In-between Karate Kids, Hollywood sought fit to grant Martin Kove a leading role in an action film. Does Kove have the charisma to pull off a starring role? Spoiler alert: no.
Final Score is a film on a mission. A mission to deliver more punches, kicks, broken bones, dead stuntmen and exploding houses than any other movie, and I think it might just have succeeded.
RAPING, ROBBING, KIDNAPPING, KILLING... THE ACTION NEVER STOPS. This is the tagline that’s proudly displayed on the poster for Hollywood Cop, so my expectations were pretty high already.
It's cheesy in the right spots and brutal when it needs to be. If you want to take a break from Seagal and Van Damme but still have a hankering for 90s action, Excessive Force is a worthwhile sidestep.
Russian Terminator is a film that kind of defies description. There is a ninja, but in no way could you call Russian Terminator a ninja film. Also, there aren't any Terminators in it, although there are at least two scenes that rip off The Terminator
I've learned to expect certain things from Arizal: indecipherable plotting, terrible acting, hilarious scripting, ridiculous hair, sweat, comedy villains, funky music, explosions and insane stunts.

Roddy Piper joins wooden Billy Blanks. Wooden would be praise. Wood has grains and knots. In other words wood has character. Blanks is more like a muscled shirtless slab of fuming MDF. But Blanks makes up for his acting by turning Back in Action into his own kicking rampage.
James Woods. Not only is he a fantastic and ridiculous actor, he’s also a fascinating person. Everything about the guy is odd – his absurdly high IQ, his intensely right wing political views (which I don’t subscribe to, by the way) and his controversial, often bizarre, statements. Outside of Tom Cruise, I struggle to think...
