Storyline

Joe Dylanne is 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 Katy, 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 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, an angst-ridden survivalist who explains to Dylanne about a sophisticated plan implicating marijuana plant growers. Dylanne and Joshua must trespass enemy territory in the name of revenge... Written by David Choi <KDaDDyChOi@aol.com>

not a bad sleeper movie...survivalist cop movie
23 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

It's a jack London "man against nature novel" meets FIRST BLOOD and a cop movie. QUIET COOL is the story of a New York cop who sets off to learn the fate of his family in the red woods of california. This revolves around a band of lawless drug dealers and a kid who has to survive in the woods using survival skills. This was one of the man low budget films NEW LINE did. THE HIDDEN came shortly after this one. This is a nice escape from reality movie and worth a view. Academy award material it is not.
