Jericho "Action" Jackson is a Detroit police sergeant who was demoted from lieutenant for almost tearing the arm off of sexually violent sociopath Sean Dellaplane, whose father is Peter Dellaplane, a major car manufacturer. But Dellaplane himself is violent as well. Dellaplane kills his wife Patrice by shooting her. And then he plants her body in Jackson's apartment, framing Jackson. Dellaplane won't miss Patrice very much, because he has a drug-addicted mistress named Sydney Ash. He keeps Sydney hooked with a free supply of heroin. Jackson suspects Dellaplane of masterminding a murder spree against local officials from the auto workers' union. Dellaplane's mission is to gain a political power base and choose the next president of the United States. Because of what happened to Dellaplane's son Sean, Dellaplane has taken a particular dislike to Jackson. Jackson gets Sydney's help in going after Dellaplane. Written by

When Carl Weathers and Vanity jump out of the hotel window, if you look carefully at "Vanity's" legs you can see that the stunt double didn't shave his legs for this scene, and his feet could never fit in her shoes. See more »
If action had a name it would be ACTION.... Jackson!
Some say he didn't even have a mother and he was created by NASA to be the first man to walk on the moon without a space suit, others say his mother was molested by a Yeti and he was their mutant offspring... Well their all wrong he's actually just the most bad ass cop in all of Mo-Town. And he's out to kick some serious posterior on Martial Arts, Gang Lord Craig T. Nelson (ABC's Coach) and his gang of Euro- Trash 80's Super Assigns. Carl Weathers is "Action" Jackson the Cop so bad the that he can beat the living cheese out of the crooks so badly that their ancestors will feel it 12 centuries from now. He knocks a giant fat guy through a door! He throws some guy out a window with such force that the sorry punk flies through the window of the building on the other side of the alleyway! He destroys a cab by flipping over it for Pete's Sake!!! Why do they call him Action? Do the Math Brainiac!!! SEE IT!!!
