Sly Stallone and Billy Dee Williams star as Agents DaSilva and Fox originally on the NYC decoy unit. They love their work, so they are dissatisfied when they are assigned to the ATAC squad. The squad's purpose is to apprehend the world's foremost mercenary terrorist, known only as Wulfgar (Rutger Hauer), dead or alive. The cops must deny their passive "don't get anybody hurt" strategy in favor of one of brute force, irregardless of hostage safety, which sits poorly (at first) with Stallone and Williams.
Wulfgar as the terrorist is -amazing-. He works with the NYC underworld to learn the liabilities/weaknesses of the ATAC squad out to get him. Combined with plastic surgery and a penchant for picking up girls in nightclubs, using them, and killing them, he is a formidable adversary. If that's not enough, when have you ever got to see Stallone in drag, twice, in a movie! All kidding aside, though, this is a great film to rent, but not good enough to buy.
Give it a try!
