RICOCHET (1991) ***

Denzel Washington busts John Lithgow and becomes a celebrated cop and eventually Assistant D.A. Lithgow goes to prison, has an insane gladiatorial death match with Jesse “The Body” Ventura, escapes, and fakes his own death. He concocts an elaborate scheme against Denzel. He kills Denzel’s friend, implicates him in child pornography, drugs him, pays a hooker to give him the clap (!!!), and eventually gets him fired. Denzel calls on homeboy Ice T to lay the smackdown on him. This Joel Silver produced revenge thriller goes that extra mile to be more down and dirty than a lot of others in the genre. Co-written by Fred (Night of the Creeps) Dekker. Directed by Russell (Highlander) Mulcahy.
