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.

User Review:

Nazi_Fighter_David » Action is a proud man, a high-school track star, a dedicated cop, a sergeant who lost his lieutenant's stripes almost two years ago…

He jostles a conceited, two-faced, backstabbing mass murderer called Peter Dellaplane (Craig T. Nelson). Director Craig R. Baxley has not only carried it off, but makes you believe it… One must also give some of the credit to Carl Weathers whose erect muscular body and his charm and good looks give some credence to the heroics…

The picture contains fun, lots of action, and two sexy women…

Vanity looked so gorgeous when she was shot up with heroin…

Stone met her husband after his first wife died and his son went to prison… She thinks that he may seem greedy and arrogant but he remained loved by everyone, and the whole experience changed him… She also thinks that Jackson is not so different from her husband, that both are stubborn, and both intent on getting what they want…
