Big Month of Mark – Drive


Hold onto your boots, because Drive is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  Badly mishandled in its initial release, Drive is an American action movie with both a great sense of humor and a Hong Kong martial arts flair.  Condemned to obscurity by its producers, this film should have made Mark Dacascos and Steve Wang household names.

This movie contains:

FIST BOOTS.

Disgruntled cowboy hitmen with rocket launchers.

Fruity musical numbers.

COMING SOON!

More Mark Dacascos goodness in the month of November!

    For anyone interested, it’s super-cheap on amazon.co.uk:

    Or you could shell out a few more euros for the German disc which comes with a DTS track:

    Oh how it warms my bones to hear about Marky D again.
    Are you guys gonna review “DNA” or “Only the Strong”?

    I used to have every Dacascos movie I could get my hands on, but have shamefully sold them.

    Great episode! I’m always looking for new kung fu movies, and finding older ones that slipped me by is always a pleasant surprise. I’m going to have to track down a copy of this one.

    Lately the only thing satisfying my appetite has been Donnie Yen and Wu Jing movies, but most movies now favor the “realism” opposed to unnecessarily-flowery-but-that’s-why-it’s-cool fight scene choreography.

    I actually was of the opinion American movies NEVER have the master shot in their fight scenes, just going for the close-ups all the time. I’m always screaming at them “Wide shot! Please, wide shot!” I remember in “War” (puke) one of the last fight scenes was all close-ups, but I knew they actually had a wide shot because they used it in the trailer *shakes head*

    Amazon has a “Drive Special Collectors Edition” in its listings…is that not what I want?
