DRUG RUNNERS (1988)
Terrible acting, over-the-top violence(about a million very fake-looking rounds are shot off in this thing!), an instantly forgettable plot and characters you couldn't care less about make up this movie yet somehow I still found it entertaining. The very definition of a so-bad-it's-good experience. I assume this is similar to those new very hip and trendy movies that play at every theater that shows "cult" movies nowadays. You know, stuff like MIAMI CONNECTION and DANGEROUS MEN. I haven't actually bothered to see these two but I assume it's all a very similar "laugh at how dumb the 80s were"-kinda vibe. In addition to the 80s dumbness you get an old and very hairy Aldo Ray. Also what I think might add positive points for me is that this was a U.S./Mexican co-production so it has a little bit of that south of the border insanity going on. Give it a watch if you can deal with a very clunky 80s action flick that plays like an extra-retarded episode of MIAMI VICE.
