Plot Synopsis:

Neil is a DEA agent on the brink of suicide after a mistake while undercover leads to the accidental death of a young girl. In order to help Neil, his partner Dave agrees for the two of them to go back undercover on a federal case involving the distribution of a new highly addictive steroid that is having grave consequences for its users. Once undercover, Neil finds himself immersed in the body building culture and soon falls for his new personal trainer, Marla. The stakes get higher as Neil moves deeper undercover and sets his sights on taking down the leader of the drug dealing ring, the charismatic and ruthless Paulie Salano.

A perfect example of the type of action movies that lined the video store shelves back in the 90s, WHATEVER IT TAKES, is an exceptional shoot 'em up, complete with fistfights, explosions, and beautiful women. Starring kickboxing champion Don "The Dragon" Wilson (Bloodfist) in one of his best roles, and co-starring comedian turned actor Andrew "Dice" Clay (Brain Smasher...A Love Story), Michael Bailey Smith (2006's The Hills Have Eyes), and the always entertaining Fred "The Hammer" Williamson (Vigilante, From Dusk Till Dawn) in one of his more villainous roles.
