Terrible...and that's the nicest thing I can say about this one.
28 September 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Riot Squad" is a film I simply couldn't finish--so I'll tell you this up front. I want to be honest about this. It was because the film was just so incredibly awful. The script was duller than dust, the actors as charismatic as corpses and the whole thing looked like it was made on a budget of $7. It's a film so bad that not only would Monogram Studios have been embarrassed to make it but PRC! It's just slow, tedious and bad. Nothing stood out in a positive way about my watching the film and I can easily understand how the film has slipped into the public domain. If you are a big masochist, it's currently posted on YouTube but I wonder who would want to subject themselves to this thing?!
