Rewatch is pretty much how I felt when I saw it in the 80's: Newman is dynamite, especially his scene with one-scene wonder Whitaker, & his subsequent breakdown - but Cruise is SO callow (acting, not character) that you keep waiting for a comeuppance that never comes. And you definitely want more with the beautiful, talented Mastrantonio & Shaver. Scorsese keeps things moving courtesy DP Michael Ballhaus & editor Thelma Schoonmaker, but its mostly flash.
