A half-forgotten relic from the misty days of the early 90s. . .You may be incredulous, but both Mickey Rourke (before his face got messed up) and Don Johnson embodied a kind of masculine cool in the 80s. Rourke was a Brando-esque bad boy who seemed contemptuous of his good looks, so much so that he took up boxing, while Johnson, in "Miami Vice," was the no-socks wearing, perpetual five o'clock shadow, fast-car driving guy. So it was perhaps inevitable that they would team up for this odd, action-packed buddy picture that plays like a dumb version of "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid." Set in the future for no discernible reason, it stars Rourke as Harley (he rides a Harley) and Johnson as Marlboro (he always has a cigarette). This blatant product placement (there are also characters named Jack Daniels and Virginia Slim) is an indication of the film's intelligence. A friend's bar is going to close, so they rob an armored car, but they messed with the wrong guy! Giancarlo Esposito (Gus from "Breaking Bad"), Daniel Baldwin (the "forgotten Baldwin"), Tom Sizemore, Vanessa Williams, and Chelsea Field (who was in another terrible action movie the same year, "Last Boy Scout") co-star. It's not terrible, it's just pretty stupid and Johnson and Rourke are not as cool as they think they are. Worthwhile for the bad action movie aficionado.
