Although released in 1990, this is an ’80s action movie deep in its DNA. The villains are evil and monstrous, the kind of guys who after a heist blow up the entire building behind them to remove witnesses. Dolph Lundren is a cop on the edge with died black hair, which amounts to his characterization. He’s teamed up with a (get ready for it) by the book straight-laced FBI agent, played by Brian Benben because it was 1990. Benben was mostly known for getting to see a lot of actresses naked because he starred in an HBO series.
Anyhoo, it turns out that one of the drug dealers Lundgren is after is a towering alien who had an admittedly neat motive behind his deprivations on Earth. Plus, the film takes place at Christmas!
