Editorial Reviews

Hate and revenge go together like hand in glove.

In THE GLOVE, a down-on-his luck bounty hunter (John Saxon of BLACK CHRISTMAS) buys a one way ticket to Hell when he tries to capture a vengeful ex-con (Rosey Grier) out to punish an order of corrupt prison guards with the torture device they used on him: a riot glove made of 5 lbs. of lead and steel.

Co-starring Joanna Cassidy (BLADE RUNNER) and a cast of veteran Hollywood actors, including Keenan Wynn (PIRANHA), Joan Blondell (NIGHTMARE ALLEY) and Aldo Ray).

In SEARCH AND DESTROY, ex-GIs Perry King (CLASS OF 1984) and Don Stroud (PERDITA DURANGO) fight for their lives as members of their elite combat unit are picked off one by one by the embittered soldier they left behind enemy lines.

George Kennedy (AIRPORT) and Tisa Farrow (ZOMBIE) are also featured in this edgy action thriller from director William Fruet (DEATH WEEKEND).

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than one might assume December 12, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised by this double feature DVD. Particularly with the Glove which is a solid entry in the Private Eye genre. I liked its realism and unromantic presentation of the everyday life of a bounty hunter. John Saxon fits the part perfectly and delivers a solid performance. Joanna Cassidy (who laughs less than usual) is also very good as the bounty hunter's fleeting love interest. I also thought that the avenger with the inhuman riot glove, played by Roosevelt Grier, was an interesting and memorable character as he has a friendly and maybe even chivalrous side. He reminded me a little of Forrest Whitaker in Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great action double from the 70s/80s August 29, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a treat to have both of these films released by Dark Sky, one of the best companies in recent years to deliver rare films that are also remastered to perfection as well as in wide screen where possible.
I've always enjoyed The Glove (1978) it has a memorable opening number and John Saxon is as always excellent in the role of a world weary bounty hunter. Rooevelt Grier also excels and the supporting cast enhances the film.
Search And Destroy likewise makes for an entertaining action feature with good roles for Don Stroud and Perry King ably supported by the ever reliable George Kennedy.
Add these films to your collection and take a trip back in time...

One usually goes into these type of double-(or triple-)feature disks with extremely low expectations. These disks are usually bought in anticipation that the movies will be laughably bad. Sometimes one of the movies will turn out be kinda' good, but if that's the case it's a sure bet that the other features on the disk won't even rise up to so-bad-it's-good standards. That's why this "Drive-In Double Feature" from Dark Sky is so unique: BOTH featured movies, while not great by any stretch, are much better than anyone would ever expect.

Little time is wasted putting the Niagra-set SEARCH & DESTROY (1979) in motion. Four Vietnam vets who served together are being targeted by a killer, with one vet killed off during the opening credits and the body of another found shortly thereafter. Remaining vets Perry King and Don Stroud are considered suspects--that is until the killer (Jong Su Park) opens fire on them as they get off a Niagra Falls tour boat. George Kennedy is the police chief who wants to wrap up the case quickly lest the killer scares away tourists. As he explains to King: "These people prefer to watch violence on TV. Dammit, we don't have time for another war!" I've read other reviews that have noted "Search & Destroy" doesn't have enough narrative to sustain its 90 minute run time, and I agree. There's a lot of padding here, with chase scenes that go on much longer than they should. A better tack might have been to spend a little more time developing King's and Stroud's characters at the beginning before putting them in the killer's sights. Nevertheless, director William Fruet gives us a pretty clear picture of King's and Stroud's hardscrabble existences before the pair become targets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the time August 31, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Cheezee story - Might have been good 40 years ago... And after investing all this time it has an ending that leaves you empty - Typical of some popular story lines long ago. I only give it three for those who like older movies
