Or as Tom Servo once put it, "Amazingly Idiotic Pictures presents..."
10 November 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In the beginning AIP stood for American International Pictures; then after the firm was defunct, Samuel Z. Arkoff (himself now defunct also) started Arkoff International Pictures - "Nobody else seemed to want 'em," he said of the initials. Then the torch was passed to the bargain-basement purveyor of straight-to-video tosh, Action International Pictures.

This video compilation of clips from many of their movies may be named in the manner of "That's Entertainment," but this AIP sampler just spares luckless viewers the chore of actually having to sit through the movies they come from, because nearly all the clips are useless (the law of averages demands a couple be watchable, such as the one with a gym that kills customers in which a woman is roasted inside a tanning machine; and the one with soldiers battling enemies in their dreams... but the fact that more than ten years after seeing this tape I still have no real desire to track down the movies should tell you something).

"That's Action" is made even worse by the by-the-numbers presenting style of Robert Culp, who being a proper actor has no business being here; and by the poor writing and "directing" of David A. Prior. The producers of Asian action movies have nothing to worry about.
