Storyline

A young woman named Jennefer regularly beaten and tortured by her boyfriend, gives birth and immediately gives the child up for adoption. This sets her on an escape from the lover on the streets of Toronto. Here she meets a hardened hooker named Ola who takes her in so she won't be arrested for vagrancy. Jennefer then decides to take up hooking to make money and has to learn to fend for herself and to protect herself from a demanding pimp named Hassan. When Hassan kills one of the street girls, it pits him against the others and against a detective out to bust him. Meanwhile, Jennefer's boyfriend, J-Rod, arrives in the city and relentlessly seeks her out to take her back... or kill her. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

"Boulevard" makes the "Angel" (1984) exploitation film seem like Disneyland ...
16 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not since "Ramrod", Wings Hauser, in the ultra violent "Vice Squad" (1982), has a pimp been more memorable than the sadistic "Hassan", played with gusto by Lou Diamond Phillips, in "Boulevard" (1994). This film is the real deal, with Kari Wuhrer playing a small town girl on the run from her abusive boyfriend. Winding up in the Toronto "red light district" , she is befriended by a sympathetic prostitute (Rae Dawn Chong), while being pursued by the pimp and her old boyfriend. Lance Henriksen is a vice detective who tries to keep things from getting out of control on the hooker infested streets. This is without question one of the best exploitation movies dealing with pimps and ho's, and makes something like "Angel" (1984) seem like Disneyland. - MERK
