John Tucker is the notoriously feared leader of the Civilian Operated Police Systems, a ruthless band of bounty hunters formed to restore order in a city overrun with crime. In the name of the law, and armed with an arsenal of weapons, he will stop at nothing to capture each bounty. But when corruption is exposed within the C.O.P.S. organization--instead of upholding the law--John Tucker will be forced to fight it. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Good "bad" cinema .......
26 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

See it for the fight in the junkyard between Carradine and Tessier. Both appear so out of shape that the huffing and puffing could blow a house down. "Future Force" is a film that makes no sense, yet has moments of weirdness that keeps things going. The remote controlled glove is certainly a highlight. The zero budget shows through in almost every spartan scene. Product placements for whiskey, beer, and mixers appear throughout. Think of this as sort of a "spaghetti western" taking place in 1991, only following a standard exploitation formula with a mandatory strip bar, nonsensical explosions, and gun play that misses at point blank range. Truly this is good "bad" cinema. - MERK
