Trivia

The bar fight scene was filmed at a genuine Texas honky tonk, The Melody Ranch, in Waco Texas. Dubbed, "Central Texas largest dance floor", The Melody Ranch is still in operation and still looks much the same, both inside and out, as it does in the movie. See more »

An amazing collection of incredible stunts.
30 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the greatest things to ever happen to me, was finding this film, for sale in a crappy video store(called Gruntz), near Atlantic Beach, NC. We picked it up on the way to our weekend at the beach. We watched it once the first night, twice the next day, and another five times in the months since. "Action USA" is not the best movie ever, but it is, hands down, the most awesome! I want to buy the rights to this film, and put it out on DVD, just so other people can see it. The stunts are the best I've ever seen, and they just keep coming.The dialog is even better. You will not believe Ross Hagan's ability to spew the most wicked one-liners, while delivering back-hand slaps.
