Sleazie And Cheesie 80's Detective Morality Tale

With more holes than a sunken U-boat, and more cheese than a medium pizza, Kinjite still manages to entertain those who are fond of Bronson, or those who are fans of the more gritty action films of the era. The film has strong moments, but it also suffers at times from overly lazy dialogue, direction and overall storytelling, and it's hard to forget the painfully bad 80's music in this film. The fight scenes are also far from great, however there is enough grit, sleaze and action to make the film a worthy watch for many. The film is undoubtedly a fairly confused morality tale, or perhaps a morality tale within a confused society is the better way of describing it. In the end, the film does rely on a sort of karmic justice to satisfy it's audience, and to a decent degree, it works, at times however it just leaves us asking some very strange questions. Of other note, there is an early but very small appearance by Danny Trejo in the film, as well as a decent performance from a very young Nicole Eggert, as well as a strong performance by the little known but hard to take your eyes off of Amy Hathaway. Worth a look for some, but not to be touched with a ten foot pole by others. My rating... 5.5/10

How would Lieutenant Crowe respond to Judge Ito, manga, sushi, and Pokemon Go?

I can only wonder how Lieutenant Crowe (Charles Bronson in a role almost made for him I guess) would respond now to "Japanese influence and infiltration" in American society such as manga, sushi, and Pokemon Go? I also wonder how Lieutenant Crowe would have felt about the US military bases in Japan? Or Tokyo Disneyland? Hopefully the Lieutenant would show some respect to Judge Lance Ito if the Lieutenant had to present evidence in court. Maybe a sequel should deal with Lieutenant Crowe realizing that not all Asians are "the same", just as not all Europeans are "all the same", and that some people cannot tell the difference between Americans and Canadians and Germans and Irish and Scottish. I'd love to hear Lieutenant Crowe's on post-apartheid South Africa. I wonder if the Japanese or Asian actors who appeared in this movie had any idea what they were getting into. I know actors are professionals who have to earn a living, and Hollywood roles for Japanese or Asian actors aren't abundant, so I guess they had to be professional about it and scrap for any Long Duk Dong role out there.

great rear view! ooh yum, pity about the rest

I saw this years ago at a drive-in theater. The projectionist was my pal, and he joked, for years afterward, about old Charles always rushing in to spoil the fun. Yeah, the movie's main appeal lay in that first scene. Guys are guys, whatcha expect? Okay, laddish humor aside, I finally got to it on DVD two-and-a-half decades later. And there is that promising start, clearly showing why Nicole Eggert got to be Summer Quinn, but then, aw what an old wet blanket this is! Charles Bronson cut a debonair action hero... back in the day. But quit while you are ahead. Geriatric, little more than a well-dressed scarecrow, taking on hoodlums far less than half his age? Worst of all, there is no fire in his actions. He parrots lines from a script that has loads of appeal, but there is no conviction in his words. He is an empty shell, the drying husk of a dead insect. Hoodlums would have laughed at the grandpa, and they'd have p**d on his shoes. Afterward, they'd use him a punching bag. That's reality. He was too old to play a father, he should have been the much-opinionated grandfather, with the action left to some younger guy hungry for the part. Fueled by grandfather's wisdom. For, yes, people, we live in a sick society, and we gotta take care of our own. THe kids, and the elderly... That scene with the Rolex, besides being entirely unconvincing, how deeply tragic, the weak effort of the former action hero. Such feeble movements. And when he points that gun, he seems trembling, unsteady. With Charles in the lead, utterly doomed idea. For the Bronson fans out there, I am not being disrespectful. But you have an indefensible case here, the guy is the very epitome of miscast. Too old, and fragile. RavenGlamDVDCollector was only here for Nicole Eggert... Better than BAYWATCH! Hell, yes, I'm a guy, and a guy will be a guy... Rear view, ten out of ten. (By the way, William Shatner was her Dad on T.J. HOOKER, and he had a similar attitude...)
