"... When I saw that Jennifer O'Dell was not among the stars named on the cover, despite being pictured, I half expected this to be a token few seconds part like the one she did in Sometimes They Come Back For More.Fortunately she is one of the main characters, with more screen time than Angie Everhart who does get a main billing. Although she, usually, wears more than her character in The Lost World she's still very sexy and provides possibly the only good reason to see the film.In some ways, the plot could seem complicated but it plays as though it's very thin.A biker steals drugs and money from his gang, killing several in the process. His girlfriend (O'Dell) runs off with a rich talent scout to escape his jealousy and abuse, accidentally taking the bag containing the stolen goods. To get back the drugs and kill her new boyfriend the biker kidnaps her epileptic sister (Everhart) and offers a trade. After a few chases and much violence the good guy wins and walks off in to the sunset with the girl.An interesting piece of casting was Zach Galligan as the biker's sidekick. I can only recall him playing the good guy in Gremlins so it seemed strange to see him as a vicious thug.I rated this 4 stars because it gives me what I wanted, a lot of Jennifer O'Dell, and will get partially rewatched a number of times. I couldn't really recommend it for anyone looking for quality in script or filming."

"Let Me give you the lowdown; I enjoy watching bad movies sometimes. But this one, no. It wasn't obscure or odd, and ultimately not fun to watch. The dialouge (if it even deserves to be called that) is dull at best. The characters are almost as bland as the action scenes, action scenes in wich are impossible to watch without a heavy sigh and a roll of the eyes. I'd prefer a little creativity over special effects any day. I've truly made more creative feature length films in my old high school.
One of the more tedious elements is the dramatic scenes; some of which have been almost identically lifted from the classic "Mean Streets". Strip Club scenes are added merely to keep the audience awake. The 'Dice' Man is in this movie, which is of course a good thing, but his character isn't given enough to do. I don't have respect enough to mention the protagonist or villian, for they are both banal and unwatchable. Ice-T is quite miserable in this movie, I suppose he enjoys making fun of himself. Stick with Law and Order SVU, PLEASE! (he's ACTUALLY preety good in that!)
Oh, and one more thing: I was shocked and appalled to see that Angie Everheart actually made it through the entire movie clothed!"
