Have you ever had your bones scraped, Mr. Roth?
I hear it is not a pleasant experience. First the needle pierces the skin, leaving only the smallest of marks. The bone is scraped away by the gentle movement of the needle until it reaches the marrow.

"Armed Response" is one of Fred Olen Ray's earliest directorial efforts, and it also less schlocky than some of his other ones, closer to an actual legitimate action film (it's hard to believe he would make a film as unbelievably bad as "Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers" only two years later). It has a fairly complicated plot, which would be hard to summarize in a single paragraph, and a cast that's a B-movie fan's dream (where else could you find Lee Van Cleef and Michael Berryman together?), though it must be noted that David Carradine is particularly awful in this movie. (**1/2)
