Hey guys. I'm new here so I apologize in advance if I do anything wrong but I was out digging through the used DVD's at my local video store when I found this gem. I searched the forum here and didn't see anyone mention it and infact had a hard time even finding it on IMDB.

It is apparently the third in a trilogy, the others being L.A. Heat and L.A. Vice. It stars Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs (most famously Freddie ``Boom-Boom`` Washington on Welcome Back Kotter) as the shoot first, ask questions later cop who is suspended from the force and also Dan Haggerty (Grizzly Mountain 3, Capture of Grizzly Adams) as his former partner who was fired for being a drunk but is now working repossesing cars.

Right from the the opening of the movie I knew I was going to like it. Bad acting, bad music, bad direction, dumb plot and best of all, cheesy one-liners!

The worst thing about the movie would be the character ``Bear``. It is supposed to be a Native American but is played, poorly I might add, by Jastereo Coviare who is clearly black. I don`t know but it seemed kind of racist and offensive to me.

Anyways I higly recommed this movie to any fan of bad 80`s or 90`s action movies. I wish I could post links but it won`t let me for some reason.

Sounds pretty cool. Washington as a cop? Rather poetical.

Thanks for posting the trailer. If you watch, the part where it shows the black guy with the doo rag, that's the Native American character! Yeah, not even close...

At the end of that trailer on YouTube, it has the links for the trailers for "L.A. Heat" and L.A. Vice" which are apparently the first 2 of this trilogy but I have yet to see them. I am definately keeping an eye for them though.

My DVD copy of "Chance" also has a bunch of trailers for movies from PM (mostly Anna Nicole Smith movies) but one trailer really stood out; the trailer for "Repo Jake". I need to see this movie. It's about the sidekick in this movie , Jake (played by Dan Haggerty), and looks like it dives into the story of how he became a repo man, and for some reason in the trailer is racing cars.

And it must be because I don't have enough posts to posts links because I can't even quote the last person. I'm guessing it's to prevent spammers from spamming the forum so I don't mind though.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
