Editorial Reviews

Hardcore New York City cop Joe Dylanne (James Remar, The Warriors, Sex and the City) is out of the city and in the middle of a nightmarish death trap in this action-packed thriller! When former girlfriend Kate (Daphne Ashbrook, The O.C.) calls in desperation, Joe travels to a deceptively quiet Northern California town to investigate the disappearance of her brother and sister-in-law. He learns from Kate's nephew, Joshua, that the two were brutally murdered by a ruthless ring of marijuana growers. Determined to seek his revenge, Joshua is engaged in a one-man guerrilla war against the thugs. But when Kate is killed in the crossfire, Joe and Joshua join forces for a final explosive confrontation that only one side can win! From an electrifying motorcycle chase through the subways of New York to a shattering climax deep in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, Quiet Cool roars hellbent for action... and revenge!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes its good quiet its not July 5, 2009
Great 80's action flick. Think of Patrick Swayze in this role and you get the idea. Remar was probably third or fourth choice but he was good in the lead. This is a great grade B movie all the way. Just love the feel and look of the movie. Love it!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Historic Santa Cruz-area location March 27, 2013
Unremarkable grade B action flick, but the only movie ever shot at Beulah Park Conference Center, a former religious campground between Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley. For local history buff completists, it's worth spending a couple of bucks.

This summer camp of the Church of the Nazarene was established in 1938 on 24 acres above Carbonera Creek, between Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley, and a "tabernacle" was erected in 1941. It was sold to a group of local doctors as investors in the early 70's. The survivors of the original group still hold title, though very little has been done to the property and the back cabins that were built on a steep and narrow ridgetop are melting and sliding into a surreal, Daliesque oblivion. Beulah Park was the site of the largest building in Santa Cruz County, a huge quonset hut-style structure that was destroyed in the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good flick! March 13, 2007

I saw this back when it first came out and recently bought it after finding out it was on dvd. It has that typical 80's vibe to it, but it is a good movie. James Remar is actually a good guy in this one! Check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars FIRST MOVIE WITH JAMES REMAR AS A GOOD GUY! April 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie in the late 1980's and it was not too bad. I was surprised to find out who was in charge of the drug operation at the end. The music was pretty good and so was some of the action. I like the bar scene with Remar and that fat jerk, that was kind of funny! Oh, the lead actor James Remar was on 48 Hrs and the Rennassiance Man with Danny Devito. It's just hard to picture James Remar as the good guy, because he has always played the bad guy one movies...kind of like John Travolta's action movies.

Little seen action film with James Remar taking revenge on the pot growers who killed his girlfriend and her family. He teams up with her brother and takes them out. Worth seeing for the good action scenes, ruthless villians, terrific music score, and a very unusual setting in a forest town in northern California. Watch out for the motorcycle vs. rollerskate chase in the beginning of the film and the catchy title tune at the end of the film.

One city cop goes to a rural area to locate a missing person, only to find himself trapped in a small village controlled by a force of drug related problems. Inocent people are murdered by the outlaw group, and this police officer from the city finds himself taking on the entire outlaw group who answers to one person named "THE MAN" who's identity isn't revealed until the end of the movie when the charactor of "THE MAN" is shot and killed by someone other than the cop. I highly recomend this movie to anyone who enjoys watching police action movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated action gem July 7, 2006
Where to begin? James Remar as a good guy? From the moment he picked up his barbell and did one press before throwing it down in conclusion, I knew this was a different kind of action film. It doesn't have the rhythm of most shoot em ups. Remar's character, while definitely a hero, endures a lot of physical abuse before acheiving a victory. And you will never guess who the main heavy is. It's almost as if we are discovering the secrets of this crime ring along with Remar. I am really glad this is finally coming out on DVD. Aren't you?
