Cohen and Tate are two Mafia hit men who don't exactly hit it off. Cohen (Scheider) is an old pro, a cold-blooded killer who is all business. Tate (Baldwin) is a young hothead who kills for fun. Together they kidnap a nine-year-old Travis Knight, an eyewitness to a recent mob rub out. Now, they've got 24 hours to deliver him to Houston for interrogation and elimination. Realizing their mutual hatred is his only hope, Travis plays this lethal odd couple against each other. But when their volatile words explode into a fiery gun battle, he's caught in the cross fire.

Adam Baldwin gives a vicious performance as the hot-headed Tate, though a lot of his dialogue is badly dubbed over for content (despite the movie's R rating). Roy Scheider is ice-cold as Cohen, conceivable as a veteran killer suffering from hearing loss.
The movie as a whole isn't the greatest, but it's not so much the plot that drives this movie. The characters of Cohen and Tate, their conflicting natures and constitutions is what makes this movie worth your time. As the tension mounts, you can sense the characters' hatred for one another. When the movie reaches it's climax, you don't really care who gets killed but you really want someone to get it. One day I would love to see this movie released to DVD with Baldwin's original dialogue restored.
