Billy Dee Williams,
Jericho "Action" Jackson is a Detroit police sergeant who was demoted from lieutenant for almost tearing the arm off of sexually violent sociopath Sean Dellaplane, whose father is Peter Dellaplane, a major car manufacturer. But Dellaplane himself is violent as well. Dellaplane kills his wife Patrice by shooting her. And then he plants her body in Jackson's apartment, framing Jackson. Dellaplane won't miss Patrice very much, because he has a drug-addicted mistress named Sydney Ash. He keeps Sydney hooked with a free supply of heroin. Jackson suspects Dellaplane of masterminding a murder spree against local officials from the auto workers' union. Dellaplane's mission is to gain a political power base and choose the next president of the United States. Because of what happened to Dellaplane's son Sean, Dellaplane has taken a particular dislike to Jackson. Jackson gets Sydney's help in going after Dellaplane. Written by
Carl Weathers, Bill Duke and Sonny Landham all have roles in this film and in 'Predator'. During a scene where Weathers and Vanity are walking down the sidewalk of a busy street, multiple 'Predator' film posters can be seen on the side of a building. See more »
When Jericho walks up to meet Patrice, and she storms out the door, he says: "Hi, I was just coming to see you!" After "Hi" his mouth barely moves. This is one of many scenes which have extensive ADR. Most of the outdoor scenes or dialogue in cars seem to be dubbed to various degrees. Also, the singing done by Sydney in the club is clearly play-backed. Though this could just be part of her routine. See more »

Great Late 80's Action Film That's A lot Of Fun! Just Check Your Brain At The Door!*Spoilers*
Great late 80's Action Film that's a lot of fun!. The characters were all great, Especially Weather's and Vanity's characters. The Main villain was VERY menacing in Craig T. Nelson he does fabulous here. There is lots of action, and lots of funny one liners from Carl Weathers!. This has been Panned by a lot of people why? it's a lot of fun and i personally enjoyed it a lot!. The Direction is fine. Craig R. Baxley does a fine job keeping the film at a tight pace , cool camera angles and overall he did a good job!. There is a bit of blood and violence. a person gets some bloody cuts on there face from glass, knife in the hand, 2 knives in the chest, arrow in the back, 5 very bloody gunshot wounds, impaling, and someone gets hit by a car graphically. The Acting is great!. Carl Weathers is AWESOME here delivering those one liners like a champ, he had good chemistry with Vanity and overall he just entertained the hell out of me! and was perfect for the part he is an awesome actor and one of my favorites!. (Weathers Rules!). Craig T. Nelson is perfect as The Main villain he is very menacing and did a terrific job overall!. Vanity is GORGEOUS! and did surprisingly very well here i liked her a lot. Sharon Stone is STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS! and does good here too too bad she is rather wasted!. Robert Davi, Ed O'Ross, Mary Ellen Trainor, and Nicholas Worth are all good in there short roles. Overall i highly recommend this for a night of cheesy fun!. ***1/2 out of 5 (Barely)
