(1993) Zero Tolerance
Straight-to-rental horse crap which is the much poorer imitation version of better action movies such as "Lethal Weapon 1 & 2", "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" and "Hardboiled" to name a few.
Robert Patrick as FBI agent Jeff Douglas along with two other agents get ambushed while escorting a dangerous drug cartel named Ray (Titus Welliver) from Mexico to the United States. During his freedom, Ray then get his goons to take Jeff Douglas's family hostage so that he could get his heroin across the border since he's a FBI agent even though he was planning have Jeff and his family killed anyway. After Jeff manages to escape a failed assassination attempt on his life, he then goes on a killing spree on the cartels responsible for his family's deceased, and they're called "The White Hand". Some of the action scenes although CGI wasn't used are poorly staged and like I've said above looked like poor imitations of better action movies like John riding the motorcycle similar to the Arnold character from "Terminator 2", the scenes where John's demeanour becoming suicidal was similar to the Mel Gibson character as Martin Riggs scenes of the Lethal Weapon movies as well as the helicopters. And the gun fire scenes from "Hardboiled" which they're times viewers are unable to make out what's happening, or that sometimes the people who're shooting look slightly off. Which now that I think about it seems like it's real intentions was to capitalize on better made and higher budget action movies.

Zero Tolerance is a revenge film about an FBI agent who goes rogue after a group of drug dealers known as the White Hand kill his family. It has a familiar revenge story, but this film is more focused on the philosophy of, "less plot, more ass-kicking", since it features awesome action sequences at least every five minutes and such scenes are rather awesome to watch. Zero Tolerance may be cheese, but it wonderful cheese that is an absolute blast to watch. I think it's great.
A movie with full of action and suspense. But it came with a plot which is too simple.
A FBI agent tries to kill drug dealers for killing his family.
