Not as bad as you would expect
19 August 2007 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

I was in another office at work a few weeks back, when I was engaged in conversation about the "film" Terror In Beverly Hills. The guy I was speaking with just happened to have a VCR tape of this at his desk. I could not resist. Took it home, popped it in, and although you could tell they did not have much of a budget, they made it work with what they had.

The film starts in a holding cell of prisoners awaiting transfer to prison. Stallone plays a bad ass white power guy, with standard tattoos and bad attitude. During the transfer, an escape attempt leads to an accident, with several prisoners on the run together. They manage to take a vacationing family hostage, and that is where the head games begin.

I found the most entertaining part was when the prisoners took the clothing of the father hostage, and Stallone is walking around a store with a Harvard sweatshirt on. If you see the movie, you will appreciate that.

The movie contains too much profanity to count. More of the F bomb than Scarface.I was planning on watching it again to get an accurate count, but I had to return it. I don't recall any nudity, but plenty of violence. This one is not for kids. Overall, a 5 out of 10. And if you get a chance, check out my review of Terror In Beverly Hills. Not too many postings on that one. I was getting lonely.
