Storyline

Ex-cop and Vietnam War veteran Logan Blade, who always wears a slick leather trench coat and an imposing cowboy hat, works as a New York bounty hunter, who along with his pet doberman catches dangerous criminals and delivers them to the police for a reward. His latest catch is young Angel, the leader of the Los Diablos gang. However, Angel's personal bodyguard and top mercenary, Col. Walsh, a Vietnam War vet suffering from delusions of grandeur who lost it and became a killing machine obsessed with famous conquerors from history, especially Alexander the Great and Napoleon, since he sees himself as one of them and Los Diablos as his future army, gets him out and kills a bunch of cops. Since one of the killed police officers was Logan's personal friend, Logan takes this personally and goes after Angel again. Los Diablos are expanding and their main enemy on the streets is the Italian mob outfit led by Don Mario Romano. In an attempt to make sure that he can get Angel alive, Logan tries...

A decadent action film.
19 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

An untitillating tale of murder, drugs...and shootings. "Street Hunter" is inept, mundane, and gauche. Pointless at times, this film also contains plenty of violence. Street Hunter" has a flashy musical score though...

Logan Blade (the late Steve James) is an ex-cop who battles over-stereotypical gangsters. Blade predictably becomes inured prey for the street gangs once he witnesses an act of deception and violence. After the son of a powerful Mafioso gang is eliminated in a shoot-out, the Mafioso leader hires Logan Blade to track down and nail the killers. Blade is pressed against time for he has only 24 hours to complete his mission...

Logan Blade has just waged war on both sides of the gang wars, and a bloodbath is soon to ensue...

Blade must match his wits and fists with the crazed, philosophical Colonel Walsh (Reb Brown). Walsh happens to be a Vietnam Veteran with a predilection for murder. Comedian and future star John Leguizamo ("The Pest", "Super Mario Brothers") is Angel, the sardonic underling of nemesis Reb Brown ("Space Mutiny", "Robowar"). Angel adds substance to this film as an often amusing, always idiotic side-kick for Colonel Walsh. John Leguizamo's performance as Angel is the only standout and is the pure, sole reason to watch this otherwise incoherent, opague obscurity.

Still, in spite of a fine performance by Leguizamo, Street Hunter" remains a miserable movie that does not guarantee any thrills. In fact, there is not a modicum of excitement in this movie. Not much of a plot, no discernible theme, and not even enough action! Performances are unfortunately inconsequential because they fail to enliven a dreary plot.

"Street Hunter" is a destitute thriller that tries to make up for a bereft of plot and logic with inept philosophies on how people throw their lives away and such. However, the vigilante-on-the-rampage film has been done so many times, already; this theme after experiencing it hundreds of times becomes simply erratic. Nobody can commiserate with the characters, and much of the violence is repellent.

Street Hunter" gives new meaning to the phrases "anemic" and "pro forma." This film fails to even warrant as a "so bad, it's enjoyable" junk. The action is poorly choreographed, the acting is unacceptable (except for Leguizamo's show-stealing performance), and the pace of this film is dreadful. With no originality, thrills, or suspense, "Street Hunter" is simply just a snoozer...

RATING: NO STARS out of ****.
