Riveting action, rock and roll violence, churning terror and protagonists that you actually care about, despite their character flaws. Coburn is an asshole. He makes that clear himself. But you can't help but like him, even if just a little. I happened to like him a lot. He's hilarious. What sets this work apart, though, is the unexpected emotional impact at the end. Maybe I'm a softie, but I found it authentic and quite touching. It threw me for a loop, and that's good thing.
