John Travolta is impressive in this 1989 feature film that never made it into the theaters. He plays an iconoclastic, formerly alcoholic Miami social worker who infiltrates a savage crack ring ruled by Benjamin (Nasty Boys) Bratt in order to rescue a wayward teen client (Joey Lawrence).
Marilu Henner, Bernie Casey and Hector Elizondo costar in this re-creation of big-time drug dealing that, while it begins realistically, succumbs to action film clichés. Yo, guys, save the alligator pit for the Bond movies.
