Blastfighter (1984)— Movie Reviews by a Mook

This time, the movie poster definitely captures some of what happens, like vehicle explosions. For a mix of hixploitation and revenge cinema set in the woods, there are a surprising number of cars and trucks that get blown up.

The 2nd (2020)— Movie Reviews by a Mook

Always remember, no matter how tough life can be, there isn’t any kind of problem, big or small, that can’t be helped by sending in a CIA hit team to kidnap someone’s kid. Seriously, I use them to handle my grocery shopping. Major Vic Davis is a special forces super soldier and not the best […]
