"In the special features, Herrington, Swayze, and co-star Kelly Lynch all have a laugh at some of the stupid dialogue. But what they don't realize is that the dialogue is so dumb, it becomes brilliant again. The fact that they got so many talented actors to say these lines and do these scenes kind of boggles the mind, really. Nobody is the slightest bit believable, but that's kind of the point. You're not really supposed to believe in any of this."
"In short, it's a clattering pile of junk and no mistake. Every twist of direction is preannounced with a loud squeak, dramatized with a clanging literalness, and punctuated with a juddering crash. Fire engines have more subtlety. And yet it is strangely hard to dislike; the thing jumbles so many discordant elements together and makes such a racket about it that it is almost charming. It's like a compendium of all the worst comic book cliches."
