An exhilarating action film which delivers heart pounding thrills.

James Remar (THE WARRIORS, MORTAL KOMBAT: ANNIHILATION) is Joe Dylanne, a plainclothes NYC cop with a badge...and a robust personality. He always resorts to unconventional methods in order to capture the city's slickest criminals. When Dylanne receives a message from Kate (Daphne Ashbrook), an old sweetheart of his, the news is not as pleasant as he anticipated. Rather, it is an imperative call for help. Dylanne must swing into full action. This cop must travel to a remote location in the Pacific northwest in order to investigate the disappearances of his friend's relatives.

It turns out that most of Kate's relatives have been murdered in cold blood. The only survivor of the slaughter is Joshua (Adam Coleman Howard), an angst-ridden survivalist who explains to Dylanne about a sophisticated plan implicating marijuana plant growers.

Frankly, Joe Dylanne has not exactly received a lot of hospitality after traveling to this small town in Northern California. For starters, hot on his trail is a hot-headed sheriff, Mike Prior (Jared Martin). The bad guys have also placed a premium for Dylanne's head...

After Dylanne loses one of his loved ones to uncontrollable circumstances, vengeance has no fury... Dylanne and Joshua must trespass enemy territory in the name of revenge... Their mission is clear: to extirpate the ones who took the liberty to murder one of their close friends.

QUIET COOL is one of the coolest sleeper hits of the 1980s. It is probably one of the first films to deal with the dangerous phenomenon of marijuana. QUIET COOL has a neat premise. The villains in this movie are not ordinary everyday petty thugs; they are ambitious businessmen who want to make a profit. These people tend to be cunning and vile. In addition, QUIET COOL is one of the first contemporary action films to deliver an anti-drug, anti-smoking message.

Of particular acclamation in this movie belongs to star James Remar. Remar is one hell of an actor. He kind of resembles action hero Steve McQueen. Both actors manage to keep a calm, cool, and collected composure during the most substantial dilemmas. That quality is so rare in today's modern action heroes. Remar captures the stunning, strong essence of Steve McQueen.

Furthermore, the outdoor locations in this movie are exquisitely photographed, capturing the finer aspects of nature. The action scenes are tremendous. The stunts, especially the motorcycle chase through a subway, are well executed. The finale is also incredible with plenty of thrills.

Overall, QUIET COOL is a tough, violent, and remarkably gritty thriller. Just enjoy this film for what it is: A low budget, fun ride. A great cast, a solid plot, and superior action scenes make this film a rightfully knockout hit. QUIET COOL may not succeed as a blockbuster, but it will refresh you if the summer heat outside is too much to handle!

RATING: **1/2 out of ****.
