Signal One, we have a bad movie in our midst
11 March 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Why is this movie funny, yet it's an action drama. Because Mark Jacko Jackson, in his mind, thinks he can act, and when he does, it's funny. He spouts lines like "Lady, people do get hurt" or with a snarl "Oh, you drink your milk off of a saucer, ya big pussy, now F off". But Jacko is the prime reason this B grade actioner, shot around Sydney, works. Partnered with avenging cop Jacko, is another lousy actor, Christopher Atkins, who at least, puts a little bit of character into his performance, than of normal. He plays Jacko's new sidekick, Martin Vale, who at first really bangs heads with his new partner, Jack (Jacko-what coincidence) go after the baddies who took down Jacko's mate. How cliché'd is this? The slow brother of a guy, an associate of the baddies, has a very important briefcase, that is worth killing for. He's hiding out near the wharfs, taking refuge in a warehouse west of the city centre. When the backward's brother's killed, older brother comes running scared. I think you can fill in the rest of the story. While not meaning to be, Signal One, is funny at the aspect of it being a weak movie, and a weak story to boot, with a real nasty scene near it's finale, that's gives it some bite, involving a female fetale (Virginia Hey-Mad Max 2, Prisoner) with scissors who Jacko goes home with. While she's making a better appetizer, our rather pathetic loner of a cop Jacko, thinks it's his lucky night. Truly, this is one of the funniest movie in the flick. When likable Atkins visits the fitness centre, Hey frequents, and asks the receptionist if she's seen his partner, she says, "Yes, I did. I thought it was really weird though". ATKINS: "Why?" RECEPTIONIST: "You ever get a look a him". I don't think, we ever found out if Jacko lives or dies either. While being a trashy movie, of poor quality, and acting from not only it's leads, Signal One, is still a entertaining popcorn/soda watch, with a thrilling car chase in it's starting, that gives it some other oomph. There are some scenes that are truly garbage, I can tell you, movie connisseur, that I am, like when a budding rock group invade the privacy of Mr Slow in that warehouse. But honestly the flick is worth it's view alone for Jacko, even though unlike Atkins, his character here, isn't that likable, or really, not that worth caring about.
