I remember I really liked this film when I first saw it in the mid 1990's. And it definitely has it's moments, the homage to Fellini's 8 1/2
as the opening scene is really well done and just as intense as it has to be – though a tad more realistic than the original. The early 90's/late 80's police environment feels dated, but at the same time cool exactly because
of its outdated coolness factor. What doesn't work as well is the leading role. Michael Douglas does an excellent job portraying him, but the character is an utterly unsympathetic, self centred, nationalistic dickhead. As a social commentary it would work a lot better with a less unsympathetic leading role. Also I think the contrast between the determinism of the main character, and the too whimsical police department does not work as well today as it did in the early 90's.
Still, I still think it's a film worth watching, if you haven't done so already. It's a good reference for it's time, the film is well made and as said, it does have it's great moments.
