This movie is so bad that you have to love it, from the opening scene in the super market, to the motorcycle/car chase at the end of the movie. This movie has got it all.

For instance when the super market is threatened to be blown to pieces Sly says, "Go ahead, I don't shop here."    As for Brigitte Nielsen, what a wonderful little (or tall) actress she is.
