DisappointingBy KEITH WILSON from Cambridge , 25 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]The acting and dialogue is often is stilted and wooden like the direction by Dennis Hopper. I didn't know whether I was supposed to laugh or squirm at the awful cameo by Charlie Sheen (who, for example, manages to breath steadily and deeply after being shot to shreds). Jodie Foster rarely disappoints, but god knows what she is doing in this awkward and poor movie. I couldn't make it all the way through so I never got to see Bob Dylan. Probably a blessing.

Dated, on the day it was filmed.By Naws (31 reviews) from Abingdon , 30 Jun 2013Filmed in 1990. Looks like 1970. I had to double check when this was made. Yes, it was 1990, but it looks like it was made in 1970.
modern art and liquid oxygenBy juradino (815 reviews) from London , 29 Jun 2011Burst tyre puts female artist in jeopardy and she witnesses gangland killing. Police are after her to get her as witness and mob hires professional hitman to kill her after they kill her boyfriend by mistake. Their hitman Milo turns out to be professional to perfection and kidnaps the woman instead of killing her to become himself target for execution having killed one of their employers gang members instead. It turns out him and her are two of a kind. Ending is quite explosive due to big mob boss running chemical factory as cover.
An amazing cast...By flippertbk (160 reviews) from Milton Keynes , 08 Apr 2011So many wonderful actors in this that Charlie Sheen who had a small part, was not credited at the start did not, Even more surprising: Joe Pesci, if he was credited at the start, was not at the end of the film. A shock, as he did a wonderful job :)
This thriller, come love story, come - famous film title that will give away the plot - was a little unbelievable in many places, but it was good fun. If you forgive the very 80s clothes and hairstyles, there were a lot of shots of Jodie Foster's legs often wearing some very short skirts :)
disapointingBy a customer from Clitheroe , 16 Sep 2009Being a vincent price fan and this being one of his films I hadn't seen my curiousity got the better of me.Unfortuneately he's literally in it for about thirty seconds. The rest is a strange confusing mess of a hitman who falls in love with his hit and decides to welch on the mafia, it's just a mess all round although there is one tense scene in a crazy golf windmill but it's often too dark to see whats going on and the characters and dialogue have to be seen to be believed.
What Happened?By FrankIV (534 reviews) from Cirencester, England , 26 Mar 2009Despite the amount of talent involved, this is as much of a mess as people say it is, but it is interesting to speculate on what went wrong. At some point, the director - presumably Hopper - decided to take his name off the credits and have it replaced by the redoubtable Mr. Smithee. I'd love to know why, and what the film would have looked like if whatever happened hadn't happened. Jodie Foster, though, is a consolation - she's always worth watching whatever is going on around her.
