The song that Lauren Roth picks to play on the Jukebox after Jace Smith's "Emily" ends is "Kicks" composed by Ricky Phillips and the beautiful Tane McClure (who was then called by Tane Cain at the time. Because she was married to Jonathan Cain, the Keyboardist & Rhythm Guitarist of Journey back then), who was known for being the lead singer of the Indie Rock band, Tryanglz. See more »

"Armed Response" is one of Fred Olen Ray's earliest directorial efforts, and it also less schlocky than some of his other ones, closer to an actual legitimate action film (it's hard to believe he would make a film as unbelievably bad as "Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers" only two years later). It has a fairly complicated plot, which would be hard to summarize in a single paragraph, and a cast that's a B-movie fan's dream (where else could you find Lee Van Cleef and Michael Berryman together?), though it must be noted that David Carradine is particularly awful in this movie. (**1/2)
