In RELENTLESS, Judd Nelson plays the son of a crazed Los Angeles super cop. Trained as a child to be as tough as his dear old dad, he is rejected by the LAPD as an adult and accordingly goes round the bend, beginning a series of murders with the intention of getting caught. Assigned to the

case are two detectives--a newly promoted plainclothesman from New York (Leo Rossi) and a crusty LA veteran (Robert Loggia)--who must overcome their differences to find the "Sunset Killer." RELENTLESS is virtually free of the excesses in director Michael Lustig's MANIAC and MANIAC COP, which are

gratuitous in their violence, sexist exploitation, and profanity. This is not to say that RELENTLESS isn't violent--in fact, violence is the only thing that holds this subpar B thriller together. Otherwise, its story is predictable, its stalking scenes are suspenseless, and its dialog is

laughable. Nelson's acting--consisting of rolling his eyes, sweating, and lurching at the camera--is another minus. Followed by DEAD ON: RELENTLESS II.
