Storyline

John Bloodstone is a cop who is put on suspension after he uses a blow torch to stop a group of hostage takers. Bloodstone's next assignment begins when his boss, Commissioner Garth, calls him in and introduces him to FBI agent Harrington, and Garth and Harrington assign Bloodstone to transport a mob informant named Marrietta Copella to a new location. Soon after Bloodstone picks Copella up, Bloodstone and Coppella figure out that Garth and Harrington have set them both up to be killed, because Garth and Harrington are afraid Copella will mention their names in his testimony, and Garth thinks Bloodstone is too dangerous and nosy to keep on the force anymore. What Garth and Harrington have forgotten is that Bloodstone carries a pistol that is capable of blowing basketball sized holes into people. Written by Todd Baldridge

CAN YOU SAY BAD? Looks like it was made in the 70's!
20 December 2006 | by (San Antonio, TX, USA) – See all my reviews

All right, I'll admit it. I was channel surfing on the world wide web, and found this playing KCTU, out of Wichita, Kansas. It was late, I was bored, and I stumbled on it during a gun scene near the beginning. This is a completely predictable movie, shoot possibly by some local high school kids! Everything about it just screams "70's B movie", but it was made in 1991! So why did I watch it? After seeing 60 seconds of it, I thought "This movie is BAD, could it get any worse? Yes, it does. It has the same allure of Rocky Horror, your just glued to it.

Bad acting, bad jokes, bad puns, bad sound effects (tires don't squeal on dirt). This has it all. If you like 70's B movies, you've found your winner here. Otherwise, you couldn't pay me $25,000 to watch this movie again (in movie pun there).
