A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Nick Pulovski is a cop, who is presently assigned to the auto theft division and who for the most part of his career has not done anything worthwhile. But when he discovers that a man named Strom is the brains behind a major car theft and chop shop ring, he sees this as his opportunity to do something. After his partner is killed, the case is then transfered to homicide, so he is taken off the case. And he is assigned a new partner, David Ackerman. a cop who has just recently been promoted to detective. But Pulovski feeling as if Strom is his decides to continue pursuing him but Ackerman who tries to play by the rules is not sure what to do, and he is also a little afraid cause of a childhood incident.Written by

When Nick Pulovski (Clint Eastwood) is showing his partner, David Ackerman (Charlie Sheen), his collection of motorcycles, Ackerman says of the one bike that it is "a 1967 Triumph TR6". A Triumph TR6 is a sports car, not a motorbike. See more »
Lt. Ray Garcia:
[Strom has demanded 2 million dollars' ransom for Pulovski]
2 million dollars? Are you out of your fuckin' mind?
That's not pertinent, *is* it?

The UK cinema version was cut by 10 secs for a 15 certificate to reduce footage of gunshots and a closeup of Pulovski's forehead being cut with a razor blade. The cuts were restored in 18 rated video releases. See more »
What the heck are these people who are putting this movie down talkin about? This movie is a lot of fun, not super original, but still a lot of fun. Its a typical cop buddy movie but still a WELL MADE cop buddy movie. The scene where Charlie Sheen beats the crap out of an entire bar full of scuzball bikers is great! "C'mon, mutherf'ers! C'mon, mutherf'ers! C'mon!" Charlie keeps screaming this like a madman while he beats the bejeezus outta the bikers, and it rocks. Clint Eastwood directed some of his best action scenes in this flick as well. Anyone who likes a good old fashioned Hollywood popcorn roller coaster ride movie with plenty of snappy one liners will definitely dig this underrated gem!
