Chest Inches?
12 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

One of the best types of films are the "cop on the edge" ones. You know the ones I'm talking about: The cop gets thrown off the case by his chief and he goes renegade to bring a criminal to justice. The are so many like "Cobra", "Cop", or most recently "Narc". "One Man Force" is one the best. Every line is a cliché like ("Get off my back chief!") John Matuszak plays Jake Swan, a no-nonsense cop who doesn't play by the rules, but when his partner is killed, he becomes a "One Man Force" to stop the bad guys. Matuszak puts in a fun performance as Jake. He is supported by excellent character actors Charles Napier, Ronny Cox, and fan favorite Richard Lynch. If you can find a copy, it's definitely one for your collection.

One other thing: The tagline For OMF is as follows: "Jake Swan: Narcotics Detective: 6'8-280 lbs-21" biceps, 55" chest. No One enforces the law like he does!" There's no reason to show off his 55" chest...? For more insanity, please visit: comeuppancereviews.com
