Any film where the adversary is ... Martin Kove is good enough for me. Reasonably violent tbh. It's really a revenge flick as hard nosed businessman Ritter sort of "tags along" on a mission, believing that the personal touch is best. A hoot.
I have made a brief trip out of hibernation as this review came through in an email and oddly for several nights recently, I have been dreaming about this film.

Under Siege (1980, Rene Cardona Jr)

Stuart Whitman? Marisa Mell?? HUGO STIGLITZ???? AKA Hostages.

Ahem.
Madness cubed. Ostensibly about a heist gone wrong, but tis unfettered mayhem. Well it is the RCJ after all

Not the best print, but when did that ever stop me??

Golden Needles (1974, Robert Clouse)

Joe Don Baker? Jim Kelly?? Burgess Meredith ??? Lalo S provides the ST.
First things first, the real star of this film is Kelly's moustache
Joe D walks tall all over the place, a lot of glass gets broken, and there are fisticuffs in decent doses. Recommended if only for the opening sequence
Ahem. A hoot.

The ST is rather special tbh

Action USA (1989, John Stewart)

It was worth the wait. After trying my hand at a Turkish horror flick (some nice visual touches, a tad Lynchian in places even, it descended into cliche), I stuck this on instead.
A rootin' tootin' drivin' shootin' punchin' singin' explodin' joy to behold.
Filmed in Waco no less!!

Highly Recommended.

Blood Chase (1991, Ted Johnson)

Andrew Stevens kicks an awfy lot of folk in this rather super wee flick.
The plot centres round a missing relative, but that's just the framework, I could hardly draw breath as the violence escalates a gogo in this one. None of that turgid Hypocritewood style fighting either!
Happy Demon!!
