Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two. Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs.. For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get .
I have made conservative judgement calls about what material I could use. He is an Irishmnn of obscure birth, but had interjected "Arlington" between his original names, and assumed to be of noble blood.
His death is memorable. This did receive a U. After about a half hour of "character development", the mountain clan gang-rape Ling and kill Wah, by pushing him into a wild boar pit full of bamboo spikes.
The police are called in, but the mountain clan's elder blames the campers for their own misfortunes "They come here and destroy the environment! The police have two witnesses: Ling, who is now nothing but a basketcase She's so far gone, she accuses her father of being one of her rapists when he visits her in the hospitaland a local villager The police put a bag over his head, with two eyeholes cut-out so he can make an ID of the rapists, who are in the same room with him!
The mountain clan who are sometimes referred to as "disco boys" are able to identify the local villager by his shoes! They bury him up to his neck in pig shit and make him balance a sharp stick in his mouth, while alcohol is poured down his throat.
Ling and Wah's father Chen Sing decides to take the law into his own hands since the police are so ineffective. Being a carpenter by trade, he uses tools of his trade in unusual ways to exact his revenge.
The mountain clan go to a bar, where they kidnap a prostitute and bring her back to the woods, but they fight each other about who is going to have first dibs with her and she escapes.
Ling's father kills the first clan member, Fu Ko Chun-Manby luring him into a tent he simply hangs a couple of pair of women's panties next to itsnaring his leg in a bear trap and then hacking him to death with a specially-made machete.
The second clan member, Ko Kwong Tso-Faiis dropped head-first into a wooden box full of protruding nails, ripping his head to shreds as he tries to remove it.
When he tries to get the last three clan members in one fell swoop, the father fails and has to escape by jumping off a waterfalls after being seriously wounded.
The clan members think he is dead, but we know better, don't we? As the remaining clan members gloat in their perceived victory, the father returns to finish his revenge and we finally learn just what exactly is being kept in those covered cages.
They like raw meat and growl like a dog. Also, be aware that the version of the film I viewed was a composite print and contains hardcore footage during the rape scene including vaginal penetration by fingers and a shot of an erect penisbut seems to be missing some frames of gory violence.
He still comes off as the most sympathetic character here, as he's continually abused by the rest of the clan, refuses to take part in Ling's rape and has a pet mokkey named Kiki, who is his only real friend.
His constant cries of "Not my business! I was also bitterly disappointed to find out that it was only dogs being kept in those covered cages, especially with the buildup they were giving it. I was expecting maybe an even more feral, cannibalistic clan member, but finding out that they were only hungry German Shepherds was the film's biggest letdown.
The best scene comes when Ling's father is being chased by the hungry dogs and he gets them off his scent by feeding them pieces of Fu's body, who is buried nearby. The finale also shows that there are more mountain clans to replace the dead ones, as a trio of new degenerates watch and salivate over a new bunch of campers they see arriving in the forest.
They are chopped-up, thrown around, generally abused and used creatively in one death scene. Never legally available on U. Out of all the bad Bigfoot movies I have seen in my life, this inept, howl-a-minute fiasco has my vote for the most enjoyable of them all.
The film opens up with a badly manufactured Bigfoot abducting a trio of topless babes from the forest and taking them to his tastefully decorated cave. Bigfoot then disappears from view until the last five minutes of the film, as the story veers off from one tangent to another.
They run into four hippies and pretty soon our two college students are experimenting in free love and skinnydipping in a lake. Later on a duo of criminals with hunting rifles kidnap the group and demand to know the whereabouts of a cache of gold coins.
The crooks locate the coins at the cabin of a bearded old hermit but not before trying to rape the girls and roughing up the men. Bigfoot arrives in the nick of time, defeating the crooks and walking off into the sunset with the old hermit.As he travels to see his long lost daughter, sounds in his head make him a nervous wreck, mirrors set him off on an obsessive shaving spree that causes self-mutilation, and he becomes convinced that a radio transmitter is in his head and fingernail, leading to a stomach-churning mutilation scene. When he save Liza from a mad rapist He says to her, "Tell me that I am handsome! Meanwhile, in the newly-shot footage that interrupts the old footage every twenty minutes or so, a trio of American soldiers, led by the eyepatch-wearing Tom Paul John Stanners , try to rendezvous with Alexander, but are met with resistance by Commander Victor Anders Hallberg , who sends his men to kill the trio.
