Raw Deal? Don't mess with Schwarzenegger..!!
25 October 2005 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

I got this on video.. Looks like it's totally uncut. But Schwarzenegger is at his best, since playing The Terminator.. In this film, he's brought down to earth as this former FBI agent turned Sheriff in a small North Carolina town..

When an old friend's son of his get shot.. Schwarzenegger's character Kaminski decides to take the job in revenge of his friend's son. This leads him into the underworld of the crime bosses who are at each other's throat. On one side, you got Luigi Patrovita played by the late Sam Wanamaker.. On the other, you've got Laminski played by Steven Hill..

Paul Shenar looked great as Paulo Rocca.. Man! I suppose anyone didn't want to mess with this guy..!

As the film goes on, tension remains that Kaminski is determined to bring down Patrovita.. whatever the cost!

The music score in this film sounded OK! John Irvin's direction really kind of hooked me from the moment the film started, right way round to it finished..

Darren McGavin gave a good performance as Harry Shannon.. Although his character wanted to do what was best for his son.. Give 'em hell! or according to Kaminski.. 'Do what an old friend told me to do.. knock 'em dead!'

Robert Davi.. The cool, sophisticated, suave looking heavy Max Keller.. He played this character very well. It seems that when you see Robert Davi in character.. He plays one of those mean tough looking characters that you don't want to mess with..

All-in-all, the film lives up to its title.. Schwarzenegger certainly did his job by taking down the bad guys, no matter what!

Finally, I forgot to mention Kathryn Harrold.. She looks stunning in the film! Shame Kaminski couldn't go any further..

A good action film.. 8 out of 10!
