Judge, Jury.. and executioner! Hell yeah!
12 February 2009 | by KnatLouieSee all my reviews

Okay, so what we have here is a nice little B-movie with some ridiculous casting-decisions, an over-the-top-of-the-top bad guy who likes cross-dressing and looking like a bozo (literally), and a pre-fame Thomas Ian Nicholas (from "American Pie") with long wavy hair and cool posters of Martin Kove on his bedroom wall (where can I get those??)! That kid is so rad, apart from the fact that Martin Kove in this movie plays his dad! I mean, seriously.. who the hell has a GIANT poster of their own DAD hanging on the wall?? But anyway, he tears it down after his parents has an argument, so it's a good plot-piece (i.e. the kid losing faith in his dad, and thus removes every idolizing image he has of him in his room).

Anyways, back to the plot: David Keith (NOT to be mistaken by Keith David, who is one helluva cool guy) plays this maniacal homicidal lunatic biker-type, Joseph Meeker, who gets arrested during a stick-up, where his girlfriend Mary (played by Patricia Scanlon, who we all know from her other movies where she plays memorable parts like "Woman from Brooklyn", "Cocktail Waitress" and "Stoned Customer") accidentally gets killed, after they both needlessly had offed a few people themselves.

So after getting arrested by Detective Lockhart (Paul Koslo, The Omega Man, Joe Kidd, etc.), he wows revenge from beyond the grave on all those who captured him and killed his girlfriend - i.e. Detective Lockhart and family-man/football-star Michael Silvano, who is played the ever-so-lovable Martin Kove, who we all know as the bad-ass John Kreese from the "Karate Kid"-movies, as well as from "Rambo II" and "Death Race 2000", where he also played bad-ass "shoot-first, think later"-type characters.

Okay, so after Meeker's execution, where he talked about "getting some pussy" to a priest and did other obscene things, he somehow returns from the dead, and haunts Silvano's family, chasing him and his buddies around for about 3/4 of the movie. Oh yeah, somehow Meeker has a shotgun which shoots exploding fireballs (that for some reason have no effect on whoever gets hit by them)! And he wears about a dozen of ridiculously redundant costumes while making quite a few memorable quotes (none of which have been added here yet - and I don't really feel like it at the moment)..

Highlight cameos: Kelly Perine plays this unfortunate homeless cab-driver who gets hijacked by Silvano, and then decides to tag along for the rest of the movie (big mistake), and also a short cameo by the fantastic Bob Minor (who always plays this big ass-kicking black dude) as a pool-playing biker, who happens to hang around in the wrong bar at the wrong time.

Verdict: Guilty of the charges of being a hilariously bad B-movie, full of ridiculous dialogue and tons of badly scripted (and filmed) scenes, which should make the viewer roll on the floor laughing, rather than cowering behind the sofa, which was probably intended by the makers of this movie. Good bad stuff. 6/10
