    Peter Weller and Sam Elliott blast their way through the underbelly of New York as they team up to get to the bottom of a police corruption scandal in this action thriller. When a local drug dealer shoots a dishonest cop in self-defense, lawyer Roland Dalton (Weller) and renegade undercover cop Richie Marks (Elliott) join forces to clear him. But when their investigation leads them into a maze of greed and corruption, they learn that in a town where everything is for sale, anything can happen. This pulse-pounding adventure features some of the most incredible stunt work and action sequences ever shot.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Stunt-filled 80's action film! February 14, 1999
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape
    Another winner from underrated action director James Glickenhaus. Peter Weller and Sam Elliott star as a public defender and undercover cop who team up to take down a ring of dirty cops and a drug kingpin played by Antonio Fargas. Very well written, but the dialogue comes second to the action sequences, which are great. The best are a footchase through Coney Island that leads to a fistfight on a moving rollercoaster and a motorcycle/police car chase through Times Square. The stuntmen really have their work cut out for them in this one.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "You cops. You're the best that money can buy." April 17, 1999
    By A Customer
    Format:VHS Tape
    In a year when Die Hard, Midnight Run, and Action Jackson ruled the screens lies an overlooked, underrated film called Shakedown directed by James Glickenhaus. A shining example of what a true star Peter Weller is. And here's something for you movie buffs. When Weller and Elliot are walking out of the movie theater, the two movies that are being shown (The Exterminator and The Soldier) were also directed by Glickenhaus. Great stuntwork and a nice chase scene.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Get the NEW DVD release! June 9, 2004
    Format:DVD
    The new version of the DVD is a ton better then the horrid Goodtimes release. The disc is in Anamorphic Widescreen and the sound quality is really decent. No real extras except a trailer. Not a Blockbuster film but still decent. Hope this helps.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Better DVD January 12, 2014
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I had a different version of this movie & stumbled upon this release. Since I like this movie & it hasn't been released on bluray I took a gamble on this dvd & it does look better than the one I had. This IMO is a B rated, cool flick. I say B rated because most people have never heard of or seen this movie. Sam Elliot & Peter Weller give solid performances. This movie is about dope, dope dealers, crooked cops & the goods guys which are Sam, an undercover cop & Peter, a lawyer who gets caught up in the middle of it all. A great movie to add to your collection.
