Richard Hatch, the Ghetto Blaster.
3 January 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Ex-soldier Travis(Richard Hatch)returns to Los Angeles to visit his parents.He quickly learns that his hood is rife with criminal activity and gang warfare.People are terrorized by vicious punks from The Hammers gang.When his father is killed and his friend is burned alive Travis becomes remorseless vigilante.Very cheesy and surprisingly violent action flick with some jaw-dropping scenes of brutality.Even little girl is killed during gang warfare.There are some humorous moments in this fast-paced vigilante flick in the vein of "The Exterminator" and "Death Wish III".Richard Hatch is a decent hero and Diane Moser who plays Gina is truly beautiful.The clown scene is priceless.6 burned cats out of 10.
