I blacked out from the fumes coming off this thing
In an odd way, this pumped-up stylized made-for-Showtime courtroom political drama manages to still be relevant and (mostly) effective despite feeling very broad and blunt in ways that television from this era usually does. The cast is pretty fantastic too, with good turns from Judd Hirsch, Gregory Hines, F. Murray Abraham and more.
Part Karate Kid rip-off and part underground fighting movie, this has all the elements you want from a ridiculous thriller like this: people too old to be playing high school students, Billy Blanks in the karate teacher role (with a dark past as a disgraced cop who accidentally murdered a teen) and plenty of training montages set to sick instrumental jams featuring saxophones and guitar licks aplenty.
What else do you need?
