They hired themselves a hero; But all they got was Trouble! This slick, fast moving and action-packed modern day western delivers a strong dramatic punch. The setting is a small California community that has been turned into a boomtown plagued by violence. Vietnam war hero and ex-trouble maker, Kris Kristofferson (Convoy) is hired to head a vigilante police force; he and his tough squad use violent strong-arm methods and soon clean up the town and proceed to take it for themselves. Now, the town's leaders turn to Kristofferson's younger brother, Jan-Michael Vincent (Defiance) to bring an end the vigilante force's reign and terror. Cult filmmaker George Armitage (Grosse Pointe Blank) wrote and directed this exciting and suspenseful thriller featuring a wonderful supporting cast that includes Victoria Principal, Bernadette Peters (The Jerk), Brad Dexter (99 River Street), David Doyle (TVs Charlies Angels), Andrew Stevens (Death Hunt), Paul Gleason (Die Hard) and Loni Anderson (TVs WKRP in Cincinnati) in the un-credited role of Peaches.