This sexploitation film has plenty of unanswered questions such as, "What happened to the girls in the cave? Gratuitous nudity and sex, 70's fashions including hip-high go go bootscampy dialogue and a dream sequence involving two naked girls wearing only gunbelts in a Wild West showdown are some of the weirdness on view in this short 62 minute film.
You may hate yourself for enjoying it, but there is no denying it's charm. One of my favorite discoveries of the past many years. Available at many video and department stores for under ten bucks. An Applause Productions, Inc. When their Uncle Barney Noble Willingham is shot dead by G-Man Bonney Dick MillerWilma and the girls take over his illegal whiskey business, but learn after a short while that this is not a business that women should be involved with, so they head out to California for a "better life".
The rest of the film details their exploits while they are on their way to California. Billy Jean and Polly decide to earn extra money by stripping at a smoker, which upsets Wilma to no end. She enters the smoker with pistols drawn and robs the place, which makes Wilma and the girls Public Enemy 1 with Bonney, who is always one step behind them.He tackles the case of a harassed newspaper reporter who has been complaining to the police about their failure to solve a series of murders. Jeff is set free by an unlikely ally who is after El Kadir's hidden loot and he goes about trying to free the women.
When their car breaks down, Wilma and the girls steal a car and money belonging to a crooked preacher and then head for the next town, where Wilma tries to cash a bad check at a bank.
Enter bank robber Fred Diller Tom Skerrittwho decides to pull a stickup at the bank at the same time.On August 6, , Justice Perell delivered reasons in which he held that the IAP documents would be subject to a fifteen-year retention period, during which a notice program to Survivors would be administered by the Commission or the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation. A Just a Gigolo 31 William Haines plays the role of a festive wild playboy British nobleman, for whom a marriage has been arranged by his relatives Ethan lets Napolean out of his jail cell and gives him weapons, a trust that is not looked upon as reasonable by some of the precinct's inhabitants. This leads to a bloody showdown between J.
Diller's partner is shot and killed, so Wilma and the girls pick up the slack and help Diller rob the bank. Wilma and Diller soon become lovers, which upsets Billy Jean because she had her eyes on him.
While at the horse races, Wilma meets con man William J. Baxter William Shatner and he becomes the newest member of Wilma's gang. Baxter becomes Wilma's newest lover, which now opens the door for Diller and Billy Jean to get it on Billy Jean even shares him with Polly and Wilma doesn't seem to mind!
Polly becomes pregnant she carries a rag doll with her throughout most of the film as a symbol of her child-like demeanor and is wounded when the quintet rob an oil well.
The screwed-up family dynamic of the group is put to the test when Wilma demands that Diller marry Polly and he tells Wilma that her really loves her. The gang then crash a party attended by rich, influential snobs.
After robbing then, the gang kidnaps snotty debutante Jane Kingston Joan Prather and hold her for a one million dollar ransom. Baxter proves how thin his skin is when he leaves the gang in fear, only to be captured by Bonney. He squeals like a pig and gives up the time and location of the ransom drop, which leads to a final big shoot-out between Wilma's gang and Bonney's police force.
Diller is killed in an act of self-sacrifice, but Wilma is also killed in the getaway, leaving Billy Jean and a pregnant Polly to survive on their own. This exploitation staple is what drive-in movies were all about: Plenty of nudity, a smattering of violence, car chases and lots of gunfights.
The violence is never too bloody, most of it being bloody bullet squibs or gun violence. Even though Diller got her retarded daughter Polly pregnant, Wilma is again sleeping with him at the end of the film. Though Wilma apparently dies for her various sins at the end of the film, Roger Corman who was known to milk a good concept until it spits out dust couldn't resist reviving her in the ill-advised sequel thirteen years later.
