Storyline

On their way back from a conference, two medical school friends bump into a college cheerleaders contest in Oregon. Party animal Patrick Fisher insists on going until his buddy concedes to 'one beer', but dutiful Steve Hillman is the one who gets seduced by local Amber. Alas it's a trap; he gets robbed and her lover, Bo Cooper, beats him up and abuses him. Disgusted with himself Bo shoots himself - his father is the local sheriff. He has a terrible corrupt hold over the town and sets the boys up as wanted 'killers'. Only Steve's girlfriend and local paranoid civil rights-obsessed loner Olie Parks will still help them to contact the already suspicious FBI. Written by KGF Vissers

" A Breakneck Yarn Of Redneck Cops And Cheerleaders " ...
5 August 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

... that`s what it said on the info button of my remote control and this intrigued me because what sort of madmen think they can make " A breakneck yarn of redneck cops and cheerleaders " ? Well director Richard Gale and co-writer Craig Brewer think they can .

As you`d might expect with " A breakneck yarn of redneck cops and cheerleaders " PRESSURE is rubbish . It includes many dumb situations involving logic , characterisation and stereotyping . Actually stereotyping is the thing that stuck out in my mind as the cops here are as you`d expect in a rural American state - Inbred , inter related and a bigger menace to society than any local criminal , a sort of cross between the drill instructor from FULL METAL JACKET and the pig fetish freaks from DELIVERANCE. But I also wish to say credit where it`s due because despite ludicurous and very dumb PRESSURE is a fairly entertaining movie and even though Richard Gale and Craig Brewer are very possibly mad for wanting to do " A breakneck yarn of redneck cops and cheerleaders " I never felt like switching the TV off . Let`s hope they don`t get stopped for speeding by state troopers on a lonely road
