Violent film about police corruption and trials , being starred by two good actors
In a town where everyone is for sale , they’re the best that money can buy . A legal attorney (Peter Weller) and a renegade cop (Sam Elliot) join forces to stop corrupt cops and against street scum . The overworked lawyer and the undercover cop team up but find serious difficulties from other corrupt police inspectors (Thomas G Waites) , a drug lord (Antonio Fargas) , dope dealers , and various street scum . Dalton’s life is further complicated by the fact that his girlfriend (Blanche Baker) is pregnant and the prosecuting attorney (Patricia Charbonneau) is a prior lover ; then taking place the classic triangular drama .

This thriller movie contains suspense , noisy action-packed with no much sense , intrigue, and thrills galore . It’s a brutal and controversial urban film plenty of car crashes , pursuits , trials , police corruption and many other things . Sam Elliot with his usual stoic acting displays efficiently his weapon , Magnum 44 , such as ¨Harry the Dirty¨ and killing mercilessly nasties . It’s certainly exciting , though the morality may be questionable , even in this time, as the spectators were clearly on the Sam Elliott side . The movie provides fast and furious entertainment and action with no sense developing with agility , fast paced and movement . This thrilling story looks increasingly passionless and mechanical , though violence sometimes seems to be considered excessive . Nice acting by Sam Elliot as a renegade loner NYPD narcotics agent and Peter Weller as an obstinate advocate at law . Furthermore, it appears a great secondary cast full of known faces with brief interventions , such as Thomas G Waites , Paul Bartel as Night Court Judge , James Eckhouse , Holt McCallany , Kelly Rutherford , David Proval ,John Finn , William Prince , Harold Perrineau ,Shirley Stoler and John C. McGinley . Mediocre cinematography by John Lindley , though he subsequently photographed Field of dreams , You’ve a [email protected] (1998) , Pleasantville , Mr Brooks and other hits . Screeching and pulsing musical score by Jonathan Elias .

This moving motion picture in low budget was middlingly directed by James Glickenhaus , being born in New York City where he usually shoots his movies . Glickenhaus served as the chairman for the film company SGE Entertainment from 1987 to 1995; this company specialized in both making and distributing low-budget independent straight-to-video fare. He’s an expert on violent action movies and so-so films as proved in ¨McBain¨, ¨The soldier¨ and this ¨Shakedown¨ . He’s also directed a Jacke Chan vehicle titled ¨The protector¨ , the eerie thriller “Slaughter of the Innocents,” and the attractive sci-fi romp “Timemaster¨ and of course the extremely violent , low-budgeted and successful 1980 movie , ¨The exterminator¨ , a cruel Vigilante drama . And James was the executive producer for the movies “Maniac Cop,” “Frankenhooker,” both “Basket Case” sequels, “Ring of Steel,” and “Tough and Deadly” . Rating : Average , 5,5/10 but entertaining .

Manages to be daft and serious
Hey! It’s Robocop versus Huggy Bear, with Sam Elliot backing Peter Weller up. When a dodgy undercover cop tries to rob and kill a crack dealer and ends up getting ventilated, it’s up to legal aid guy Peter Weller to get him freed. He’s got many problems, however. The dodgy cop has loads of equally dodgy bad cop mates willing to cover up for him, and the prosecution lawyer type person is his ex-girlfriend. And he’s engaged to be married to a woman who doesn’t like Jimi Hendrix! What’s a Robocop turned robo lawyer to do? Luckily, he’s got Sam Elliot, a straight cop, on his side. Between them, they’re going to clean up New York City of all crooked cops and crack dealers (with the exception of the crack dealer Weller’s trying to free from prison).

This film is kind of all over the place, what with Weller’s marital problems and those bad cops breathing down his neck. He’s also got Huggy Bear (Night of the Sharks) trying to set both him and Ellot up to be killed, which leads to all sorts of action sequences that so increasingly ridiculous you’ll be wondering which one to pick as the daftest moment in the film. Sam Elliott jumping from a fourth floor window onto a bus? Elliot having a punch up on a roller-coaster? Or how about Elliott attacking an aeroplane by jumping onto it’s front wheel and shooting wildly while dangling in the air? That part was pretty stupid, and looked a bit rushed too, as if they were trying to keep the running time down a bit.

That said, it’s moments like those above that keep the film going, or else we’d be bogged down in legal procedure and Weller cheating on his fiancé. Weller and Elliott are both pretty good leads so that helps too.

Also starring John C McGinley of “every film made from 1986-1990” fame
