The action gets to be too much by the second half of this film and by the end, it's gotten ludicrous, and all the f-words aren't necessary. Eddie Murphy plays his normal wise-cracking, ladies man, macho man, etc. He's a funny, talented guy but he - or his writers - don't know when to tone his act down.
Michael Wincott is the attraction of this film as the vicious killer with that distinctive voice of his. However, credibility wanes a bit as Wincott seems to have three live. He's almost impossible to kill! Michael Rapaport, meanwhile, plays an unusually subdued and appealing role for him.
As for that action, the best scene involved the runaway cable car. That was awesome, and a scene I'd like to see again. I wish I could say the same for the whole film. The 80's and 90's saw the momentous rise of beloved funnyman Eddie Murphy within the action comedy genre, particularly the wise cracking cop niche. 48 Hrs kicked it off, the Beverly Hills Cop trilogy added to the snowball effect, and so it went. His manic charisma led to many a starring role, including the somewhat forgotten actioner Metro, one thats notable because it shows the actor in just as many serious situations as comedic ones. There's a tether on his sense of humour here, which in other films has been set to roam and end up where it may, often halting entire scenes for his non stop antics to play out. Here he gets a few moments like that, but even more to get seriously angry and tough, most likely helped by the fact that he's up against one of the most truly heinous villains he's ever had to face. Here he's Scott Roper, a fast talking, resourceful San Francisco hostage negotiator who flexes both brain and brawn in a tense opening confrontation with a loose-screw criminal (Donal Logue). We see right off the bat what an efficient dude he is, a nice precursor for the trying times ahead. He's inhabits a world chock full of every necessary genre element: a cranky police captain (Denis Arndt), a sexy girlfriend (stunning British gal Carmen Ejogo), a fresh out of the academy rookie partner (Michael Rapaport, not given much to do) a recently deceased former partner (Art Evans) to avenge, slain by the obligatory arch criminal, in this case psychotic jewel thief Michael Korda (Michael Wincott). Wincott makes Korda a truly detestable guy. Vile, slithery and absent of any shred of remorse, killing his way through the city with Roper hot on his tail. And there you have it, every necessary element in place for a solid cop flick, and one that's gotten very little attention over the years. There's neat action set pieces including a showstopper set aboard a speeding trolley car, endearing bits of comedy now and then from Murphy and some savage violence that proclaims the film's hard R rating proudly. Murphy and Wincott have a sizzling verbal dual, separated by prison glass that launches the scene into the stratosphere of intense profanity, with F bombs spewed off in rapid fire, tempers and talents of both actors in overdrive. Lukewarm reviews can be found all over for this one. Yeah its no 48 Hrs, but it earns it's stripes and to me is one of Murphy's very best, helped along quite a bit by Wincott's snarling, evil presence. Great fun.
