Storyline

Eddie Cusack is a Chicago police officer about to bust some members of the Comacho gang when the gang is shot up by a rival drug gang from the neighboring building, led by Tony Luna. Victor Comacho is the only survivor of the Comacho gang and his older brother, Luis, who is the leader of the gang, retaliates by killing Luna's family and kidnaps Luna's daughter, Diana. Cusack must face Tony Luna and Luis Comacho alone because nobody on the police force is willing to help him since he was the only cop who broke the code of silence by testifying against a fellow cop who killed an unarmed teenager, but Cusack is not really alone. A police robot called "Prowler" aides Cusack as he takes down the gangs. Written by Anonymous

Why don't you give it to me right now...?

Chuck's best film. That may not say too much, but come ON.

The action actually took a back seat to the plot about the alcoholic/burnt out veteran whom no one was willing to see the truth about. Great drama involving the rookie who wants to do the right thing and Chuck's reality check.

The warring drug gangs were full of clichés even if it was done well. A bit of racial profiling too. Colombians killing everybody even closely related to their nemesis. And the Italian gang just being unable to leave well enough alone. The actors here (especially Henry Silva) did a great job with the material.

A decent slam-banger with a lot of good scenes in it. And for once, Chuck's somnambulist acting was a plus. Clint was the original choice here. It's easy to imagine him in the role too. But then, Chuck always was the second string Clint.
