Movie Reviews

Best Action Movie of All Time
Karen Rhyne | 11/12/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is full of action! What makes this movie so great is because not only is it full of action and special effects, but it has a plot that you find yourself believing. And, you will think you are actually there as you watch the movie. This film stars Richard Gere. It's one of those films no one has heard of, but it is outstanding. I was stunned at how good the movie actually was. It's about a teenager who stumbles on a mob execution in progress. From there, the action starts, and never stops. You'll be on the edge of your seat until the end of the movie.This even makes "The Sopranos" come alive in another plot with other players. This means you will love "The Sopranos" even more, and you will find a lot of their shows incorporated into this movie. Get this film! You won't be disappointed!"
A Good Crime Drama
Karen Rhyne | 08/13/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film will arrive with a big picture of Richard Gere on the cover but in reality he has a small part behind the real star of this picture Cliff Gorman. This film like "The Seven-Ups" is based on a original story by Sonny Grosso. The two stories are similar and both films are very good. The story is about a group of three cops forming an unlikely union in a "strike force" against drug dealers. They are blamed for drugs being smuggled right out of their offices and they have to not only bust the leader of the drug orginzation played by Joe Spinell but find the people responsible for the smuggling. The film is about 74 minutes long and I suspect it was made for TV which makes it a remarkable accomplishment for a made for TV movie. I gave this good French Connection like film only 4 stars because the quality of the DVD isnt terribly good but at the price this is selling used it is well worth the 5 to 7 dollars you will pay."
1970s pilot for cop show that never was
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 10/27/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Transfer quality of ECHO BRIDGE (aka Platinum Disc) DVDs is good, although film stock is not always in the best of condition. A bargain price makes these lesser-known public domainers attractive.


STRIKE FORCE
Richard Gere's third film, some two years before his break out performance in LOOKING FOR MR. GOODBAR (1977) is this failed pilot for a French Connection-ish TV show. Lead Cliff Gorman is a NYC cop who teams with the Feds to battle a drug ring.
