Az Heat
20 December 2005 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This flick has some quirky twists, with a plot of police chasing a murderer. It stars Michael Parks of 'Then Came Bronson' from 1969 TV. Denise Crosby delivers a good performance. She went on to star as Lt. Yarr on the inaugural season of Star Trek: the Next Generation. Good supporting actors, some were very quirky and some were just creepy. Hugh Farrington plays a police captain as he did on TV's TJ Hooker (starring William Shatner). Crosby plays a lesbian, not new, but in 1988, that was not a common topic. She is partnered with Parks and his character, of course, tries to hit on the lesbian. The result is thought provoking. This is a very watchable film. Be sure to sit still for the opening, it is pretty funny. It is a 'B' movie that never went to the theater but is certainly a good video pick for a group of friends.
