As nasty as a 1980s mullet.
18 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With having heard a bit about Dick Wolfs long-running hit series Law & Order,when i found this on video i thought that it was worth a try,and i feel that this is a very hair-spray pre-Homicide: Life on the Street,fluff.

The Plot: With North Las Vegas being overrun by a huge weapons dealer,the police feel that it is time to fight back.So they set up a rebel unit called The Nasty Boys to take on the troubles of the city.But with a leek in the police department,the leads to the head of The Nasty Boys getting shot,the others decide that its time the they battle the dealer,head on.

View on the film: Screenplay:The screenplay is by Dick Wolf and David Black from a story by Wolf.While this first looks like the it will be a fun SWAT style Film,the film sadly does not have any scenes that help to give it the adrenaline rush the it needs,and it also seems to be a very weak take on Walter Hills 1979 Cult-classic The Warriors.

Direction:The film is directed by Rick Rosenthal,Rosenthal does a pretty good job with the small budget in some parts.By doing some classy funeral scenes and also doing an all-too- brief mini Scarface style final battle.

Final view on the film: A very poor Gang/Cop take on the great film,The Warriors.
