    Part of The 2021 Cult Movie Challenge
    Week 38:
    Fred Williamson Week

    From the director of '80s camp classic Never Too Young to Die comes this funky '90s DTV relic. Fred "The Hammer" Williamson and his extremely obvious stunt double star as Dakota "Dak" Smith, who's employed as a Texas motorcycle cop even though his dependence on alcohol has him living in a shelter with a top-hatted Bushwick Bill.

Wendy helps Boris enter its basement to steal a rumored treasure, unaware that Lord Breston has a modest network of booby trapped rooms down there to stop any would-be robbers. The bulk of the movie therefore plays like a Z-grade precursor to Cube, as the…
