One Man Force (1989)

One Man Force (1989- * * *
Directed By: Dale Trevillion

Starring: John Matuszak, Charles Napier, Sam Jones, Ronny Cox, George "Buck" Flower, Richard Lynch, and Stacey Q

One of the best types of films are of the "Cop On The Edge" variety. You know the ones I'm talking about: The cop gets thrown off the case by his chief and he goes renegade to bring a criminal to justice. The are so many like Cobra (1986), Cop (1988), or Narc (2003). One Man Force is one of the best. Every line is a cliche like ("Get off my back chief!") John Matuszak plays Jake Swan, a no-nonsense cop who doesn't play by the rules, but when his partner is killed, he becomes a "One Man Force" to stop the bad guys. Matuszak puts in a fun performance as Jake. He is supported by excellent character actors Charles Napier,Ronny Cox, and fan favorite Richard Lynch. If you can find a copy, it's definitely one for your collection.

One other thing: The tagline For OMF is as follows: "Jake Swan: Narcotics Detective: 6'8-280 lbs-21" biceps, 55" chest. No one enforces the law like he does!"

Ronny Cox played a good role in "One Man Force".

At Comeuppance Reviews can you please do a review for Ronny Cox's movie "Courage" from 1984 which he starred in and also wrote with his wife. The movie is also known as "Death Run". It is rare to get hold of (I have a VHS copy) but it has now been released on DVD.
