52 Pick-Up (1986)
Harry Mitchell, an L.A. manufacturer with a fancy car, a nice house, and a wife running for city council, has his life overturned when three hooded blackmailers appear with a video tape of Harry and his young mistress. He’s been set up, and they want $100,000. To protect his wife’s political ambitions, Harry won’t go to the police; instead, he shines them on and then doesn’t pay. They up their demands, so he goes on the offensive, tracking them down and trying to turn one against the other. Their sociopathic leader, Alan, responds with violence toward the mistress and menace toward Harry’s wife. Will Harry let up and pay off Alan or can he find some other solution?

Based on Elmore Leonard, this is a violent and intelligent action film. The story: a business man is blackmailed by some 3 criminals. Roy Schieder does great job as the leading character and special credit’s got to go to John Glover who plays sort of a naughty psychopath. I must mention that the villains characters are very complex and interesting – something that is very rare for an action film. also features some beautiful and sexy women – most notable are Kelly Preston as the young bate for Schieder’s character. Vanity gives a very good performance and appearance as the hooker who is connected with the three blackmailers. I’m glad to say that Ann-Margaret still hasn’t lost it – this lady is a true babe. Don’t look at the rate of this film. I really don’t know what the public and some critics have against this film but my suggestion is to ignore them and watch this truly gripping and under-rated film. You will enjoy it, that’s a promise. Recommended A+.
