In the late 1980s, the Detroit Red Wings worked to finally break their decades long Stanley Cup drought by extracting players from the Soviet Union, and in the process, changed the way North American hockey is played.
Excellent documentary. Covers the the chronology of the genre with a shout out to the early action stars such as Steve McQueen and Clint Eastwood. Progresses on on through the 70s into the 80s with buddy cop thrillers, and the ever evolving muscle bound action stars like Stallone and Schwarzenegger. Then follows the trend through the 90s where more grounded actors were brought in doing their own action in films like The Matrix and and The Rock. progresses on to the modern day with with recent successes in the John Wick franchise and Deadpool. Loads of fun with a lot of valuable insight from some of the best filmmakers that this great genre gave us.
Very well edited with lots of footage from the movies in question. An impressive list of film stars from behind and in front of the camera. You can clearly tell that this project was a labour of love.
Part of me thought only give this 9/10 because it would have been nice to see some more of the the main stars such as Stallone or Schwarzenegger interviewed on camera, but I feel that would have changed the tone. This is a fan documentary made by the fans for the fans. Even when this this includes many of the actual filmmakers themselves.
I cannot say fairer than that so 10/10.
The director Oliver Harper is is hands down one of my favourite YouTube content creators when it comes to movie retrospectives and reviews. An absolute gentleman that knows his stuff and has a a great future ahead of him if he continues with work like this.
