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
