Wild combo of clichéd cop actioner and sex melodrama with lead male doing a serious Eddie Murphy
High production values help this macho mish-mash of cliché-ridden cop action and sex melodrama, in full tilt Spanish style. It begins with brooding, grumpy, tough, cop (Noriega) dropping Euros into Gorgeous Babe 1 (a whore)'s bum crack, in payment for services rendered. Then he prevents some Arab women from being terrorised by bikers, when he knocks them off their bikes and puts one of them in a wheelchair - for which he is suspended. His detective colleague, Gorgeous Babe 2, tries to talk sense into him, but he flounces off, and returns to his home town, where his younger brother. a sweet simpleton (also Noriega) is now working in a high-class brothel, and engaged to its hottest babe (Gorgeous Babe 3). Cop fancies Babe 3, and their dad's new young wife (GB4)..It's all pretty ridiculous, but well made - if you like a very rich chocolate cake, laced with aguardiente.
