    The Mole People

    ★★★

    This Sumerian civilization, man. Civil they are not. As if having slaves isn't bad enough, they really beat the shit out of them, young women are being sacrificed to keep the numbers under control and their answer to anything that threatens their beliefs is death and destruction.

    ★★★½

    Bring out all your superheroes, tear down all the CGI cities you want or destroy complete planets for all I care, I will always prefer this kind of pure action. And Baxley was quite good at it in those years. Dolph Lundgren too, that's a pretty sweet roundhouse kick early on, but his ruthless cop is also having a bad day as his partner goes down. In comes a new one. A by the book fed. That means male bonding…
