Storyline

After a daring robbery of a jewelery store, the thieves accidentally let their loot fall into the unsuspecting hands of repo man and secret alcoholic Zach. When the crime lord behind the heist learns of the whereabouts of his diamonds, he instructs his thugs to find Zach and get the jewels back by any means possible. Zach gets help from his friend, police detective Chance, but they will both need more than a little luck to prove that neither of them were behind the robbery, and to keep the actual thieves from getting their revenge.

LHJ RETURNS!

Lawrence Hilton Jacobs is back and badder than ever in the final installment of the Chance series. Good news for fans of the series, LHJ brought along his sneer and flaring nostrils and uses them with brute force! If you like being tortured by this nonsense, as I do, try L.A. Heat or L.A. Vice. Then you can try and figure out which one hurt your brain more!

I can't end the review without mentioning Dan Haggerty's appearance in the film. He's in it. There, I mentioned it. Long live Jastereo Coviare who plays the ever disturbing (unintentionally)Bear. I personally feel this character needs a spin-off series.
