    Vigilante

    ★★★

    One of those 80s vigilante movies where The Man fails to deliver Justice so it’s up to the blue collar protagonist to do so. Lustig does a better job than most with the required tropes. I’m not sure about Fred Williamson or his character here. Williamson did several movies like this as well, but from a different perspective than Forester’s character. There’s just not enough action to move the story along at a good pace but rather bits and spurts. …

    The Hidden

    ★★★★

    A thoroughly 1987 movie, 'The Hidden' stars Kyle MacLachlan and his perfect coif chasing the murderer of his partner and family. The story has elements of Carpenter's 'The Thing', MacLachlan's uneasy portrayal, and the worst part of the synth score from the 'The Terminator'.

    If you're a fan of John Carpenter's sci-fi movies, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', or a stripper shooting a pump shotgun at cops, this movie might be for you.

    Dredd

    ★★★★

    This isn’t the movie Mega City 1 deserves, but it is the movie Mega City 1 needs. A violent, dark dystopia wherein Judges enforce the law with no remorse. In other words, fairly faithful to the comics I’ve read.

    The best comparison in terms of plot, tone, and production design is the first half of The Raid before all of the hand to hand combat began. 

    A good double feature with the 1987 Robocop, this is too dark and violent for many.
