Product Overview

For the first time together in an exclusive Warner Bros. Triple Feature comes three spectacular action-packed films: The Last Boy Scout, Dead-Bang, and Action Jackson!

The Last Boy Scout: The Super Bowl of action movies, a flat-out blitz of excitement, blow-you-away special effects and hilarious gimme-five humor set against the world of pro football. Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans star as a seedy detective and a disgraced quarterback, teaming to dodge ambushes, fire off one-liners and bust chops. When the going gets tough, they get tougher. And funnier. They came to play. And to settle a score in this raging fireball where bigger is better, hits are harder and bad guys end up deader.

Action Jackson: Like a blast from a .44 magnum, Carl Weathers (Predator, Rocky) makes Action Jackson a hero who delivers the goods in charisma and excitement. He plays Detroit Police Sgt. Jericho Jackson, pitted against the brutal thugs of ruthless auto tycoon Peter Dellaplane (Craig T. Nelson), who's out to murder his way to political power. Jackson's also involved with Dellaplane's beautiful wife Patrice (Sharon Stone)--and his exotic mistress Sydney (singer Vanity). Framed up and hunted down by his fellow officers, Jackson sets up a desperate showdown that hurls Action Jackson toward a heart-stopping climax.

Dead-Bang: Jerry Beck's life is on the skids. The one thing he has going for him is police work. His street smarts and instinct for trouble have catapulted him onto the trail of a gang of murderous white supremacists - and into a bullet-frenzied firestorm in their subterranean Colorado headquarters. It's a ride without handrails, seat belts or brakes, a headlong plunge into the heroics of a law enforcer pushed to the max.

Editors Note
Note THE LAST BOY SCOUT: Bruce Willis stars as Joe Hallenbeck, a disillusioned former Secret Service agent who has hit rock bottom as a detective for hire. His marriage is on the rocks, his adolescent daughter has a smart mouth, he drinks too much, and he's broke. Hallenbeck takes an assignment protecting Cory (Halle Berry), the stripper girlfriend of Jimmy Dix (Damon Wayans), a former professional football player banned from the league for gambling. When Cory is murdered gangland style, Hallenbeck teams up with the former football hero to find the killers. Their search leads them deep into the world of professional football, politics, legalized gambling and sadistic hitmen. LETHAL WEAPON screenwriter Shane Black wrote the script for this violent, action-packed thriller directed by Tony Scott (TOP GUN, TRUE ROMANCE). Willis plays Hallenbeck with a sadistic glint in his eye and a deathwish. Wayans is convincing as Dix, an athlete who loses everything when he's banned from the game he loves and turns to drugs for consolation. ^DEAD-BANG: Don Johnson stars as homicide detective Jerry Beck, a very different law-enforcement type than his career-making role in television's MIAMI VICE. Because of his dedication to his work, Jerry's personal life has disintegrated, and he's in the throes of a divorce. On Christmas Eve, an African American storekeeper is murdered, and, minutes later, an L.A. cop also goes down; Jerry is assigned to both cases. His research turns up the name Bobby Burns (Frank Military), a member of a white-supremacist organization who's currently on his way to a mass gathering of like-minded hate junkies in Oklahoma. The detective's investigation is joined by FBI agent Kressler (William Forsythe), a by-the-book type who does little but get in Jerry's way. Because of his sometimes unorthodox methods, Jerry is asked by his commander to be cleared for duty by the police psychiatrist or be taken off the case. When he can't stop laughing because he thinks the man looks like Woody Allen, it seems that Jerry's days on the case are numbered. DEAD BANG, loosely based on a true story, is a fun, tongue-in-cheek cop melodrama held together by Johnson's entertaining performance.^ACTION JACKSON: An auto tycoon wants to become a political kingmaker and only a Harvard law graduate turned police officer by the name of Jackson stands in his way. With the help of a nightclub singer, Jackson starts a one-man crusade to stop the tycoon's destructive course.

Review [Dead] John Frankenheimer's direction is taut but rather workmanlike. He keeps the action moving but doesn't give it much personality. Robert Foster's script, on the other hand, is flecked with bits of oddness, almost all of them marginal...Still, none of the performances distracts us for long from the overwhelming reality that "Dead-Bang" isn't much good -- that it isn't ever as good as "52 Pick-Up," Frankenheimer's last picture, which at least had a chilling performance by John Glover.

Review [Last] "The Last Boy Scout" opens with a sequence of such sudden and unexpected violence that the audience is stunned into uneasy silence..."The Last Boy Scout" is a superb example of what it is: a glossy, skillful, cynical, smart, utterly corrupt and vilely misogynistic action thriller. How is the critic to respond? To give it a negative review would be dishonest, because it is such a skillful and well-crafted movie. To be positive is to seem to approve its sickness about women. I'll give it three stars. As for my thumb, I'll use it and my forefinger to hold my nose.
