The Taking Of Beverly Hills

Posted by phil blankenship, April 25, 2007 07:06pm | Post a Comment
 



1991 semi-classic ACTION flick starring Ken Wahl (TV's Wiseguy) as a renegade NFL player (and Beverly Hills resident) who, with the help of cop Matt Frewer (Max Headroom!), has to save himself, save his city, save his neighbor's $$, AND get his girl back from the very evil Robert Davi (Jake Fratelli from The Goonies!) and Lee Ving (Holy shit! From the punk band FEAR!). 

The off-the-wall concept details a toxic spill hoax that causes the complete evacuation of Beverly Hills so the criminal crew can execute 'an epic scheme to loot the entire city!'  Thankfully, Wahl was getting too busy in the hot tub to pay any mind to the evacuation orders! Out of the hot tub & into the fire, Wahl battles the bad guys (well armed with heavy weaponry & even a TANK) & uncovers the the criminals' true motives. 

If you've ever wanted to see Beverly Hills shot up, smashed, blown up and generally destroyed, THIS is the movie for you!  Needless to say, my roommate Corydon & I were INTO it.  However, Hillary & my cat Samantha looked more like this by the end:

Number One With A Bullet

To refresh your memory:



 
Less than a month before Lethal Weapon would change buddy cop film history, Cannon Films unleashed its own brand of black & white justice. Starring Robert Carradine (Revenge of the Nerds, Massacre at Central High, Revenge of the Cheerleaders) & Billy Dee Williams (Empire Strikes Back, Colt 45) as mismatched police partners tackling crime on the mean streets of LA & corruption in their own precinct!  Williams is Hazeltine, a smooth ladies man, always on the prowl. Carradine is Berzak (aka Berzerk), a renegade mad dog who eats RAW MEAT (!!!) when he's not busy trying to throw a monkey wrench into Hazeltine's love plans. Peter Graves (Airplane, Mission:Impossible) is the tough police captain who doesn't take any guff! And Valerie Bertinelli (Touch By An Angel) is Berzak's estranged wife, torn between her former lover and some guy who drives a red sports car. They all collide in what my roomate deemed "Number Awesome With A Fuck Yeah!"

[Doris Roberts (the mom from Everybody Loves Raymond) is in the flick as Berzak's nagging mother... but I couldn't bring myself to post a picture]
