Alternate Versions

US VHS and Code Red DVDs are the edited R-rated versions which trims a few violent scenes- the guy getting stabbed in bed(and the scene where his dead body is discovered) the guy getting killed in the restroom was cut to remove his head being bashed against the toilet along with a close up of his dead body, a shot of one of the killers in a pool of blood and a slight edit to Silk shooting the other killer in the shoulder. Code Red Blu-Ray and the German DVD are both completely uncut. See more »

Honolulu-based female cop with cleavage seeks male viewers.
9 July 2000 | by Wilbur-10See all my reviews

This is a low-budget effort about a maverick female cop who single-handedly fights crime and corruption, playing by her own rules (a la Dirty Harry). Set in Honolulu, the film opens with Silk thwarting a robbery with her trusty handgun, as she blasts numerous machine-gun toting bad guys.

Everything about the film is poor, but its difficult to totally dislike a film which is so blatant about its limitations and lack of originality. Cec Verrell as Silk is a statuesque, macho looking female lead, always wearing low-cut vests, with a body to die for - similar to Brigette Nielsen in Rocky IV. Film plays like a sub-standard tacky mid-70's American cop TV series, but it is mildly entertaining for the masochistic viewer.

Great video cover with Silk standing in full Rambo pose, with slicked back hair, denim jacket with turned up collar, firing a HUGE phallic machine gun.
