This is an exceptionally underrated film. They actually reload their weapons after a correct amount of rounds fired, someone really cared when they made this movie. Ryan and Benicio are amazing and James Caan is electric. The support is quite good as well. If you like action/crime type movies this is IMO one of the very best.

Action packed and you can tell that they had great tactical Consultants. I love the Politically Incorrectness of it - refreshing. Some great one liners as well. Its a classic to me and have watched it at least 50 times through the years.

This movie is exceptional. The Rotten Tomatoes rating is way off. The move is refreshingly unique, has excellent casting, great tension throughout, well thought out action and gunplay, the grit and desperation are palpable. I've watched it at least 20 times. So good!
