First up is Tony Scott's THE LAST BOY SCOUT, dumb as it is fun, and that's to say a heck of a lot, Bruce Willis is an angry ex-cop turned PI, who's forced to take on Damon Wayans as his partner/sidekick/buddy to nail the veil scum of the Earth that killed Halle Berry. Killed Halle Berry, those scumbags must pay.
Then we get to see Don Johnson do some acting, well sorta, as a real life badarse who took down a gang of neo-nazi scumbags in John Frankenheimer's DEAD-BANG. This is actually a really good flick, not like MIAMI VICE at all, much edgier and grittier. Also William Forsythe's in it, as a good guy (!) with religous convictions (!!!) and dosen't like Don saying f**k all the time.
Finally the masterpiece of the set ACTION JACKSON, a way over the top action-comedy that rivals TANGO & CASH for sheer stupidity while still be an awsome movie. Carl Weathers is in it, what ever happen to that guy(?), as the coolest and toughest black hero since Shaft, I don't remember exactly what it was all about, but I do remeber he kicks a lot of butt. Vanity is in, she was smokin' hot and nekkid in it too; she was also pretty funny. This is the diamond in the rough and tough no holds barred collection.
The only bad thing is that flicks are all pan and scan, but heck that's the way I saw them on VHS as did most of you who saw them. So it's sorta nostalgic. My advice, get this DVD, call up a few old buddies, then kick back and watch the butts get kicked.
1. The punching sound effects like the end fight scene are nothing short of amazing. Each punch caused seismic bass shocks.
2. Peter Delaplane, once the best 80s bad guys next to Cohagen or Dick Jones in Total Recall and Robocop.
3. The one liners and quotes are beyond one liners. Shall we review?
"Dont Bogart me lightfoot, there's nothing we'd like better than to take a tom slick like you and have us a little blanket party."
"Let me break it down to you. You be a Charley Irvine and we are gonna tap dance on your lips."
"What do you want from me Delaplane?"
"I want you to die."
4. Did I mention the quotes? Seriously the entire movie is a one liner which is also what makes it hilarious to watch.
5. Carl Weathers driving a car through someones house and driving some guy into the wall saying: "You lose."
6. Carl Weathers is a factory chained up and then completely oiled up flexing.
7. The whole movie is classic 80s action that only exists these days in movies like Crank.
8. The Vanity performance followed by the one liner:
"I thought I would get a standing ovation?"
"You are getting one."
Buy this movie and don't listen to the reviews.
Carl Weathers plays "Action" Jackson, a loose cannon Detroit cop with a law degree and an authority problem. He was once the star of the department until he busted the son of powerful automobile tycoon Peter Dellaplane (Craig T. Nelson) for a heinous crime. In the process of bringing this guy into custody, Jackson beat him up and broke his arm. Dellaplane the father has a lot of clout in the city, and he called in some favors in order to insure Jackson suffered greatly for his actions.Read more ›
