Remake of a 1981 Porno film TRINITY BROWN!
14 April 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

No review books or Cult Movie books ever mention this, so I will let the cat out of the bag on this one. This is a remake of a 1981 adult film called "trinty Brown" (starring John Leslie/Sharon Kelly). They once advertised this to be a Michael Pare lead action film, then a year later Reb Brown was supposed to replace Pare. But finally the finish the film and it stars ex-leading man turned supporting actor Alex Cord, in his first lead in longtime! The film did change some of the plot lines to make it run longer than the original adult film script, but it's just another standard unrated direct to video cop film. If you want to see sex and "B" movie action, this is your film. But it's good to see Alex Cord in a lead. I wasn't going to review this, but I wanted to be the first to point this remake fact out.
