Watch Shakedown - Alternative Versions.
Director James Glickenhaus (The Soldiers, The Exterminator, McBain) has
composed a reasonably well constructed thriller with the usual spectacular
action sequences and an interesting plot. This time though, the strong
performances from the lead stars help propel Shakedown above the usual
mundane low budget films.
Peter Weller (Robocop, Screamers) is excellent as Roland Dalton, a
frustrated attorney who must help defend a troubled youth who has been
accused of murdering a police officer. However, there is more to the scene
of the crime than meets the eye...
Sam Elliot (Road House) is grand as Richie Marks, a rogue police officer who
is always at the wrong place at the right time. Marks and Dalton happen to
form a "buddy-buddy" type bonding, and their investigation eventually leads
knee deep into a conspiracy of corruption, deceit, and murder...
Shakedown is a decent action flick with an intriguing plot with enthralling
plot twists and top notch action sequences. The fist fight aboard a moving
roller coaster is a highlight and the extended vehicle chase through the
streets of Manhattan is another highlight.
What makes Shakedown an exceptional thriller though, is the three
dimensional performances. Peter Weller is definitely the performer worth
watching in Shakedown. His convincing portrayal as a tough lawyer adds an
extra depth of integrity to an otherwise standard "kill or be killed"
actioner. Sam Elliot has his moments too as a cynical renegade cop who
helps Weller expose corruption in the police department.
Shakedown is worth watching just for the high caliber performances from both
Weller and Elliot. The action scenes are worthwhile as well. The only
setback though is these action sequences are used a little too sparesly.
The lack of a breathtaking pace destroys an almost superior thriller.
Otherwise, Shakedown is an adequate film. This movie would benefit greatly
with a faster pace, but the acting from stars Weller and Elliot make
Shakedown a film worth a look.
RATING: **1/2 out of ****.
