Cambell's character has a lot to overcome to develop any kind sympathy with the audience. He's an ornery cuss to his wife and he's screwing around with a co-worker. Not exactly the kind of guy you want to root for. As the movie progresses though, you almost forget all that. His emotive facial expressions and physicality that's a cross between Jackie Chan and Dick Van Dyke really carries the film. Best example is when he's being tossed around in the back of the Paddy Wagon during the final chase scene. It's over the top but you want to believe it by then. Continuity issue in that very same scene. Forest's (Campbell) girlfriend, supposedly a capable police officer, points the loaded shotgun several times at both her own face and that of the young officer driving her to the Pier. Anyone with any firearms training would have maintained better muzzle control, particularly in a vehicle in pursuit. All and all, very entertaining action flick and that's what movies are all about. Would have been nice if there'd been an explanation offered as to Matt's ability to survive multiple point blank gunshot wounds unscathed. Bet that was deemed too silly and left on the cutting room floor. Good makeup on Matt and watch for Sam Raimi's cameo in the parade.
