Storyline

Traxx has battled his way through El Salvador, the Middle East and Nicaragua, spitting lead with two-handed good grace. He decides to retire to a life of baking designer cookies. Running out of dough to buy more dough, he hires himself as a "Town Tamer" and begins cleaning up Hadleyville, Texas, telling the lowlife street scum, "You got three choices. Be good, be gone, or be dead." Like all bacteria, the scum are resistant: crime boss Aldo Palucci (Robert Davi) brings in the dreaded Guzik brothers to rid the town of the town tamer, setting the stage for a showdown in the streets.

Quotes

Commissioner R.B. Davis: As police officers, we hold to a higher standard to what we deal with. You're out of the jungle, Traxx! This is civilization, or can't you tell the difference?
Traxx: It didn't look much different to me.
Commissioner R.B. Davis: Let me tell you something, Traxx. This is the 80s! Suspects and victims have the same rights! Even if they do shoot and kill an old lady and a puppy!
Traxx: Well... I'd like to hear that from puppy's family.

Shadoe Stevens is a GOD!!!!!!!!
30 September 2004 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I truly believe that anyone who's a fan of clever writing, plot twists, suspense, great action sequences and drama.............should never watch this film looking for those things! They should watch it, however, to have a good laugh at how bad a movie can truly be. Every second of this movie is entertaining for the sheer fact that it is one of the worst movies ever made. Shadoe Stevens performance is horrible. I love it!!! Someone who can be so unashamedly cheesy and yet so suave at the same time has my respect for all time. If you love laughing at bad movies, Traxx is for you. I'll end with a quote from the theme song.....

"having trouble with some maniacs?

send for traxx"
