Packing years of experience and a .45 automatic, LAPD Detective Nick Pulovki figures he's got all the help he needs. He's also got all the help he doesn't need. His new partner is The Rookie.
Director/star Clint Eastwood is Pulovski. Charlie Sheen is the by the book newcomer. Each reluctantly relies on the other to stop a killer-elite gang of auto thieves. Raul Julia, Sonia Braga, Lara Flynn Boyle and Tom Skeritt co-star with "the most spectacular action sequences Eastwood has ever filmed" (Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune). A freeway becomes an 80-mph bumper car game. A barrio bar busts open like a giant pinata. The two drive through a wall to escape an exploding building... five stories up. Fasten your seat belt.
