Fantastic Psychotronic Fun
6 July 2002 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Lethal Force terrifically illustrates the way some talented filmmakers can make the most of a shoestring budget. This inspired satire tackles almost every brand of action film conceivable - espionage, Bruce Lee, blaxploitation, women in prison, modern Hong Kong cinema, and '80s Commando flicks - and compliments its material nicely with spectacular visual flair, and the best action choreography you're likely to ever see in a film of this budget. I'd be doing _Lethal Force_ a disservice if I emphasized the budget too much: this film is as entertaining as any Hollywood fare of its year of release. Filmed mostly in Baltimore, _Lethal Force_ continues Charm City's tradition as a hotbed of subversive film activity, yet approaches camp in its own special way that, with all due respect, owes little to the visionary trash of John Waters.
