Only now does it occur to me... that I would ever witness the following tableau: A drugged-out, minor henchman played by Christian Slater (in a fox mask), partying at a low-rent version of EYES WIDE SHUT's creepy ball
is stalked into the bathroom by a sheet-music-mask-wearing, revenge-seeking Stallone
and abducted at knifepoint whilst mid-whiz
as Stallone uses the one-liner: "Grip it and zip it, party boy!"
As to the film: though it's a mean, semi-lean action picture by the legendary Walter Hill, it's not quite as good as I wanted it to be, despite the meaty acting stylings of Mr. Stallone and the extended-cameo-appearance by The Slater Factor. Carry on.
