Storyline

Traxx has battled his way through El Salvador, the Middle East and Nicaragua, spitting lead with two-handed good grace. He decides to retire to a life of baking designer cookies. Running out of dough to buy more dough, he hires himself as a "Town Tamer" and begins cleaning up Hadleyville, Texas, telling the lowlife street scum, "You got three choices. Be good, be gone, or be dead." Like all bacteria, the scum are resistant: crime boss Aldo Palucci (Robert Davi) brings in the dreaded Guzik brothers to rid the town of the town tamer, setting the stage for a showdown in the streets.

It's Silly Fun.... 80's Style !
5 December 2003 | by at2ecwSee all my reviews

For anyone to really enjoy this wacky movie...i think you have to be just as wacky. The acting i think is rather good but the movie looks as if they have trimmed it down somewhat. Then again it could be just the budget maybe. Reminds me of Legend when i first seen it..... hmmmmmm LOL . I love this movie as it has some of the funniest moments and lines that you can only hear in it. i won't quote anything from it as this site has everything you need to know about it. If you love movies like loaded weapon...then chance a rental if you can find it. You won't be disappointed !!!
