90s Video Action Stars Part IV – Gary Daniels, Joe Lara, C. Thomas Howell and Thomas Ian Griffith

Tom Jolliffe with the latest delve back to the video shelf with 90’s video action stars [read part one, part two and part three]…

With so many 90’s action icons worked through already, you’d imagine I was beginning to struggle for subjects to cover. You’d be mistaken. It feels like I’ve barely scratched the surface of 90’s ass-kick specialists. This only goes to show that slightly wistful post-century turn which saw new kids on the block becoming fewer and further between. Inevitably as big ‘actors’ moved in on the big screen action genre in the 90’s, the next decade would see some heavy hitters becoming Dtv action specialists themselves with the likes of Christian Slater, Cuba Gooding Jr and Val Kilmer becoming stalwarts, then beyond them even bigger stars fell into video land like Nicolas Cage, Bruce Willis and John Travolta.

Keith Strandberg interview: No Retreat No Surrender

Craig Lines May 3, 2017

As a kid, this movie was everything to me. It was a 15 cert so a little bit edgy, but still simple and wholesome enough for young me to totally ‘get it’. I had tears streaming down my face the first time I watched it, I was so invested in the final fight.

An El Guapo Exclusive! Interview With Undisputed III Fight Coordinator Larnell Stovall

// Everyone loves a good martial arts movie. One where two guys (or girls) face off against each other in a battle to see who's the best. Or it could be one lone warrior against many. Whatever it is, martial art and fighting movies have been around for a long time and will continue to be around as long as people have the money to pay or rent a movie where some dude kicks another dude right in his face. Speaking of fight films, Undisputed III is the second sequel about a fighting tournament that takes place in a prison. What's so great about the Undisputed films is, each one has been better than the last. Scott Adkins returns as Boyka, the bad guy from Undisputed II who was defeated by George Chambers (Michael Jai White). Suffering from a bum knee at the hands of George, Boyka is now a janitor who no longer fights.
