New York cop Deke DaSilva loves his job on the decoy squad so much he has several times forgone promotion. So when he and his partner are assigned to a new anti-terrorist unit he is pretty hostile to the idea. The unit is run by a British expert who suspects a major terrorist is in town. His message is shoot to kill, which makes DaSilva even unhappier. But when bombs start going off he thinks again.


Nighthawks Exciting shoot 'em up with Stallone and Williams as cops who try to nab terrorist Hauer, who is fantastic in his first American film. Wagner is here for good measure, I suppose. Great final scene with the tables turned on Hauer.
