Editorial Reviews

If you can't take the heat...don't commit the Felony. Twelve brave cops walk into a bloody ambush and now the police are desperate for revenge. Lance Henriksen, the renegade CIA agent who set it up, will go to any length to eliminate the one witness who caught the grisly details on video tape. Maverick detective Leo Rossi wants justice, but everywhere he turns he finds deceit and interference, especially from Joe Don Baker, a secret government operative who shoots first and asks questions later.

Although I'm sure it was not the intent of anyone involved in its making, this movie is a *laugh riot*.

My interest in "Felony" is the ensemble of actors they've put together--David Warner!!! Lance Henriksen!! Jeffrey Combs!! Joe Don Baker!! Charles Napier!! My God, what a cast!

The story is some vague, double-crossing FBI/drug running thing (not to--heh!--spoil it, for anyone), but I can't say I was really watching for the plot. The movie could have been about just about anything, and, with that cast, I would have bought it.

It was a joy to watch these actors--some of them, my very favorites--together.

The highlights for me: David Warner driving a pickup truck, and dropping an F-bomb; Jeffery Combs (in the Bruce Campbell role, apparently) escaping Joe Don Baker's rescue, and later, crashing through his front window when he could have very easily gone through the door he had just used; and, finally, David Warner telling Lance that Joe Don was "just waiting for us to do something stupid" and Lance replying, "It's FAR too late for that." My husband and I had to pause the movie--we were laughing too hard to hear any more dialogue.

It's really not a bad movie, by any means; it's just rather clumsily put together. The cast does what they can, and it is because of them that "Felony" is in any way watchable. A gem!!

Lance Henriksen (Hard Target, Millennium) and Leo Rossi (Relentless) are together again since "Hit List". They add their special talents to this movie and their faces to the cover, a big reason why I bought it. Mr. Henriksen repeats his classic role as the controling mad man behind the scenes. Mr. Rossi, playing a cop, doesn't get to display his usual cocky attitude much, a drawback he overcomes. Anther great in this movie of doublecross is David Warner (Wax Works, Time After Time). His British cool is perfect as the resourceful rougue CIA agent. Jeffery Combs (Re-animator) takes a step out of the sci-fi realm here portraying a film maker, but one keeps expecting him to revert any minute. Other greats are Joe Don Baker (Walking Tall) and Charles Napier (Hit List). Ashley Lawrence (Hellraiser) is the girl trying to do good. There's plenty of action and nothing is what it seems. Worth buying or renting to see these great actors together.

The Felony is a great movie for action-film genre buffs who don't take the concept too seriously. Make no mistake - this is a B film with bad acting, directing, dialog, etc., but myself and another independent tester laughed until we cried watching this wonderful dog of a movie. The Felony has everything - explosions, car chases, buddy cops, bad girls, guns, corruption, and a reluctant hero. Of course, there is the ubiquitous "incriminating item" that all the main characters are willing to kill to get - this time, it's a video tape. This movie also has all your favorite not-quite-famous actors like Leo Rossi, Joe Don Baker, Charles Napier, and my personal favorite, Lance Henriksen. You'll get a kick out of picking them out, and glad that they found work. Jeffrey Combs is at his mugging best here. Buy this video! But make sure you watch it with some buddies and a 6 pack, and be prepared to guffaw. END

Im gonna Go Straight to the point on this Movie it was Pretty Good for an Action Movie that you think would Suck but it turns out to be the Opposite.I gave this Movie 5 Stars Because of this it had Good Action as well as My Favorite things in Movies Car Crashes and it had 3 Wrecks in it which the first 1 was Pretty Good were the Car goes Flying over 3 other Cars and Smashes Down on to the another Car and gets Crushed and then the Second Crash was Alright were it drove over a Bridge and gets Smashed and lastly the 3rd Crash was Frikken Awesome and out of sight this time its a Nice Old Caddilac from the 80,s that goes turning in mid air and comes down Hard and gets totally wrecked.As for Storyline I realy don't care but it was Good its Basically about a Tape that the Bad Guys want so they won't get Thrown in Jail over a Hit they did on some Cops.Overall this is a Cool Action Movie and to finally see Lance Henrikson in a Movie that Actually goes good is a First.

Felony is a terrible movie. The writing is illogical, the directing is choppy and disjointed, and the acting is awful, with one exception. The camera work looks like a poorly done television production. The special effects are amateurish and outlandish with slow moving cars suddenly flipping and flying through the air from a single gun shot defying all physics or reason.

How someone gave this mess a 5 star rating is beyond me. Save your money and buy almost any other movie. This is like an badly made porn movie without the nudity. It truly is beyond bad.
