Fun garbage
2 August 2015 | by zetesSee all my reviews

This DTV flick is an amusing if generic crime/action movie. It reminds me of the kind of crap I used to watch on late night HBO or Cinemax. "Rowdy" Roddy Piper stars as an undercover cop who works in "Jungleground," an area of the city that is so crime-ridden no cop or normal human being would dare enter it after dark. At night, it's run by a gang known as the Ragnorockers, who, of course, are led by a guy named Odin (JR Bourne). There are also gangsters named Thor and Loki, and also a teenage boy on rollerblades called Gameshow, who spouts game show catch phrases before he opens fire. Being a 90s action movie, expect a lot of uzis and explosions. Piper is captured by the Rockers but escapes. They also have his girlfriend (Torri Higginson), so he has to search for her with the help of a young prostitute (the absolutely adorable Rachel Wilson). The production and costume design are quite good. I loved the look of the Rockers.
