When it becomes too violent at the Double Deuce road house, the club owner hires Dalton, a professional head bouncer, to clean it up.
But Dalton's early successes and budding romance with the local doctor enrages Wesley, the town crime boss.
When Dalton continues to defy him, the stage is set for a dramatic confrontation that will test Dalton's limits and decide the fate of the town.....
What you have to realise before you see this movie, is the fact that it's was made in 1989' it starred an oiled Patrick Swayze, who was known by teenage girls at that time as 'The Swizzle', produced by the greatest producer of the eighties Joel Silver, and directed by a man called Rowdy Herrington.
And it's the biggest load of cobblers released that year, but boy, is it a lot of fun.
Swayze is great as Dalton, with trousers right up to his pecs, and a mullet that is tighter than his jeans. He warns people before he starts, and is always nice, but this film has at least an action scene every five minutes, despite Dalton's rules.
Gazzara is hilarious as the villain, and threatens the town by letting them know that if it wasn't for him, they wouldn't have a photo processing booth in the town......very sinister.
The acting is corny, Sam Niell pops up just to make the film that little bit cooler, features one of the most abhorrent henchmen, (" I used to **** guys like you in prison), and if it was made today, it would be cut to shreds, because there is so much nudity going on, its unbelievable.
So all in all its a funny treat. The type of film which features a monster truck, and any film that features a monster truck has to crush a number of cars.
Plus it's the greatest film ever made about a stuffed Polar Bear falling on a henchman who could have easily stepped out of the way.
