Storyline

Williamson plays a cop called 'Soda Cracker', whose partner was killed in a mysterious assassination. He is convinced that the murder was committed by his old enemy, Ivan Moss, played by Bo Svenson. Despite threats from the mob and from the police department, he vows to continue his mission to find the persons responsible for the assassination. Maud Adams plays his new police woman partner, who falls in love with him during their investigations. 'Soda Cracker' also has to deal with the fact that many of the police officers on the squad may be corrupt, and tries to break down the criminal network whilst finding evidence against Ivan Moss.

I'm on your ass 'til you crack! And when you do, I'll be there to blow you straight to hell!
5 April 2009 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Who would have guessed that there was a Fred Williamson picture out there that is not worth watch? Worse yet, he produced and directed it, so he has no one else to blame.

It was a cop picture, and he is after the baddies that killed his partner, so you would expect plenty of action. You would be wrong. It just plods along with nothing special to excite you. Heck, even when Williamson and Maud Adams (the double Bond Girl) get in bed together with a smooth jazz background, the song ends and the scene changes just as they are getting started.

A little action at the end doesn't make up for slow pace for the first hour or so.
