Serene and laconic, yet powerful and lethal, Dalton is an expert in martial arts and the best professional bouncer in the business. With such a reputation, Dalton is summoned in a small town in Missouri to clean up the sleazy bar called The Double Deuce from the troublemakers who terrorize the customers, without knowing, however, that the villainous local entrepreneur, Brad Wesley, wants things to remain unchanged. As Dalton cleans up the nightclub, and with it, the town from Wesley's hired goons, a deep wound from a knife will inspire a passionate affair with local Dr. Elizabeth "Doc" Clay. Now, the corrupt Wesley has enough reasons to take Dalton out of the way, nevertheless, the bouncer has the final say.Written by

The sequel features just a handful of references to Dalton, but the central character is Dalton's son as an adult. See more »

The dialog, story and acting in this are so cliched that I believe it is a parody of action movies. Others believe it is a straight action movie gone horribly wrong. Whatever the intentions, this movie is very entertaining and very, very stupid. I love it, superior in every way to Sophie's Choice.