Look closely and you'll spot a very young Sally Kirkland topless, of course in the beginning and Paul Bartel also this film's Second Unit Director as a party guest at the debutante ball. The music soundtrack, which is banjo-heavy bluegrass, contains the nimble pickings of Greatful Dead frontman Jerry Garcia.
This is also the first film credit for actor Bill Paxton, who was a Set Dresser here. Unfortunately, most of her nude scenes in DRESSED were performed by a body double, but her death in an elevator is a shocking piece of 80's slasher cinema.
Why he didn't direct more films is a story that could fill a book, but at least most of his films are available in some format on home video for us to enjoy over and over again.
When Django finally realizes who they have kidnapped it turns out Terry has slept with quite a few government officials, which prompts Django to say, "They'd pay me to get rid of you! You ain't nothing but plain purple poison!
Since Terry is an embarrassment to the government, she is sent to a remote government work camp located deep in the jungle, where Warden Zappa Andy Centenera, who kicks a puppy just for the hell of it! Meanwhile, Django make the long trek on foot back to his jungle village, where perturbed girlfriend Blossom is pissed at him for kidnapping Terry and threatens to cut-off his balls with a machete In a hilarious scene, he fights her off with a plucked chicken, where they fall into a mud puddle and then make love!
Django and Blossom are the leaders of a group of "revolutionaries", although none of them are sure what they are revolting against. Group member Moreno Subas Herrero complains about the lack of female members, so he wonders out loud where they can find a couple of hundred women.
His latest victim is Lin Rizza Fabianwhom the Warden sexually abuses and then blackmails to become a prison snitch, using Lin's young daughter as insurance she will spill her guts when the time comes.
When Blossom gets sent to the work camp after she and her group perform a pretty embarrassing stab at being revolutionaries a funny scene involving a dud grenadeit leads to a series of events that culminates in boyfriend Django and the other male revolutionaries raiding the work camp and freeing the grateful female prisoners and all the bad guys getting their just desserts.
This being a 70's exploitation film, though, nearly everyone ends up dead by the film's end. Every exploitation element is touched upon, including plentiful nudity by nearly every female cast member; bloody violence; catfights; torture; gay stereotypes Sid Haig pretending to be a homosexual to get close to Vic Diaz is one of the funniest, if not one of the most offensive slap to gay people, scenes in 70's genre filmmaking ; and gun battles.
There's not a boring moment in this film and I wish that Karen McKevic made more movies after this because she not only had beauty; she also had a real screen presence What happened to her? Vic Diaz is a scream as gay guard Rocco it's one of his best early's roles and some of his dialogue is simply priceless as is his final comeuppance at the hands of the horny female prisoners.
Both are long OOP and command big bucks on the collectors market. Their freedom is short-lived, though, when they are betrayed and sold to white slave trader El Kadir Gordon Mitchell. As they are about to be loaded onto a ship, the ship's captain, Jeff Tony Kendallsaves them, steals a truck and drives them to safety.
Their truck breaks down, so Jeff leads them on a long walk through the desert, where they happen upon an oasis, swim nude in a lake and then are attacked and raped by some Arab nomads. After having their way with the women after knocking-out Jeff and killing one of the women, the nomads leave.
Nadia Vonetta McGee ends up missing, so Jeff and the women go looking for her. Meanwhile, El Kadir has sent out a hunting party to retrieve his "property".
Jeff and the girls come across a remote village inhabited by black burka-wearing women, so they send Sister Maria in to look for Nadia. She finds Nadia nude, tied-up and being whipped by a mute retarded Arab man, but before she can save Nadia, Sister Maria almost gets stoned to death by the burka-wearing women.
Jeff and the girls save the day and, after they kill some Arab marauders, they steal some horses and ride away. They run into some "policemen" and kill them when they try to rape the women and Jeff takes them to a castle in the mountains, only to find El Kadir and his men waiting for them.
Jeff is thrown into the dungeon and the girls including Sister Maria are forced to participate as playthings in one of El Kadir's drunken orgies. Jeff is set free by an unlikely ally who is after El Kadir's hidden loot and he goes about trying to free the women.
