Scott has had a number of D.C. that have actually panned out, but he is in the minority.
Others, like this movie, often feel bloated.

The final act (after The Chief gets his) is very well done.
It flows together beautifully, although I prefer the Fire from Above ending.

A word on the A/V quality....
The video often looks superb, although nasty amounts of grain in the lighter areas can be found on long shots (ie, the gunship attack from the sea).
Audio also is often excellent (for its age), particularly dialog...the opening with Jim Morrison singing is overwhelming.
