Product Description

St Joy (Ron Perlman) and his band of highly-trained terrorists are in the process of stealing a dangerous biological weapon when an earthquake rocks the city, causing them to become trapped in the building. Trapped alongside them are the innocent Julie (Erika Eleniak) and FBI agent Alex McKay (Wolf Larson), a man dedicated to eradicating the terrorist threat. As fighter planes circle overhead, awaiting the order to engulf the area in a nuclear conflagration, Julie and Alex race against time to prevent St Joy from triggering his deadly acquisition.

From the Back Cover

A highly trained terrorist cell led by the fanatic St. Joy (Ron Perlman) invades the high security bank seeking a stolen biological weapon of apocalyptic effect. Suddenly an immense earthquake shakes Los Angeles trapping Julie and the criminals inside, as aftershocks rip through the city. Julie finds herself cut off from any outside aid. Except a lone undercover FBI agent Alex McKay (Wolf Larsen) trapped with her. Overhead F16 jets circle the city ready to incinerate the deadly virus in a nuclear fireball, awaiting the authorisation of General Wolf (Fred Dryer). Now Julie and Alex are all that stand between the terrorists and their deadly goal. A biological nightmare even worse than the earthquake tearing the city asunder.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Rumble in the Rubble ... 13 July 2002
By Helen Chavez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Welcome to B-movieland!! For that's what Shakedown unfortunately turns out to be. Billed as a disaster/bank heist/raving loony-type-terrorist kindova of movie, poor Shakedown doesn't really succeed at being anything at the end of the day but a bit of a mish-mash.
The cast isn't bad though, with a nice well-rounded performance by the good-humoured Wolf Larsen and Erika Eleniak doing her best to keep up, the action trips along very nicely, thank you very much.
But the real star of the movie is Ron Perlman, whose scene-chewing performance as the deadly-dangerous religious nut St Joy steals every scene he is in. In a part that could be hammed to death, Perlman plays it straight - and turns in a creepy, chilling performance that is waaaaay too good for a film like this. If the producers could have put him in every scene the result would have been a godsend in a film full of stock footage and very shaky (if you'll excuse the pun) CGI work.
But if you like lots of maniacal gunfire, a nonsensical plot and some pretty personable acting, then Shakedown may just be the film for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOTHING NEW BUT SHAKES!!!! 7 Oct 2004
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Director Brian Katkin delivers an over the top action thriller, that not only has a devastating earthquake, but a bank robbery and a mad religious fanatic set to release the deadly Pandora virus on the world because his son was killed in an FBI raid. While the CGI earthquake effects are far from great, the movie's fierce pacing and some neat performances from Ron Perlman, Erika Eleniak and Wolf Larson combine to make this a lot better than it should have been. There's so much chaos going on it's hard to keep up with. What's really "amusing" is that even after the earthquake all but levels the bank, the robbers, SWAT team and terrorists continue shooting like nothing happened.

Far-fetched and implausible, SHAKEDOWN nevertheless delivers an earthshattering experience!
3.0 out of 5 stars When you like your viruses shaken not stirred. 30 Dec 2004
By Tressa L. Breen - Published on Amazon.com
An average tv movie quality, totally formula story of religious fanatic (Ron Perlman, who gives good "I'm not just the President of 'Psychos R Us,' I'm also a client")who gets control of a biochemical virus (think the virus from the movie "The Rock"). Too bad for him that he also gets stuck in a bank building during an earthquake with the government agents trying to stop him (led by the impressively physiqued, mildly entertaining Wolf Larson, backed by Fred Dryer) along with the standard "in the wrong place at the wrong time" spunky female (the forever bland Erika Eleniak) and "lived as a wimp but died as a hero at the last minute" male (Brandon Karrer). Has the standard background story to give sympathy to the religious fanatic (wife and son killed in a police raid a few years previous). Basically a decent rainy day movie.

Favorite line, spoken by Ron Perlman after he finds the vial of the virus hidden in Erika Eleniak's cleavage: "A woman and her mystery."
