Jericho "Action" Jackson is a Detroit police sergeant who was demoted from lieutenant for almost tearing the arm off of sexually violent sociopath Sean Dellaplane, whose father is Peter Dellaplane, a major car manufacturer. But Dellaplane himself is violent as well. Dellaplane kills his wife Patrice by shooting her. And then he plants her body in Jackson's apartment, framing Jackson. Dellaplane won't miss Patrice very much, because he has a drug-addicted mistress named Sydney Ash. He keeps Sydney hooked with a free supply of heroin. Jackson suspects Dellaplane of masterminding a murder spree against local officials from the auto workers' union. Dellaplane's mission is to gain a political power base and choose the next president of the United States. Because of what happened to Dellaplane's son Sean, Dellaplane has taken a particular dislike to Jackson. Jackson gets Sydney's help in going after Dellaplane.Written by
Both Carl Weathers and Vanity appeared in the music video for this film's theme song, "He Turned Me Out," by the Pointer Sisters. The clip featured the two playing pool in a bar, with Vanity beating Carl handily, as the Pointers sang around them. See more »
When Jericho walks up to meet Patrice, and she storms out the door, he says: "Hi, I was just coming to see you!" After "Hi" his mouth barely moves. This is one of many scenes which have extensive ADR. Most of the outdoor scenes or dialogue in cars seem to be dubbed to various degrees. Also, the singing done by Sydney in the club is clearly play-backed. Though this could just be part of her routine. See more »
Vanity is unbelievably beautiful, and funny, from beginning to end and from stem to stern.
She is matched by golden-blonde Sharon Stone. Both these gorgeous hotties appear topless! And there are many wonderful actors in small roles, including three of the greatest character-actors of the time: Robert Davi, Ed O'Ross, and Nicholas Worth, the terrifying, rubbery-lipped basso who plays Dellaplane's butler.
The screenplay is totally brain-free, written for stoned teenagers. (In this universe, it's EASY to break a heroin-habit!) But the action is hot, the women are sexy, the music is ultra-hip, and the villains are creepy.
Great fun. Royal fun.
