Although the Simpsons character of McBain predates this film, The Simpsons (1989) were forced to drop the character's name for a number of years, due to difficulties created by the release of an action film called "McBain". The Simpsons kept the character in the show, but referred to him by his "actual" name, Rainer Wolfcastle, until the difficulties with the film "McBain" passed. See more »

Santos is dead. You remember Santos? This is his sister.
Yeah, I remember Santos. It's a hell of a thing they did to him. But there's nothing we can do about it now.
You know, I get up in the morning and I go to work. I go to the same bar each night and drink the same beer. I laugh, I talk. But when I saw Santos on tv, I got jealous. Because, he was doing what he did best.
What, you miss the smell of napalm in the morning?

First of all i'd just like to say this movie rawked more than any of the recent crap that hollywood has cooked up out of its bowels. McBain is a true action film with more violence than most viewers can handle. It has all of the classic elements of a late 80's/early 90's action film....the random gratuitous acts of violence (ie. when Walken and crew go in to confront the drug dealers to get money they just show up and kill them rather than letting them live and just taking their money), the snapping of necks, the guys on fire, the guys that get blown off buildings, and of course the guys who are on fire that get blown off of buildings. Walken is at his finest in this picture delivering memorable lines such as, "let's go sit..........out on the deck." and others that make this film a top buy off of the clearence rack at the local video store. if you have a bloodlust for unnecessary random acts of violence rent this movie today and satisfy your thirst.
