The highlight of this movie is seeing one of Linda Hamilton’s boobs in the love making scene .
I’m not sure how I’ve never seen this one, I feel as though I’ve watched just about every other ridiculous action thriller made in 1986. I was really surprised by just how far fetched and down right stupid the story is considering John Carpenter was involved in the writing. Most of the time I’m not even sure what’s going on… Something about a CIA guy played by Tommy Lee Jones, who somehow gets mixed up in a car theft ring and the woman working it. One of the cars stolen is a futuristic test car that Tommy has hidden some government secret in. After it’s been stolen… He’s on the case. The acting is actually pretty good with tons of B list character actors thrown in here and there. Lee Ving is pretty hilarious as an enemy of Tommy’s and sporting a Members Only jacket in one of the scenes. The music/soundtrack is down right terrible. This film really is just about as 80s as you can get, reminding me of Knight Rider meets Rockford Files (Devon is getting a boner). The highlight of this movie is seeing one of Linda Hamilton’s boobs in the love making scene . (NW)
