"JCVD's first in a series of films where he plays twins as well as marking his screenwriting debut. Suffice to say, it is poorly written and acted and full of silly sequences, but Lettich directs with some style and mixes eastern and western action modes with a modest degree of skill, despite his blatant thievery. The Hong Kong locations are well used, alternating between lavish and seedy, and Lettich controls the pace just enough to make you forgive how preposterous and stupid it is."

"Aykroyd works overtime to inject some energy and life into this would be zany romp, but Pressman really has no idea what he is doing or why he is doing it. It isn't funny, and it doesn't help that Aykroyd rarely has anyone talented to bounce off, which is a bad idea because he tends to work best in ensembles. Despite being a rather poor comedy, it is a mild curiosity because it's the kind of oddball comedy that major Hollywood studios wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole today."

"'Something interesting comes from the rubble of conventions.' Interesting, of course, isn't the same as good, but Sono's quality over quantity' approach, repeated in an almost mantra like fashion here, explains his modus operandi and the wildly uneven output of his films. It takes balls to admit this, and it's a philosophy that isn't a justification for crap but more a kind of ethos that allows the potential for greatness or failure to arise from openly embracing risk."
60 45% The Front Page (1974) - May 26, 2020
"A watchable but completely unnecessary remake that even Wilder regretted making. At this stage of his career, he was seriously losing touch with contemporary audiences, and the warning signs of his impending doom are visible here in bright neon lights. It is a complete throwback, but unlike What's Up Doc, it isn't an energetic ride through times past tempered by youthful exuberance. It is saved by a great cast who distract the viewer somewhat from the overwhelming feeling of redundancy. "
