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.

Are YOU Fast on the DRAW?
10 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film caught me off guard when it started out in a Cafe located in Arizona and a Richard Grieco,(Rex),"Dead Easy",'04, decides to have something to eat and gets all hot and bothered over a very hot, sexy waitress. While Rex steps out of the Cafe, he sees a State Trooper and asks him,"ARE YOU FAST?" and then all hell breaks loose in more ways than one. Nancy Allen (Maggie Hewitt),"Dressed to Kill,",'80, is a TV reporter and is always looking for a news scoop to broadcast. Maggie winds up in a hot tub and Rex comes a calling on her to tell her he wants a show down, Western style, with the local top cop in town. This is a different film, however, Nancy Allen and Richard Grieco are the only two actors who help this picture TOGETHER!