Unfortunately, during the ongoing gun battle, all but two women and Jeff make it out alive. Sister Maria sacrifices her own life to save Jeff and the two women, who ride off to safety in the film's conclusion. This badly-dubbed Italian-German co-production continuously finds new ways to degrade women rape is the most frequent methodbut the film is cold and impersonal, like watching a porn film without any "money shots".
I do give the film some points for the location shooting the mountain castle is impressivebut there's not much characterization, as all the women besides Sister Maria are interchangable and lack distinct personalities. Top-billed Vonetta McGee is wasted in a thankless role I believe she has the fewest lines of all the women in the film and was probably given the top spot to lure blaxploitation fans to this since McGee starred in three blaxploitation films in Fans of those films must have felt cheated for being falsely-lured into seeing this.
It's funny that a film about a bunch of female prison escapees would have absolutely no interesting female characters. So much for female empowerment. If that turns you on, you'll probably like this. New World Pictures handled the theatrical playdates in the United States. Tough-as-nails Marnie Collier Judy Brown is sent to a "Banana Republic" prison actually lensed in the Philippines for 99 years on a false murder conviction.
The prison's female warden, Miss Dietrich Christiane Schmidtmeris a Bible-quoting she-bitch who's not above murder to keep her prisoners in line. Bodine plans on escaping after she gets a smuggled-in letter from her revolutionary boyfriend telling her that he needs her badly, but someone snitches to Miss Dietrich about the letter and she has Bodine tortured, first by suspending her in a small bamboo cage in the blazing sun and then bringing her to a dungeon, where she is waterboarded and whipped by brutal head guard Lucian Kathryn Loder while some unknown person watches in the shadows.
Bodine is brought back to her cell bloody and bruised, now even more determined to escape and join her boyfriend.
Two black marketeers, Harry Sid Haig and his new partner Fred Jerry Franksmake weekly trips to the prison and supply the women prisoners with a wide range of goods, including drugs, cigarettes and smuggled information, but it all comes with a price, mainly sex.
When Miss Dietrich catches Alcott having sex with the inexperienced Fred, she becomes the next torture victim in the dungeon. Alcott is shocked with electricity by Lucian she attaches electrodes to Alcott's nipples and vagina while the same unknown person watches in the shadows.
The girls put their differences aside and plan an escape, using a cat and the unwitting duo of Harry and Fred in their attempt. It almost comes undone when junkie Harrad stabs Grear in the neck in a fit of jealous rage, killing her.
Collier is then tortured with a cobra by Lucian in the dungeon, but Alcott, Bodine and Ferrina Gina Stuart rescue her, overpower Lucian and discover the identity of the person hiding in the shadows it's Miss Dietrich, who gets her sexual jollies by watching prisoners tortured and killed!
The girls then break out of prison, but not everyone will escape with their lives. During the fatalistic, yet strangely satisfying, conclusion, all the women are either killed or recaptured, but not before Miss Dietrich receives her just rewards.
Hill only directed a handful of films in his career, yet he always seemed to know what audiences wanted: Namely, copious amounts of nudity and plenty of violence. Santiago are uncredited producers and it's easy to see why.
Besides Jack Hill's direction, the cast gives their all here, stripping-off their clothes, getting into catfights and, finally, working together to escape their hellhole.
Since the Japs just trounced us at Pearl Harbor, the General tells his men that they must go to the Philippines and defeat Tojo before the country is lost forever to the yellow menace. In the film proper, a group of Filipino freedom fighters must battle the Japanese and the guerillas to maintain their territory.
When the nine American soldiers agree to help the freedom fighters in their cause in a hilariously bad edit of old and new footagebut split up to do so, it gives the film an excuse to interrupt the main story every twenty minutes or so to splice in the new footage of the American soldiers firing their weapons at faceless enemy soldiers When the leader of the Japanese forces hears that the Americans sent over only nine soldiers to fight them, he says, "They're sending a mosquito to fight a buffalo!
The American soldiers, led by Cobra Frank Juhasz and Bazooka Mike Abbottsee their numbers being slowly thinned-out by a single Japanese soldier, who kills three of the squad before he is cornered and blows himself up with a grenade.
