"Jackson Bolt" isn't just a movie, but a collection of some of the most talented actors and filmmakers from Northern California, working together on a passion project.
Robert Parham stars as Jackson Bolt. While he might seem like your typical renegade cop who doesn't play by the rules, he shows a softness and vulnerability not normally found in other renegade cop movies. This is thanks in huge part to Parham's performance, who wonderfully balances being a badass cop with being a troubled husband struggling to get his life back together.
Fred "The Hammer" Williamson plays Jackson's therapist, Tommy - a calm, collected, thinking man, who breaks type from the tough guy roles Williamson is most known for. (Not to say he doesn't whoop some butt, because he does.)
The pimp character, Jimmy, is played by James E. Meyer (who happens to be the film's screenwriter), who lights up the screen in every scene he's in. The character is absolutely despicable, but Meyer always looks like he's having a blast on-screen. There's nothing redeemable about him whatsoever, but you can't help but love to hate him and hate to love him. Meyer reminds me of a young Jack Nicholson with the craziness of Charles Manson.
The role that surprised me the most was the character of Sky, played by Natasha Dee Davis. All throughout the movie, she's abused by Jimmy for his own sick purposes. The role is emotionally draining, but the actress gives it her all, without ever seeming corny or inauthentic. Without giving too much away, she ends up holding her own against the bad guys and becomes her own action heroine.
The fight choreography is phenomenal, and makes up some of the best scenes in the movie. The entire hospital sequence is wonderfully choreographed, perfectly paced, and beautifully shot. It also has some amazing one-liners everyone should start using in their everyday life ("Let's get this liver in, I've got a date tonight!").
