A better than average out-of-control-cop movie, which would normally put me to sleep, since how many kinds of car chases. shootouts, explosions, wrecks & fight scenes have I seen on TV already? Hundreds? Thousands?
However, this movie has a very refreshing twist in that Johnson plays a badass cop who whups up on creepy white-supremacists—instead of giving them a pass, which the police tend to do now under Trump.
I dislike pointless violence, but I never get tired of watching racist creeps get their butts kicked. But then, kicking white-supremacist booty isn't pointless, it's a worthwhile, socially constructive activity.
I've liked Don Johnson ever since I saw A BOY AND HIS DOG, a darkly funny surreal sci-fi satire. His work always seemed to have more complexity and humor than plywood tough guys like Willis, Eastwood, Stallone, Norris, Segal, Van Damme, Schwarzenegger, etc, who just seem to be all ego, with no depth or humanity.
This is a well-produced movie, much better than most action flicks. It's directed by the great John Frankenheimer (The Manchurian Candidate, The Birdman Of Alcatraz, et al) with an A-list cast, a very good script, fine camerawork, '80s soundtrack and all.
Not only is this a very good action movie, it actually makes a very worthwhile statement about white-supremacy, which today has become a critical problem, just as this movie predicted it would become.
