Double Edge

release year: 1987
genre: action/adventure
viewing setting: home laserdisc, 12/20/98
what I expected: low-budget action
what I got: decent East-West cop buddy film

synopsis: The sinister work of an expert assassin brings together a U.S. cop and a Korean cop.

impressions: Pretty good - lots of fistfights and gunfights, and a dose of martial arts too. The assassin had some cool deeds here, and the plot was basic yet strong.

acting: Michael Biehn does okay, as does the other fellow. Above mediocre acting here, but nothing worth an Oscar.

final word: Action-laden cop-buddy film, worth seeing once.

rating: C
