Sam "Remember Flash Gordon?" Jones stars as a martial arts expert/cop who is brought in by a mysterious cop (John Saxon) who gets the three toughest cops (Jones, Sherrie Rose and Jason Lively) to take down mobster Richard Lynch who has corrupted the town in his deals with prostitution, drugs and all that jazz. Lots of shootouts occur. You have to love PM and their consistent goal to provide action movies of such stupid magnitude yet ultimately diverting. In Maximum Force we get what could be a blue print in making a low budget guilty pleasure obscurity. With any C.movie you have to have talent across the board to keep it interesting. You have Sam Jones as your token stardom eluding leading man (He was Flash Gordon for goodness sake!) and you also have the washed up old fogies who have seen better days. In this case this category extends to Mickey Rooney, John Saxon and Richard Lynch as all of them act only for the paycheck involved. Then of course you have the never was actors such as Sherrie Rose and Jason Lively who basically never went on to do anything big or ever hit it big. You combine this list of talent and then plug in some high energy action set-pieces and you have Maximum Force, quite possibly the greatest C.movie ever made. Also add in a shot of the admittedly sexy Sherrie Rose in a thong and you have the textbook of how to make a movie that people enjoy at 2 am.
