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.

Hey! I liked it.
24 May 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Is it brilliant? The best darn parody since "Airplane"? Nah. But me and my drunken undergrad buddies thought it was funny enough to rent it more than a couple of times back in the early '90s. And I wouldn't mind another look at it, I tell you what.

It was funny enough for an evening. Better than the average sitcom anyway.

Gosh. Apparently, I need to write 10 lines. But this little movie is not really worth an additional character study, plot analysis or other academic exercises. It was fun but no more essential than this useless padding.
