Street Corner Justice

on October 02, 1996 by Dwayne E. Leslie
   When a video shows only the end of a one-sided fight, Detective Justus ("Beastmaster" Marc Singer) is accused of using excessive force and has to retire and leave town. He moves to California, where he becomes involved in his neighborhood's struggle with drugs and gangs. When his girlfriend has to be hospitalized, Justus enlists the aid of a karate-kicking prostitute and a 6'7" ex-gangbanger/born-again Christian, and the three head out to accomplish a little street justice.
   The film takes entirely too long to reach the plot's heart, and all of the action occurs during the last third. "Street Corner Justice" concentrates too much on establishing the bad of the bad guys: what the gangs can do, how much they can get away with, and their negative impact on the community. By the time the heroes do something, audiences no longer care. Starring Marc Singer, Kim Lanford, Beverly Leech, "Tiny" Lister, Jr., Soon-Teck Oh and Steve Railsback. Directed by Chuck Bail. Written by Stan Berowitz, Gary Kent and Chuck Bail. Produced by Jack Brown and Chuck Bail. A Sunset Intl. release. Action. Rated R. Running time: 102 min.
