Clint Eastwood was mostly acting in Dirty Harry retreads like this, before his masterpiece Unforgiven was made. The plot is standard. Eastwood's partner is killed in the line of duty, during Eastwood's attempt to capture a German arms dealer (Raul Julia!). He's assigned a new young partner (Charlie Sheen) and naturally, they don't hit it off.

It has a couple of good action scenes and Eastwood is great as always, but his uneasy teaming with Sheen ends up being terribly embarrassing. Your suspension of disbelief is sorely tested with this one. Another thing!! Did we really need that uncomfortable bondage rape scene of Eastwood by Sonia Braga?

My Rating = Two Stars
