The Delivery

When a Boston mob boss goes missing, a power struggle breaks out among the remaining crime bosses. It sounds like a pretty generic plot, which is why Madso's War is a pretty generic movie. There is nothing you haven't seen before, and plenty that you have,all in much better mob films.

Watch: 'Madso's War' Gets Sexy in This Exclusive Clip

If as a kid you loved walking the aisles of your local video store and picking out vaguely trashy, straight-to-video titles and watching (and most likely making fun of) them with some like-minded friends, then have we got a movie for you.  It's called Madso's War, was written by Battle: Los Angeles scribe Christopher Bertolini and last week Fox dropped it on a DVD store shelf near you.   And this week we've got a clip for you-- and it's amazing in a probably unintended, this-should-be-on-vhs-in-the-'90s kind of way.  Plus, where else can you expect to find the hottie lead of the straight-to-video Tekken movie (Kelly Overton) seduced by the star of Anacondas: The Hunt For the Blood Orchid (Matthew Marsden)?  Don't worry, it's a Safe For...

Director: Jonathan Liebesman.

Writers: Christopher Bertolini.

There have been a couple of science fiction entries, in recent history, that involve an attacking alien force, taking Los Angeles. Skyline released in November of 2010, to tepid reviews. Now, Battle: Los Angeles comes in, not with a ho-hum but with a holy s^%^! Released in theatres March 11th, this second film takes an intimate view of a platoon of Marines, in the thick of an alien invasion. This unit is led by Staff Sergeant Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) and not since James Cameron's Aliens, has a science fiction film looked at the Marines with such detail.
