En route to his ancestral home in Georgia, one of his friends gives him a gun that fires grenades, smoke bombs, steel balls, rockets, and several other types of projectiles.

The hero puts the gun under the floorboards of the porch, where it remains until very near the end of the movie.

A true action classic
14 April 2002 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

I saw this one for the first time back in 1989 at the age of twelve. What a rush it was and love at first sight so to say. Blastfighter manage to serve us really good actionscenes for its time and keeps the excitement all the way to end credits. Michael Sopkiw got potential to be something more than he became, but as we all know, the moviebusiness can be very tough. Blastfighter remain a good b-action flick for many viewers, but for me a little more than that. This movie will be linked to nice childhood memories and for me it is a true action classic.
