Movie Info

Modern-day Texas Ranger Jack Benteen (Nick Nolte) was once the best friend of local drug kingpin Cash Bailey (Powers Boothe). At present, however, the only element linking them together is Jack's lover Sarita (Maria Conchita Alonso), Cash's former mistress. When Sarita tires of Jack's Spartan lifestyle, she returns to Cash as a voluntary hostage to make certain that Jack keeps his hands off Cash's operation. The film comes to a head during a meticulously planned drug bust, in which both Jack and

Vintage Walter Hill. Mean and tough with vivid characterizations, intense confrontations and hard-edged action galore.

Audience Reviews for Extreme Prejudice

Terrific dated action feast from Walter Hill that clearly shows early ideas for his other action feasts and also kinda reminded me of an early 'Expendables' type film. The cast in this is pretty awesome in terms of characters actors, Nolte, Ironside, Torn, Powers Boothe, Maria Conchita Alonso, Clancy Brown, William Forsythe, Marco Rodríguez, Mickey Jones and Tommy 'Tiny' Lister...oddly.

Its basically a big build up to a big shoot em up at the finale between everyone with double cross and bullets flying everywhere, very over the top and so very very 80's, lovely. Nothing much to explain really, if you like loud action flicks with plenty of henchmen getting shot in slow motion then this is for you baby, Nolte is gruff and miserable, Ironside is evil and slimy whilst Forsythe is like a hurricane with profanity filled fast dialog.

Love how in these films everyone seems to get shot in the shoulder or just below, doesn't matter how many times they get shot or the range its always the shoulder area, brilliant!.

The Wild Bunch meets No Country for Old Men as directed by Walter Hill? Yes PLEASE! Also including the awesome cast of Powers Boothe, Michael Ironside, Rip Torn, Clancy Brown, William Forsythe and Nick Nolte (before he went all crazy). Did I mention it's co-written by John Milius?

Walter Hill does a pretty good imitation of the work of his mentor Sam Peckinpah with this action thriller revolving around the two heavyweight performances by larger than life Nick Nolte and Powers Boothe, old friends who become a Ranger and drug dealer respectively, resulting in an inevitably bloody showdown. Generic but solid action fare.
