The Last Film From Cannon
22 June 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

It's amazing to believe The Cannon Film Company started away back in 1967 . When the company was taken over by the Israeli producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus in 1979 the company became very prolific indeed and people of a certain age can remember frequently sticking a videotape in to a VCR to be greeted by the company logo . The unfortunate thing was that Golan and Globus didn't seem to have a clue as to what a good film was . Some of their output was entertaining such as LIFEFORCE and DEATH WISH 3 but more often than not a Cannon production usually involved grade B exploitation movies with violence , bad language and poor production values . Even the aforementioned films despite being entertaining show examples of deranged film making and aren't much more than guilty pleasures

It's very appropriate that the last film released by Cannon the 1993 production STREET KNIGHT sums up one of their productions A crime lord tries to make over Los Angles by making it ungovernable . He does this by murdering members of Latino and black street gangs who are holding a truce and it's down to former cop Jake Barrett to catch the crime lord before the streets explode in to open warfare

Barrett is played by Jeff Speakman a martial artist which right away gives the impression that Chuck Norris wasn't available , or perhaps wasn't wanting to star in any more Cannon productions because there's only so many pay cheques that can console a film career . It's easy to become bored appearing in yet another Cannon release and it's the same with the audience

Like so many previous films from the company STREET KNIGHT is a rather nasty film . Both the story and characters are merely developed to feature as much violence and bad language as possible to the detriment of everything else . There hardly seems to be a scene where no one is killed or no one is threatened to be killed in the most graphic way and while some people may enjoy 80s exploitation movies the world had moved on in 1993 leaving Cannon behind
