Andrew McGuirk: Very thrilling!

Shaun Myburg: Big on action, big on laughs and big on talent. This highly impressive actioner is the most fun you are going to have at a movie. Wahlberg throws in an enjoyable performance as Melvyn Smiley, and everyone's favourite Lou-Diamond Phillips role as Chico is highly entertaining. With people like John Woo and Wesley Snipes backing this film, you know it's gonna be ''A Big Hit''. Look out for an extremely funny skit about an outstanding video...and take note!

Isma Manitsa: Lame.

Simon Richardson: This was one of the worst films I have ever seen. I have never ever walked out of a film that I have paid to see or otherwise and I yet could not endure the mindless, cliched, pathetic dialogue and bad performances that composed this film. This was not a clever satire or spoof of action films and I am surprised at the ratings given on this page. This was an insult to the action film genre.

Louise Parris: The worst movie of the year. Walked out of the cinema after 20 minutes of sheer agony. Should be re-named The Big Shit. Mark Wahlberg has taken a step down since Boogie Nights and Lou Diamond Phillips is HATEFUL.. Don't see it - you'll be wasting money.

Robert Haynes: Go Simon Richardson - couldn't agree more - I also walked out of this mess after about 20 minutes. Very seldom does a film grate me to the extent that I vacate the cinema - but this one has the pleasure of being my first walkout of 1998 - BAAAAD - I'm also shocked at all the smiley-faces on this page - come on people.
