Nighthawks Reviews:

It was 1981 and the globe had just gone through a decade of terrorism. Casting Rutger Hauer and Persis Khambatta (she was the bald girl in the original Star Trek movie) as heartlessly cold terrorists was nice casting! Billy Dee Williams and Stallone as road cops suddenly transferred to a terrorist unit do a nice job. Stallone had not become a parody of himself yet and his diction is better here than it had ever been up to then. The movie's pace is unrelenting. This is a film that I almost everytime have to stop and watch, easy getting swiped up into the storyline again and again, when I see it on television. Perfect twist ending and monorail scene. Suggested highly.


Remember a day when Rutger Hauer starred in nice films that now saw wide theatrical release? No. Hmmmm. Hauer is one of my favourite actors and stars in two of my top ten favourite films (Blade Runner and The Osterman Weekend), so it's difficult not to already be slightly biased about the movie. I remember first hearing about Nighthawks on the Headliners and Legends biography of Stallone and how it was not as well received as his Rocky and First Blood movies. For shame, because Nighthawks does manage to be a top notch thriller most of the time. I should go into the plot, but I trust in saying folks what I liked and disliked instead of parroting the plot features like almost each another review. (See, a film to me is more fun when I only know a tiny about the story, instead of the first hour or so, because someone felt that they had to readers digest the whole film.)Anyway, actually that I've ranted, I have to admit that I enjoyed it for the most part, with the exception of the initial pacing. It continues to drag in territories towards the middle, and takes a tiny over an hour to set up the crucial users backgrounds. The only true trouble is that each time the movie stops to focus on DeSilva (Stallone) and Fox (Williams), it spends twice as much time focusing on Wulfgar. Wulfgar is certainly a well crafted maniac, but when the film is over we know almost nothing about Fox and only a tiny about Dee DeSilva. Still, the film does succeed in making you care about our two main characters, by thrusting them into danger and having them do what is morally right (i.e. Towards the beginning of the movie the two are in a drug raid, and refuse to take bribes from the perps who had apparently already paid off the cops from the first raid on their operation.They're nice cops, and it's their nice guy photo that endears them). I guess it would have been great also to see a tiny more of Stallones relation to what's her name. (sorry, I haven't seen this in a about a month now.) I was interested in the prospect of a character who was torn between the relation with his ex (who he was trying to re-ignite the flame with), and his duty. But, alas, she was just a narrative device who the writers have decided is only necessary in the last 15 mins or so.With all these cons, why did I still like it? Sudden scenes of high impact, nice cast and acting all around, a villain who wasn't just a cardboard cutout, and Stallone's bitchin' beard, and a wholly convincing scenario.The bottom line: This movie is more akin to The French Connection than it is to Rocky. Methodical and often stylish, NightHawks deserves to at least be rented and watched with an launch mind.8 Stars out of 10


This Sylvester Stallone film may be his greatest because, unlike most of his more popular roles over the years, this is very believable. He isn't Rambo or Rocky...just a tough Fresh York Town cop.Stallone and partner Billy Dee Williams squad up in an attempt to stop a terrifying international terrorist (Rutger Hauer) before he kills more people. All three of those actors are riveting in this rough, gritty film.I thought so much of this film that I purchased it twice. The first DVD that came out was fullscreen, no stereo and grainy. Later, they issued a better widescreen print and it was worth upgrading. The film is a top-notch thriller start-to-finish and Hauer makes an outstanding villain.It might be a cliché but this movie everytime "kept m on the edge of my seat. "
