Plot:

Vengeance drives a tough Detroit cop to stay on the trail of a power hungry auto magnate who’s systematically eliminating his competition.

Review:

This was a Christmas gift to my husband so naturally I had to watch it. I was pleasantly surprised by how good this was. Apparently Carl Weathers wanted to make a “modern day” blaxploitation film and this was it. I enjoyed the racial diversity and all the people set on fire.

Also, Sharon Stone and Vanity titties.

Actually seeing Vanity in the movie reminded me of The Last Dragon which then caused me to read her Wikipedia entry, which was interesting.

Carl Weathers was great. There was some kind of weird sculpture in the background of his apartment. Crag T. Nelson played a good bad guy, but a bad action bad guy.

4/5
