A very underground'ish b film very much entertains
Cops don't come any cooler than Doc Dougherty. That's what I feel when I see this not half bad flick, which I've seen a few times now, over it's 25 years of existence. He's an angry, embittered cop, John Wills (Dougherty) who does things his way, and he's got a lot to be angry about too. He's just seen his partner buried, and finishes his job, going back to confront the murderous hand, in a "shoot now, ask questions later" routine. It very much resembles that early scene too, in Marked For Death, where after blowing a woman away, the cop went to confession, which is what happens here. As worse timing has it, in steps a nosey woman reporter (B.J. Giordan in her only film) who like our John, has a iron determination, where no surprise, they get sexually involved, after quite an an intense moment, where a few cusses are let off. She earlier dissed him with a newspaper article, over his cowboy antics. Why they are together is a kind of, "I need you, you need me scenario", where a bunch of repellant subterranean psychos, are killing innocent commuters, subway users. The head of this group, Boris, has just been released from a mental facility, and visits his old stomping ground, their underground pad, a empty room off the tracks. He disposes of one of them, right away, in cold blood, a nice CU shot of him, as he does it. UT has moments that are repellent, ridiculous and unbelievable, as there is amateurism about. Most of that ridiculousness were in those hospital scenes. Some of the performances are abysmal, other much better but not great. But I like the story, and it has a good, "working through sticking to story" plot, if suffering moments of predictability. But why I love it, is because of the cool, "throw the book away cop Dougherty". He makes the film work, as his character is very intriguing and watchable, in one of those not half b grade flicks, though is a long way from great. I don't know why this guy hasn't been in more stuff, than he has. Movie could of had a better title though.
