"Not much of a film, but the action sequences are lively and anything with racial tensions in America is always topical."

Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz

A tawdry exploitation thriller, whose tagline is: "If you're not a white American, relocate or die." It's written and directed as a shocker by Charles T. Kanganis ("Father-Daughter Dance"/"The Grill"/"The Effort").

It's set in LA. A white-supremacist skinhead motorcycle gang, into drug dealing, are determined to rid the city of its non-whites. Racist police captain (William Smith) secretly allies with the gang and allows them to operate on his turf. Newly transferred  patrol officer (Blake Bahner) uncovers the plot and risks his neck to stop the baddies and save the neighborhood.

Not much of a film, but the action sequences are lively and anything with racial tensions in America is always topical.

The flames of racism burn hot as a murderous band of skinheads wreak havoc on the Los Angeles landscape and only one man can put an end to their explosive evil. - See more at: http://www.echobridgeentertainment.com/dvd/Deadly_Breed_00325#sthash.txHgLnmz.dpuf