The squad who act more like high school jocks than a well-trained Special Forces squad then set a trap for an advance squad of guerillas, but the guerillas spot a lit cigarette and the word "Fuck" spelled-out with piss on the ground, both left there by careless American squad membersand almost escape the trap.
Meanwhile, the Filipino freedom fighters continue to fight the Japs and their guerilla cohorts and must now blow up a bridge that is an important thoroughfare for the Jap supply line. Can they do it? And what will become of the Americans? The dialogue, which consists mainly of exchanges like this between two American soldiers: They are the most careless and juvenile bunch of soldiers that you're ever likely to see.
Since the film is set during World War II, imagine my surprise in spotting 60's-era fighter jets, helicopters and weapons prominently displayed throughout.
That's partly what makes these films so endearing. The filmmakers just don't care about things so miniscule as coherency, matching shots or keeping within the proper timeline, as long as they can turn in a film that is feature length.
People do the most asinine things at the most inopportune times, the dialogue is ridiculous and the matching of old and new footage looks to have been done by a blind man.
This film has to look up just to be at ground level and that's what makes it so watchable.
Never available on home video in the U. In this chapter, a squad of American soldiers hire a Filipino named Alexander Sampson in an awful example of intercutting old and new footage, the old footage being an unreleased Filipino war actioner to go undercover and join the revolutionary group The New People's Freedom Army, who are looking for new recruits to help overthrow the government.
Alexander, along with a handful of new recruits, are blindfolded and brought by boat to the Freedom Army's training camp on an island somewhere in Malaysia, where they all go through basic training by the Freedom Army's leader, Abdul.
Alexander turns out to be the most gifted of the new recruits, so after the training sessions are over, Abdul puts Alexander in charge of his own squad o f soldiers and tells him to help "carry on the cause".
Alexander and his squad head for the mainland and join forces with a larger Freedom Army squad, where they plan on attacking government military outposts.
Meanwhile, in the newly-shot footage that interrupts the old footage every twenty minutes or so, a trio of American soldiers, led by the eyepatch-wearing Tom Paul John Stannerstry to rendezvous with Alexander, but are met with resistance by Commander Victor Anders Hallbergwho sends his men to kill the trio.
This leads to several scenes of gunfights and hand-to-hand combat. When the military forces attacks Alexander's camp and many Freedom Army members are killed or injured, the camp's leader believes "someone sold us down the river" and begins his search for the traitor.
Alexander finds himself in quite the conundrum when he falls in love with female Freedom Army member Terry and finds himself torn between his sense of duty and affairs rich taste of sisters~ the heart.
How will he resolve his problem? Will Tom meet Commander Victor for a showdown to the death in the finale? If you've seen any of Godfrey Ho's pastiche films, I think you already know the answers.
This is a particularly weak film, even for Godfrey Ho, and that's saying a lot. While there are some bloody action sequences, including Alexander scooping-up a man who just had both his arms blown off below the elbows played by an apparently real double-amputee, who looks like his stumps were dipped in stage bloodthe film itself is a bloody mess and doesn't make an ounce of sense.
For one, Alexander is sent to infiltrate the People's Army and then report back to Tom, but there are already so many traitors within the group, it's hard to believe that Alexander could possibly have any new intelligence to offer. The film really bogs down during the middle section, where Alexander gets into a battle with the military and gets his kneecap blown off, which results in the amputation of his leg.
Rather than retiring and taking it easy for the rest of his life, he agrees to help Tom in another badly edited sequence of old and new footage by continuing to stay undercover at the People's Army.
He simply straps-on a prosthetic leg and continues his mission, oblivious to the fact that the same people he is working for are the ones responsible for the loss of his leg!
The newly-shot footage is standard Godfrey Ho fodder: People duking it out or firing guns at each other, which offers nothing to the rest of the film Although Tom repeating "Get up and fight!
I would have shot him for real on the spot! As normal for these films, the English dubbing is a hoot "Tell that to the guy way down in Hell! Border Patrol cop, and his wife Jess Jeannie Wilson. While riding a horse alone in the desert, Joe watches as crooked Border Patrol cop Jake Wheeler Gerald McRaney shoots and kills a female wetback as she tries to escape after Jake raped her.
