SHAKEDOWN (1988) ***

Peter (Robocop) Weller stars as a lawyer who teams up with a burned out cop played by Sam (Road House) Elliott to take down dirty cops in cahoots with drug kingpin Antonio (Huggy Bear!) Fargas. There’s some great action scenes including a leap off a movie theater and a roller coaster that goes off the tracks. The ending doesn’t really work, but the two leads are fun to watch. Director James Glickenhaus also directed the demented The Exterminator, which is shown playing on a marquee. There’s also a great look at 42nd Street in the 80’s and a scene in which a smoking plane goes down near the WTC.
