    Kill Switch

    ★★★½

    This one was hilarious! Brutal over the top fights from Seagal (well mainly his stunt double), cheesy one liners, inappropriate dialogue, gore, Seagal calling everybody "baby" and a poor man's Red Dragon as the bad guy. It's not as solid as Pistol Whipped or Urban Justice but it's just as fun.

  • Attrition

    Attrition

    ★★★½

    This time Seagal plays Axe (not kidding) a former Seal, or something, who has chosen the righteous path of Buddha. When a Thai girl with mythical powers goes missing, Seagal gets the band back together to rescue her. A big step up in quality from his recent efforts, with lots of fights shot convincingly in Thailand and Hong Kong. Italian blu-ray presentation is great, though the handful of scenes in Mandarin have only Italian or no subtitles (not a deal breaker). The only other option is a Japanese disc which likely fares no better.

    Death Wish 3

    ★★★★½

    What a crazy entry in the series! All seriousness is thrown out the window (with quite a few bodies as well) as Bronson cleans up the slums of New York with a Magnum, machine gun and even a bazooka. I love how the whole town finally gets in on the chaos, including little old ladies.

    ★★★★½

    I first watched this classic on a badly framed VHS under the title "The Gates of Hell" back in 1998. I still have that tape today, though this time I watched the new blu-ray. Always a good time to be had.
