I have often wondered if this movie and Jack Frost were made by the same movie company, because they were made the same year, 1986, if so, they probably filmed key scenes for each movie, similtainously(all the scenes that JC and Keaton were in frame together)! I think I'll do some research!

only a 8/10 for this one, JC only had a little screen time.

Plenty of action, in fact rather too much as the hospital is all but destroyed as homicidal Michael Keaton goes on the rampage. Joseph Cross plays his somewhat short part well as the little boy desperately in need of a bone marrow transplant. The whole thing is over the top but enjoyable all the same.
