Actually, calling anything in this movie cliched might be missing the point. It isn't "only" science fiction, fantasy, horror, and action, but I want to say it's a parody of all that stuff, too. It even goes out of its way to do the old "meet your new partner" routine with surprising freshness. Or maybe I'm being too kind to it, considering I feel like I'm the only person who likes this movie. And I always liked this movie.
See, a long time ago Stone's partner was murdered by the very thing which is running around town, ripping hearts out and drawing intricate astrological signs in blood. Stone has been steadily going downhill ever since the incident and it's not until later when we find out why he's psychically linked to the beast. The monster, by the way, is ten feet tall, has a wicked set of teeth and claws, but turns out to be one of the most disappointing rubber suits you'll ever see. Never mind that because the ride up until that point is fun as hell.
Do you like the early 90s ridiculous vision of the future? Do you like Rutger Hauer? If yes, you're going to like this movie. Early nineties Terminator, Alien, and Predator ripoffs are kind of a guilty pleasure for me, if only because I'm so damn nostalgic for them.
