A GREAT film, though ruined by Liberals!
7 June 2014 | by (FLA-United States) – See all my reviews

I got a real kick out of EXTREME JUSTICE, but I knew right off that Lou Diamond Phillips' and his girlfriend's characters were going to screw, it up, and sure enough; they DID! I liked the way the SIS squad got rid of criminals and saved the taxpayer's a ton of money in the process, but that stupid reporter just couldn't bear to see criminals not getting their rights coddled, and her liberal cop boyfriend just HAD to F**K it up, and that's just what they did! I just don't see how people, even movie characters, think like those fools did. Imagine a world where criminals actually got punished for the crimes they commit! Tell that to that idiot reporter and her equally idiotic cop boyfriend. A GREAT film, except for those two bozos!
