Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this action comedy, renegade cop Jake Wilder investigates the death of his old friend, Lou Swanson, another cop, who was killed while investigating the bombing of a San Diego housing project. To solve the murder and stop the bomber, Wilder teams up with Swanson's partner, a German Shepherd named Reno. At first the new partners do not get along, but eventually they begin working as a team and discover that the culprit was a white-supremacist group. This film stirred up a lot of controversy when it first came out as the distributors exhibited remarkably bad judgment by releasing it two weeks after the Oklahoma City bombing of a Federal building that resulted in the death of close to two hundred innocent people, some of them small children.
