| An addictive watch
This Hauser vehicle, no doubt directed by the master himself, who had already brought out the entertaining and sick "The Art Of Dying", has brought another entertaining flick, surprisingly long but surprisingly entertaining. There are some unintentional laughs and a nice set of bouncing boobies, near it's start, but on the whole, this not bad so cop drama, being a little amateurish at times (hey, but that's what makes B movies fun) may give you a high, as is the new killer drug represented by the movie. Hauser also starring, is right where we want him, a veteran cop, again cool and likable. We've have two young rookies, stealing the limelight, one a kind of William Baldwin lookalike, who starred, by not for long, in the other Hauser vehicle. He's a real smart arse, cocky, and very likable, where his Latino partner and buddy, a more serious cop, is showing a lot of potential in the department, and doesn't want to be brought down by his sidekick. These two provide most of the laughs in the flick. Violence is occasional here, if very seldom, but effective, an early scene seeing one cop who I really liked it, lose it. Even the best stress. It's our nice little unit of likable cops, versus the real nasty baddies in a b grade, which can only be described as bl..dy entertaining, and not bad, especially as the movie progresses. This one actually surprised me to be honest, where we spend more time with the cops, and really get into their troubles, but mainly I'm talking about our two young punks, the Latino overacting which gave cause for laughs. It as also fun, watching the young cocky punk, clashing with Hauser. We also see the drug up close, and it's effect on one buyer. Hauser fans, a definite watch.
