1992 | 18 | Blu- ray/ DVD In the early ’ 90s, Rutger Hauer appeared to be operating a “say yes to anything ” policy. The result was a seemingly endless stream of macho actioners riffing on his Blade Runner fame. Split Second is a part of that, but does at least have a wry sense of humour. Hauer plays Harley Stone, a hard- ass cop hunting a murderer in a future London. It soon becomes clear, however, that this killer isn’t human at all...
Split Second is dumb, loud and camp, but always entertaining. There’s a glimmer of a good idea in its waterlogged post- climate change setting, and it’s hard to restrain a grin when, off his tits on stress and coffee, bookish sidekick Dick Durkin tools up and goes on a rampage. Good B- movie fun.
Extras: Four minutes from an extended Japanese cut.
