The LA police department have a special team of officers with a talent for reducing big-time crime. The team leader has an excellent track record for crime reduction in other big cities, but his methods are unconventional, and so is he - he's a werewolf. Written by
I just borrowed this on VHS and I'm regretting the effort of carrying it home. I still have to return it, although the lender seemed suspiciously keen to see it leave his house. Hmmmmmmmm.
Van Peebles is no Chow Yun Fat, and his lame attempts at flying two gun action had me in hysterics. I was hoping a truck would hit him when he did a totally unnecessary barrel roll in the middle of a busy street. Patsy Kensit is her usual minging talentless redfaced self, but with an American accent straight out of the Doris Day school of gangsterism. Harrrrrrrrd!
The rip and shred action in the drug lab was OK, despite the lack of any convincing slashing or arterial spray. Everything else seemed to be a bit half-hearted. The long distance night vision massacre was lameness on a stick. The full on giant hairy wolfman only showed up for about a minute in total, and it struck me as a bit cheap to assume that some rubber fangs and pointy knuckle extrusions were somehow indicative of extreme lupine behaviour. For its day, it might have seemed like a clever way to burn a few million dollars, but Troma do it gorier, funnier, and more knowingly for a fraction of that.
The white wolf in the zoo effortlessly outperforms the entire cast. I'm sure I heard it begging to be put down.
