Marvelously awesome thriller with great style!!!
25 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

This movie has been a favorite of mine ever since I first saw it when I was seven years old. It was released in the summer of 1986 and I still remember being at a local video store with one of my brothers and noticing a movie poster for it displayed in one of the windows. When I realized that Anthony Michael Hall was the star of the show, I was astounded because everything else I had seen him in before Out Of Bounds was a comedy. Even though I was not permitted to watch anything R rated as far as my folks were concerned, my brother agreed to rent the movie for me so that we could watch it together while our parents weren't home. I watched it with him and loved every minute of it. Anthony Michael Hall's name in the movie was Daryl Cage and he was the heroic main character. The whole time I was hoping that he was going to conquer the bad guy as my pulse was pounding during the thrillingly intense scenes and I was relieved and happy when he did in the end. I must admit however, Anthony Michael Hall didn't do a very good job of acting in some parts of this movie but he was enjoyable to watch. Jenny Wright who played the part of Dizz was beautiful with her punk rocker hair style and sexy natural curves. Jeff Kober played Roy Gaddis who of course was the bad guy that killed Daryl's brother and sister in law. Jeff sure is a handsome guy and he did a fantastic job portraying the role of the scuzzy psychotic drug dealer. Another thing I love about the movie is the brief appearance by Siouxsie And The Banshees performing "Cities In Dust" in the Dirtbox Bar. All together this movie is exhilaratingly entertaining and one of the best ones I've ever seen. Out Of Bounds rocks!!!
