Another dilemma of a movie for Ponyboy Howell
5 August 2014 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

Here's just another bunch of crap to add to C Thomaas's resume. Really, he doesn't really care about how he acts in this one. He just plays Mr super cool "Hey, check me out" cop, as if trying to showcase himself. Honestly I thought this came out later than Desperate Measures, where it hit the shelf later than the Keaton killer flick. Desperate Measures is gold, a real film compared to this. As seeing DM first, with this one, it was just going through the motions, as knowing what was coming next. The story has been adjusted a little but if this was made before the other mainstream hit, it would be wrong of me to say it. How it opens with a stakeout, Howell posing as a drunk, cracked me up. A dying girl needs a bone marrow transplant from mean dude prisoner, Rudy Salazar (Danny Trejo) who honestly should rise above doing this junk, and this is what this film is. He agrees to partake in the operation, and you know why, where soon guns are blazing and fury's rising. Here's the real dilemma. Howell on a personal note wants to take out Trejo, where the other cops have been ordered to take em' in alive. Dilemma is just really entertaining junk, that's nicely wrapped up in the end. Honestly, look at this more as a comedy, as you'll be rewarded better. It's just another forgettable "something to make flick", void of substance, no quality pic, that should of been picked of, or more correctly, UNNECESSARY JUNK, for laughter and cheap entertainment value, for which, I'm humbly grateful.
