Stoney Cooper, a former Los Angeles police officer, is at a low point in his life. Kicked off the force because of his anti-authority attitude, he now ekes out a living as a freelancer in New York. All this changes when the daughter of an old friend is killed by serial killer terrorizing L.A. Although almost nobody in his old home town is happy to see him back, Cooper pledges to bring the killer to justice before any more innocent people die. Written by

Don't listen to the IMDb philistines who knock this film. This is quite possibly the best movie ever made. Former soap hunk Wings Hauser stars a no-nonsense retired NY cop thrown into L.A.'s seedy crime underworld on the desperate heels of a crazed serial killer. A fist-full of cinematic fury all the way to its bitter, inevitable conclusion, "Deadly Force" offers uncompromising acting talents, a blistering soundtrack and a directorial style primarily inspired by French New Wave and Italian Neo-Realism. This film brilliantly explores the philosophical paradox of what it's like when the "hunter becomes the hunted." A must see.
