Movie Info

This actioner is set in a remote, heavily forested area in Northern California where marijuana growers raise their illegal crops and run whole communities with their terrorist tactics and wealth. The tale centers on the efforts of a fearless New York cop to free one such community from the tyranny of the pot growers. It begins with a surveyor who is leading the town's crooked sheriff to a small marijuana field he has just discovered. The surveyor is killed before he can get there. Joshua, a small boy, sees the execution and tries to get back in time to tell his parents. Unfortunately, the killers murder his family and throw him off a cliff. The boy's aunt, worried at not hearing from her family, gets suspicious and asks an old flame, NY cop Joe Dillon, to investigate. The town sheriff is not pleased by his intrusion and warns him to stay out of it. Dillon disobeys, and that is where all the action comes in.

A nasty formula action film about a drug smuggling scheme in the Pacific Northwest.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

For all its woefully generic trappings, outlandishly ineffectual music, and cardboard-flavored dialogue, Quiet Cool does offer an appreciable amount of mayhem for your rental dollar.

A formulaic '80s action cheapie full of bad acting, trite dialogue and by-the-numbers action.

Audience Reviews for Quiet Cool


I need to catch the end of this. The music was good and it was overall very 80s. But it had some ok action scenes, even if the acting got too far over the top. I couldn't recommend it (unless maybe you are nostaligic for the mid-Eighties,) but I woudl watch it again.

How in the hell did this get 4 stars on Flxister? This film is PAINFUL. Sure, sure, sure, it's so bad it's good at times. And you laugh a lot at it. With some great buddies, you can really make fun of this until the cows come home. But you know what? It's still a horrible movie. And it still hurts. :(
