Storyline

Headed towards Hollywood, Rex is the "fastest fun in the West" --before long, he has a trail of dead policemen in his wake. Meanwhile, hard-drinking cop John Shepard is suddenly in the news after killing one of L.A.'s most notorious drug dealers in a shoot out. Word reaches Rex, who vows to challenge Shepard once he hits Los Angeles. In a final showdown as tense as high noon battles, Shepard and Rex come face to face.

Mancuso's extremely watchable
27 July 1999 | by (Vancouver, WA USA) – See all my reviews

While surfing, I got hooked about mid-way thru the opening credits. Low-budget, yes -- but full of neat twists. Nick Mancuso is wonderful as a burnt-out cop, smoking, drinking, snarling at authority. Richard Geico looks like a beefy Mickey Rourke, spiky hair and all, and makes a good heavy. Both keep their characters and the story spinning.... One of the best things: no stopping action for sex (just watch Mancuso turn down a former lover).
