Ross & Phil Talk Movies Present: The 2020 Boyask Awards for Action In Movies

Ross & Phil Talk Movies Present: The 2020 Boyask Awards for Action In Movies

A Blog

‘The Boyasks’ (named for our very own Action obsessed Ross Boyask) pick up on what the Academy, BAFTA’s and Globes miss out… acknowledging the performance, craft and skill of action & stunt performers and cinema. Last year Mission Impossible: Fallout swept the board in at the 1st Annual Boyask Action Awards, with Tom Cruise & Loren Janes entering the Hall of Fame.

This year Ross breaks the rules, doesn’t nominate in a category and try to nominate Dolomite for almost everything. We also, on reflection, decide that 2019 wasn’t a GREAT year for action films.

Henchman: The Al Leong Story (2019)- A Quick Capsule Review

Henchman: The Al Leong Story (2019)- A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
If you grew up watching action films in the 80’s & 90’s, whether you knew it or not you grew up watching Al Leong – the legendary henchman/stunt performer/action man with his distinctive Fu Manchu moustache and balding hair.  From Big Trouble In Little China to Die Hard, Lethal Weapon to Rapid Fire, Leong fought (and was killed by) them all.  This documentary tells his story, his rise to legendary status and the sad twists and turns that saw him sidelined from the early 2000’s.  It’s a hugely affectionate film, made by and featuring some heavyweight talent who all wax lyrical about the king of the henchmen.  From triumph to sadness, the film is an amazing tribute to a real unsung hero of action cinema.

Best Bit: The affection for Leong

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Big Trouble In Little China, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, Rapid Fire

Action Jackson (1988) – A Quick Capsule Review

Action Jackson (1988) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Action Jackson is a top notch film.  It’s got everything – action, Al Leong, gratuitous nudity, synth music, familiar faces, Carl Weathers, a silly lead character name (Jericho ‘Action’ Jackson) quips, stunts and, of course, Vanity.  It’s screams the 80’s from every second of its tightly edited ninety minute run time.  It also has held up quite well, all things considered.  It’s odd that in the pantheon of great 80’s action films that Jackson it isn’t remembered more fondly.  Seek it out – it’s well worth it.

Best Bit: Weathers is superb

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Never Too Young To Die, Lethal Weapon 2, Tango & Cash
