Solid Film
16 December 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Jeff Powers(Lou Diamond Phillips) works for the LAPD.

He joins and elite and secret division called S.I.S

At first everything is going great for Jeff he is working with his former partner and leader of the S.I.S Dan Vaughn(Scott Glenn)

Jeff's Girlfriend Kelly Daniels(Chelsea Field) is a reporter and she knows there is something not right about S.I.S but she doesn't know what, since she can't dig up much on them for the fact that most of what they do is kept a secret only a little info is known on them.

This elite force targets the more important criminals some of whom the LAPD has been unable to bust due to lack of evidence.

They let the crimes happen then make the bust, but the bust always ends up in murder.

This doesn't sit well with Jeff, but Vaughn talks his way of out it.

While chasing after a criminal Dan Vaughn kills the guy in cold blood, Jeff sees this happen, and this time no matter what Vaugn says there is no talking out of it.

So Jeff with the help of his girlfriend is out to bring the S.I.S down.

Extreme Justice is a B-Movie but i am into those type of films so i did enjoy it.

Lou Diamond Phillips is one of my fav actors and does a fine job here, not his best see La Bamba for that, but Lou Diamond still puts in a solid performance.

Most of the cast is made up famous B-Movie actors, some of who have also made mainstream films.

The Cast includes Andrew Divoff and Yaphet Kotto who along with the rest of the cast of the film do a good job.

Director Mark L. Lester who was Director of the Cult Classic Class of 1999 does a good job here, some of Lester's films are hit or miss this time around a hit.

If you're a fan of B-Movies and or Lou Diamond Phillips Extreme Justice is worth a check.

I give Extreme Justice 7/10
