(out of 5)

 plays a cab driver who was once chief of an Emergency Medical Services team. When a group of trucks illegally transporting toxic waste from New York City to New Jersey explode while still inside the Holland Tunnel, the entire structure caves in and traps a group of survivors inside. Luckily, Stallone is driving a fare nearby and happens to be available to play the hero. This film is a sad sack of cliches, but it does have its moments, mostly because the supporting characters are all drawn vividly with a lot of heart and fun kept consistently in mind. Sadly, this is the kind of film that Stallone was routinely doing in the eighties, and had he managed to outgrow them and moved to more cutting-edge material (like Schwarzenegger did by going sci-fi), his career might have stayed on top longer.
