Editorial Reviews

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I remember watching this in the late '80s and being disappointed. I think that I enjoyed it more this time because of my low expectations, plus it was fun to see Weller and Elliott at the beginning of their marquis star status.

    The story is goofy but enjoyable and also disjointed. Weller is a legal aid lawyer about to sell out to Wall Street because he is marrying money, and Elliott is an honest cop living in a theater who is estranged from his wife. Weller and Elliott know each other - they are friends with a history, it seems - but why that is the case is never explained. They actually have good chemistry together. Weller catches a case where his client is innocent of murdering a cop; the client is a drug dealer who shot the dishonest cop in self-defense. Elliott works with the same band of dishonest cops that this cop belonged to. Somehow these cops are involved with a gangster - an African-American hip gangster because it is the '80s - who they initially raid but later they work with for no reason that is ever explained. When action is required, the bad guys open fire on innocent bystanders and explosions ensue with no concern for the safety of anyone.

    Weird, but hey, it was the '80s.

    The story line is disjointed. There are leaps of story-telling, e.g., why does Weller think it is such a brilliant idea to break into the police headquarters rather than asking Elliott to get the evidence? Who knows, it just happens. And how does ripping some wires off the back of a roller coaster cause it to jump the tracks? Again, stuff just happens.

    So long as you don't think about what you are watching, it is a popcorn action-adventure flick that rewards the price of a rental.

    Great movie and great pair of actors. Peter Weller delivers a great role as a lawyer defending a young black drug dealer who was attacked by an off duty police officer because of the kids skin color. Shows a twist of corrupt cops and racism at it finest. A must watch film for everyone.

    Loved this movie when I first saw it. It held up well.

    Peter Weller & Sam Elliott are great as opposite spirits who are of the same mind about justice and what is right.