Joe and Dave go to headquarters to report the killing to Sheriff Lawrence Mitchell Wilford Brimleybut Jake is in the room and it's at this time that Joe realizes that Jake is a cop. Joe tells Dave that Jake is the killer and when they go to the scene of the crime, the body is missing Jake had one of his cronies rebury the body in another location.
With no victim to be found, it's Joe's word against Jake's and even Dave has a hard time believing it. Just to be sure, Dave has his friend Warner Warner Glennan expert tracker, go over the crime scene again. He finds a trail to follow and they find the girl buried in a new grave. Warner tracks the guy that reburied her and Dave arrests him, but Jake kills him with automatic sniper fire to keep him from talking.
Sheriff Mitchell begins to suspect Jake when his alibi for the girl's murder doesn't pan out, but he can't do anything without more proof among other reasons to be disclosed later. Joe and Dave cross the border to get proof of Jake's illegal women-selling business, where we learn that Sheriff Mitchell was Jake's business partner.
When Jake threatens Jess' life and then kills Dave in a scene that's pretty hard to watcha wounded Joe must find a way to bring Jake down. Joe travels down to Mexico on a tip from a remorseful Sheriff Mitchell to get revenge the old-fashioned way, using the same shotgun to kill Jake that Jake used to kill Dave.HELPLESS SISTERS 3- LATEST 2018 NOLLYWOOD MOVIE
It takes three blasts to kill Jake, but Joe seem to relish every pull of the trigger. Made during summer hiatus inthis film must have come as a shock to fans of the series, especially Parker's death at the hands of McRaney who, at the time, wasn't really known for playing bad guys He showed us much later that he would excel at it, especially on HBO's Western series DEADWOOD.
Even though Wilford Brimley gets top billing, he has very little to do here besides looking concerned and trying to atone for his sins in the end. The script, by Dennis A. Pratt who also plays the role of Connie, one of Jake's menconcentrates on Gerald McRaney's and Jack Lucarelli's who's rather bland characters, making this a study in contrasts.
The gauntlet in the apartment building that Jameson Parker and Lucarelli who are both the Producers on this have to shoot their way through, resulting in Parker's death at McRaney's hands, is expertly filmed and a nail-biter. Director Gary Grillo this is his only movie directorial credit, although he did direct an episode of Parker's and McRaney's series and was Assistant Director on many films, such as BLOODY MAMA - keeps things moving at a brisk clip and films nearly every scene with an over-abundance of dusty atmosphere.
It makes you thirsty just watching it. It enjoyed this film, thanks to McRaney's badass performance and some well-staged gunfights. Give it a try. A Lightning Video Release. I have one question that has been bothering me for years: Has Wilford Brimley ever been young and, if he was, did he come out of his mother's womb with that beard?
It's apparent that Nancy has a traitor amongst her ranks, but she gets fired from her position because she was in charge of the operation. Now that Nick who for some reason is now called "Bolt" has all three cases, he still needs Nancy to open them because all the cases are rigged with bombs that will explode if not opened using the right code.
She gives up the codes rather easily, but it seems Nick really only has two of the cases and they are both the dummies.
Can you guess who that will be? The version available on U. VHS is shorn of nearly twenty minutes and clocks-in at barely 72 minutes long. Sadly, most of the missing footage seems to deal with Peter O'Brian's character, who is called "Bolt" throughout the film even though in the closing credits he's listed as "Nick Stewart".
Besides the opening scene, where O'Brian is torturing a man with a machete and a hand-powered drill a huge chunk of this sequence seems to be missing, as it opens on a jarring notewe don't see much of him until the finale, which severely minimalizes his bad guy status One funny bit of dialogue has Rothrock mockingly calling him "Rambo".
There are plenty of chases, stunts, bloody bullet squib deaths including the little girl and Ms. Rothrock's high-kicking abilities, but by editing out much of the exposition scenes, this version of the film deprives fans of Indonesian insanity one of the major enjoyments of watching these films: Try to find the full version instead.
