"MacGruber" wanted to be this film
16 July 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It's obvious where the filmmakers of "MacGruber" got their influences for their film when you view, "Circle of Fear." This late-80's romp through the Manila underworld would certainly give the MacGruber character a run for his money! Plus, in the first 30 minutes of this film, there are more real explosions, car chases, parkour, stray bullets and bystander death and mayhem than in the entire "MacGruber" enterprise. Plus a cock-fight to boot. I laughed at the many stoic characters who really do want their wishes to come true - both good guy and bad guy. Some sullied sleaze sprinkled throughout to entice/horrify (we are dealing with the sex-slave trade, you know). When you are seeking "80's Action" -- look no further. This is the REAL THING! ENJOY!
