The Perfect Weapon (1991) – A Hall Of Fame Quick Capsule Review

The Perfect Weapon (1991) – A Hall Of Fame Quick Capsule Review

Hall of Fame Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Perfect Weapon is one of the best 90’s direct to video action films that you probably haven’t seen.   Starring genuine hard man Jeff Speakman and a host of “Oh It’s him ” cast members (Mako, James Hong, Professor Tanaka to name but three), it’s low of budget but high on well done action.  If you are a fan of late 80’s and early 90’s martial arts films (the likes that Cannon would’ve made) then The Perfect Weapon is a must watch!

American Ninja – A Classic Quick Capsule Review

American Ninja – A Classic Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I LOVED the American Ninja films growing up.  They were my gateway drug into classic Ninja films, the likes of Sho Kosugi and, in turn, the Hong Kong films of Jackie Chan & John Woo.  They also launched my love of direct to DVD action films, something that years on I still have massive affection for.  So nearly 30 years on, does American Ninja hold up?  Well mostly yes.  It’s fun. It’s full of action. And it’s cheesy as hell. For sure it won’t convert any new fans but for those who grew up with them, they are more than worth a revisit.

“He has great skills”.  Indeed.

Best Bit: The Army arrives

Tactical Force – A Quick Capsule Review

Tactical Force – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Arriving straight to DVD back in 2011 (and probably straight to Netflix in most places), Tactical Force is a vehicle for former wrestler ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and former Spawn star Michael Jai White.  It doesn’t really do much for either career to be fair and the film is It’s terrible for the most part but doesn’t take itself too seriously so ends up being a totally forgettable but diverting low budget action film.  Packed with a few nice fights, a couple of neat car chases and shoot outs and some hysterically bad dialogue – what more could you want?

Best Bit: Austin’ dead pan delivery is ace.

Phil’s Top 5… 1985 Films!

Phil’s Top 5… 1985 Films!

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Films from 1985.  Yup the golden years of movie.s

 

Close but no cigar: Enemy Mine, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, American  Ninja, Police Story

 

5 – Rambo: First Blood Part 2
Rambo is back and this time he’s unleashed in Vietnam, making a heroic return and on the look out for missing war veterans.  Chaotic, ridiculous action sequences and Stallone mumbling through ever scene follows.  It’s brilliant.

 

4 – Day Of The Dead
For me the Best of the original Romero trilogy.  With the dead now outnumbering the living and the remaining humans tearing each other apart you end up with most of the most claustrophobic and down beat horror films ever.  It’s not an easy watch but it’s a good one.

 

3 – Commando
One of Arnie’s most OTT entries (in a decade where OTT was the mantra), Commando is a joy to watch.  From self healing Porches to killer one liners, Commando is the action film of the 80’s.

 

2 – Back To The Future
Marty McFly, Doc Brown, The Delorian, 88 mph, the clock tower… the iconic images and moments just keep on coming.  Any other year back To the Future would have walked film of the year…

 

1 – The Goonies
… but this was the year of The Goonies, the Spielberg produced, Richard Donner directed epic that it just as perfect as an 80’s film could get.  Pirates, adventure, treasure, Giant octopuses (kinda) The Goonies has it all AND more. Epic.
