Sandra's most blockbustery role to date, playing San Angeles police lieutenant Lenina Huxley, who is charged with looking after recently defrosted cop from the past John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone), thawed to help track down Wesley Snipes' super-crim.
The wilfully silly film is pretty good fun, and knows it. How much you enjoy the opening scene (Sly infiltrating a hostage scene by bungeeing in, guns blazing) will act as a litmus test for your appreciation of the whole movie.
Hollywood's Sweetheart? There are certainly early signs of it here, in her naive but spunky cop.
