill excels as usual with his chugging, stylized action scenes... All in all, a superior genre piece...
