Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz
A tawdry exploitation thriller, whose tagline is: “If you’re not a white American, relocate or die.” It’s written and directed as a shocker by Charles T. Kanganis(“Father-Daughter Dance”/”The Grill”/”The Effort”).
It’s set in LA. A white-supremacist skinhead motorcycle gang, into drug dealing, are determined to rid the city of its non-whites. Racist police captain (William Smith) secretly allies with the gang and allows them to operate on his turf. Newly transferred patrol officer (Blake Bahner) uncovers the plot and risks his neck to stop the baddies and save the neighborhood.
Not much of a film, but the action sequences are lively and anything with racial tensions in America is always topical.