It's out there if you do your homework. Produced by Gope T. Samtani for Rapi Films. Not available on DVD. They stop in a small Texas town for a bite to eat, unaware that crooked cops Detective West Joe Estevez and Detective Carter Dean Nolen have brought some Mafia goons to this town, cut the phone lines and are waiting to ambush Sgt.
Towers and kill Montel, because his testimony could put a lot of crooked cops and Mafia chieftans behind bars. Two local yokels, Alex J. Scott Guy and Jake Shane Boldingrow suspicious of all the new faces in town who seem to outnumber the local population 5 to 1 and end up helping Sgt.
Towers fight the bad guys. When West tries to kill Montel while he is taking a shit in the bathroom of the town's diner, Towers shoots West he only wings him in the headthen head to the town's bar, where they meet feisty Sarah Barri MurphyAlex's girlfriend.
When the crooked cops kill the town sheriff Jack Gould and Jake's girlfriend Lori Tracy SpauldingJake and Alex who are avid hunters go to the bar to lend a hand to Towers, while Sarah tries to find a way out of town and get help. She fails miserably and is taken prisoner. When West and his men surround the bar, Towers has no choice but to trust Montel.
He gives Montel a gun and the quartet are able to escape the bar and go to Alex's house where, just like any good Texan, he has a stash of automatic weapons and hand grenades. When West and his goons surround Alex's house and threaten Sarah's life, Montel turns hero and saves her life.
West and Montel agree to go at it mano-a-mano, but Montel pulls a fast one and shoots West dead. Towers lets Montel walk away to freedom, but promises to recapture him some day. It has no action. When Joe Estevez who is absolutely horrible here says to bartender Sarah, "Where I come from, a buck-fifty doesn't pay for the ice!
The most glaring budgetary restriction is the town itself. It's only populated by five residents and it tries to unconvincingly explain this away by telling us that everyone's away hunting! Does that include all the women and children, too? We know that there are supposed to be children in this town because a schoolbus comes into play lamely, I might add in the quartet's escape from the bar.
By the time we get to the film's money shot, the shootout at Alex's house, the viewer has long-since lost interest. Joe Estevez looks like he's in a coked-out haze throughout this film and either screams out his lines or delivers them in a wide-eyed stare.
I'm sure brother Martin Sheen is very proud. This film is about as much fun as slicing your dick open with a paring knife and dipping it in gasoline.
Director McCormick who sometimes uses the name "Max Raven" made a bunch of regional Texas-lensed action films during the 90's. Let's hope they're not as bad as this one. Try it and you may agree with me. As soon as the prisoners step off the bus, most of them are picked-off by a huge gang equipped with sniper rifles with silencers, before Ethan pulls prisoner Napoleon Wilson Darwin Joston; RATTLERS - out the bus and puts him in a cell.
For some reason never made clear in the filmall the gangs in town have banded together and have only one thing on their mind: Taking over Precinct 13 and killing everyone inside An earlier scene shows a little girl [Kim Richards; THE CAR -before becoming a national joke on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reality show during the - season] getting an ice cream cone from a truck [whose driver has just been killed and replaced by a gang member] and then getting unmercifully shot in the chest by a smiling gang member and dying on the sidewalk.
The look she gives after being shot will live in your memory far a long time and whenever you mention this film to someone, this is the scene they immediately remember and rightfully so. It's one of the 70's most powerful moments in an action film. Ethan and Napoleon form an uneasy alliance as the gangs first shoot out all the windows and then start picking-off the people in the precinct one-by-one.
Ethan lets Napolean out of his jail cell and gives him weapons, a trust that is not looked upon as reasonable by some of the precinct's inhabitants. When the gang go on a full-out assault on the precinct, the nay-sayers change their minds almost immediately, as Napoleon proves to be a huge asset.
Making them silent was a gutsy move by Carpenter, because we really have no idea why this gang are doing what they are doing. Their only motivation seems to be kill, kill, kill, something that was new to the genre of action films at the time.
While the acting is nothing to write home about, Darwin Joston has one killer final bit of dialogue as the film ends and will have you smiling from ear-to-ear.
This is a great action film to be seen with a group of friends, because if they have never seen it, they will thank you later and if they have seen it before, you probably will never have anyone give you a thumbs-down.
