Exhilarating and Unforgettable!
28 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do you like cornball 80's action movies? Do you like those movies to star kickboxers you never heard of before? Do you like movies that feature absolutely nothing shown on the cover? Do you like bad editing?

...but most importantly...do you like Vernon Wells?

My answer to all of those questions is: HELLS YES! And this movie has it all and more (or less).

No, I am not joking about the cover thing either. Even the screenshots on the back of the case aren't in the film. There's no awesome shirtless chain swing while choking a guy with a desert eagle. There is no scene where a woman in a white bra is flying from an explosion, or a black bra lady running for her life. BUT what there IS, is a ton of 80's cheese and Vernon "Chainmail Vest" Wells being a total badass...and isn't that worth thr price of admission alone?

Stranglehold is a perfect stocking stuffer for anyone who loves greatastic action and whoawesome plots. Buy it...shoot, buy three or four of them and pass them out to your friends. You will thank me. It's worth baderiffic every moment.
