Professional Reviews

"...ACTION JACKSON certainly lives up to its title....Weathers is up to the task of filling the screen as a larger-than-life force to be reckoned with..." 02/17/1988

Find-A-Video 0 of 10
Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed of Rocky fame) stars as the title character in this satisfying panoply of car chases, explosions and fist fights.... this pyrotechnic juggernaut short on script and short on ideas, but so what, it's enjoyable, combustible fun.

Chicago Sun-Times 0 of 10
Action Jackson is a movie where some of the parts are good, but none of them fit and a lot of them stink... Action Jackson feels like two different movies that ran into each other by accident. That could be funny, but this time it's sick, because the movie's comic scenes don't go well with its particularly nasty streak of violence... (Vanity) shows a natural screen presence and easiness under pressure. I had the feeling, watching Vanity in this unhappy movie, that she could play anyone in any movie and make it work.Ê - Roger Ebert
