Although this fictional film may seem, at first, to be merely a stupid, sleazy, low budget, flop, perhaps not much unlike Carradine's final days in reality, it is packed full of redeeming value if you pay attention, listen to the dialogue, and finish watching it.
It is a movie for our divided times in the U.S.A., showing a country full of diverse, ignorant, hypocritical people who barely get along with each other when they have little other choice.
One such hero is Foreigner, a tall, dark, friendly, debonaire, foreign man with a bad cocaine habit. Another is his partner, Blackie, a black, overly self-/racially conscious American thug born to a prostitute and a preacher who was one of her regular tricks; he insists Jesus Christ was black, and hates white people and others who don't know what it's like to be a slave, until Foreigner points out that, while his grandparents or great grandparents may have known what it was like, Blackie himself doesn't know, either. Furthermore, Foreigner points out, Blackie is just as racist as Whitey, a redneck Neo-Nazi from New Jersey who loves Hitler and hates blacks until his mother tells him about the coffee in his cream, so to speak, as while as his long, Jewish heritage. Then there's Carradine's character, a conservative Viet Nam veteran/P.O.W. who realizes that liberals coddle criminals whose necks should be stretched on the gallows, even though he is a corrupt, bloodthirsty government official himself, who has people assassinate people he previously has assassinate other people. Michael Madsen's character is comforted by looking at the urn full of his mother-in-law's ashes on his mantle. Indian is an American Indian who looks more like Blackie than an American Indian. Not such a noble native, he hangs out with criminals such as Foreigner, Whitey and Blackie.
I won't dwell on all the Hispanic pedophiles in this film. Suffice it to say that a lot of interaction occurs between kidnapped foster children and our heroes, which gives viewers numerous chances to stop and think about the examples we're setting for them, as well as what we can learn from them if we, like Foreigner, will just stop and listen to what they're trying to tell us. The children learn at an early age not to trust corrupt cops, and that drugs are a bad habit.
Most of these characters die miserable deaths. One of them survives to become a better person. Watch the movie to find out who that is.
I'm going to watch it again and again to see more of what I missed between the lines.
