Storyline

Joe Dylanne is a plainclothes NYC cop with a badge... and a robust personality. He always resorts to unconventional methods in order to capture the city's slickest criminals. When Dylanne receives a message from Katy, an old sweetheart of his, the news is not as pleasant as he anticipated. Rather, it is an imperative call for help. Dylanne must swing into full action. This cop must travel to a remote location in the northwest in order to investigate the disappearances of his friend's relatives. It turns out that most of Kate's relatives have been murdered in cold blood. The only survivor of the slaughter is Joshua, an angst-ridden survivalist who explains to Dylanne about a sophisticated plan implicating marijuana plant growers. Dylanne and Joshua must trespass enemy territory in the name of revenge... Written by David Choi <KDaDDyChOi@aol.com>

Great 80's movie
26 September 2008 | by sasquatchismyheroSee all my reviews

OK, for those of you who love 80's movies, this is the movie for you. Sure it is ridiculous, but that is the point. This movie has a hilariously awesome plot, an awesome opening scene, its extremely explosive when it needs to be, and its from the 80's. If that description doesn't do it for ya, I don't know what will. If you haven't seen this movie, you really need to. Even if you think you will hate it, this movie needs to be seen by all. This movie is right up there with C.H.U.D., so if you want a laugh or some inspiration, watch this movie. Personally, it is one of my top 20 favorite 80's movies, mainly because of the action in it.
