Within the realm of film, I feel that there is nothing better than a good action movie. I constantly hunger for more of these films and spend many a night searching for a good, pulse-pounding flick that will satisfy my desire for excitement.
However, besides the triple AAA-summer seat-filler it can be quite difficult to keep track of these films. It can be even harder to know what product you are getting when you decide to pop in, or download a particular film. You may even come across an actor or two whose work you wish to follow be it when they are taking katana to the necks of criminals, or clashing with ninjas who somehow originated from the Deep South.
Luckily, The Good, The Tough, & The Deadly by David J. Moore helps any avid action fan do just that. Filled with a number of informative reviews about films from the most well known films with the likes of Blade to cheesy and often overlooked examples like From Noon Till Three when wanting to sink your teeth into this beloved drama few books prove as effective. Honestly, any book that recommends any form of Charles Bronson film is worth looking into.
Everything you might need to know about possible Saturday-night couch parties lies within the confines of this wonderful aid. Inside there are honest and succinct reviews upon each film, coupled with the year of its make, and even the format of its media making it quite easy to find. There are interviews conducted with a number of people who have helped bring these films to life and deserve recognition for helping make these actions films for the general population to enjoy.
