Megaforce (1982) is, to say the least, hardly a picture you'd look for at the Oscars. On the other hand, it earned me and my new family enough to buy our first house; so I'm not about to knock it, either. See more »

Trivia:

Was one of 30 (out of 2,500) applicants chosen for London's Central School of Speech and Drama, following his college graduation. See more »
