Marshal McClary, one of the most violent, racist, foul-mouthed Marshals in Texas, is in the middle of resolving a hostage situation (by shooting everyone he sees) when the F.B.I. Agents show up, interfering with his negotiation, and ending the event with McClary being wounded and two of the criminals escaping. After hearing that the two fugitives has fled to Miami, McClary follows behind them, working with the local police and offending every single person he encounters.Written by

As noted above this film borrows from every action film of the last 25 years. It's part Dirty Harry, part Death Wish, part Lonewolf McQuaid and part Terminator 2 (sans robots). The plot is just ridiculous and has so many flaws, but that is what makes the film.
Cole McClary is brilliantly racist homophobic US Marshall. The dialogue throughout the film is just farcical. The scene where he arrives in Miami and meets his new partner (who introduces himself as Don Johnson) is pure comedy gold.
This film taught me lots I didn't know about the US Marshalls and the DEA. For example, DEA agents must have training in the art of ninjitsu. It's acceptable when rading a house to snap the neck of a guard. Speedboats can catch motorbikes. US Marshalls can commit extra-judicial executions. When your drug deal/party is busted, gun down all of your guests. If you're a Marshall, you needn't worry about not reporting the people you kill. That's OK.
A quality film. A definite must for fans of classics such as Death Wish 3.
