"San Francisco's top police hostage negotiator is about to get more than he ever bargained for."


  • Director: Thomas Carter
  • Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Crime, Thriller
  • Studio: Caravan Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 110 Mins

Following the goofy slapstick of The Nutty Professor, Eddie Murphy returned to the genre that made him a star with this misfiring action vehicle. It has a harder centre than usual as hostage negotiator Murphy uses his motormouth talents to haggle with hostage takers. However, his persuasive charms are sorely tested when he comes up against psychopathic jewel thief Michael Wincott, who remains unconvinced that it's good to talk. The highlight set piece is a car chase involving a runaway tram, but otherwise director Thomas Carter, who cut his teeth on TV series such as Remington Steele and Midnight Caller, displays little flair in the action department. Beverly Hills Cop was more fun.
