H to the Yeah! Fans of Showdown in Little Tokyo rejoice.
on February 13, 2013
A completely retro movie. I flashed back throughout this flick to some of the best years of my life as I thought about films like Dolph Lundgren's "Showdown in Little Tokyo," "Red Heat," and even "They Live."
What you have here is Stallone in his "Cobra" mode, a true bad ass, take no prisoners type of hero. He plays Jimmy Bobo, and he's hellbent on revenge after his partner is knifed by the dude from "Game of Thrones." I'm glad Jason Momoa is in this film because for the first time in my life, my girl dragged me to see a Stallone flick!
Enter in Detective Taylor Kwan, an upright law enforcement-type dude, who uses his investigative powers to discover Jimmy Bobo is an active hitman, and he and his partner killed a powerhouse in the criminal underworld. In fact, Kwan is certain Bobo's partner died as a result of the hit, and tries to lure Bobo into working for him to find a ruthless criminal.
The two eventually form an uneasy alliance and the movie is slam packed full of fist action and bullets and man, there is even an axe fight. Complete with a Christian Slater cameo as slimy Marcus Baptiste, why not see this film?
It's totally 80,s, early-90's style and it's banging, man. Nice nudity as well.
