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:

I agree:

The super secret Pentangle organization:

In 1986, action star Michael Dudikoff reteamed with his American Ninja director Sam Firstenberg (Ninja III: The Domination, Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo) & costar Steve James (The Exterminator) for another Cannon Pictures quickie. Steve James is a leading black political candidate. Pentangle is a mysterious, rich & racist organization with its own agenda. Somehow a vengeful Michael Dudikoff is caught between them in a Most Dangerous Game man-hunt scenario. Thankfully, Dudikoff "employs an awesome array of martial arts skills in his desperate fight for survival... and revenge!"
