Trivia

None of the stories in the film were adapted from the comic book "Two-Fisted Tales". "Showdown" shares a title with a story from issue 37, but in this film is a Western rather than a war story. See more »

Not Given Enough Credit
17 February 2004 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

If you don't understand the plots in these short stories, you shouldn't be watching anything for people over the age of 18. This is actually well mastered and put into a thinking sense. This just follows along the 'Tales From The Darkside', 'Tales From The Crypt', and 'Creepshow' genre. Not too much to make us laugh, but to give a twist on certain events or bring a plot about from an angle you would not think of normally.

There are 3 stories and it is agreed the last one 'Yellow' is one of the best. It stars Kirk Douglas and his real life son Eric. Using the Father/Son roles the son is brought before his father as a coward to be sentenced to death and his father wants to show everyone his son is a brave soldier.

Definitely worth watching for a twist on life. You'll think this was an episode out of 'The Outer Limits' or 'Twilight Zone'.
