According to an article of the LA Times in 1992, the producers of EXTREME JUSTICE were the subject of intense surveillance by the Special Investigation Section during the making of the film. See more »
In the beginning, there is a party where the crew of cops target shoot some beer bottles. One cop lines up 5 empty bottles, but the other cops shoot 12 bottles half-filled with beer. See more »
Like a TV cop show with a little more violence; routine script, solid cast.
In a plot strikingly similar to that of Eastwood's "Magnum Force", "Extreme Justice" deals with cops that take the law into their own hands and execute criminals in cold blood. The blurring of the line between law and justice, and between vigilantism and paranoia, is done here more efficiently than it was in "Magnum Force", so the movie holds your interest, despite the routine on all other accounts script and Mark Lester's unimaginative direction. The entire male cast is solid, but Chelsea Field is unconvincing as the hotshot reporter. (**)
