    B-MOVIE BINGO: UNDEFEATABLE

    UNDEFEATABLE (1993)
    Showing Wednesday 11/5/2014 at The Hollywood Theatre

    **Special Wednesday Night Showing!***

    Our favorite street fighting sister is back! In UNDEFEATABLE, Cynthia Rothrock stars as Kristi Jones, a diner waitress who partakes in Mafia-run street fights to pay for her sister’s college education. That sounds like a plot we can relate to! Hunky cop Nick DiMarco (John Miller) catches on, and attempts to break up the illegal fights. Meanwhile, a psychotic underground fighter known only as “Stingray” (Don Niam) allows the brutality of his fights to cross over into his marriage. Distraught, his wife’s psychiatrist advises she leave him, which sends Stingray on a murderous rampage. He spray paints red stripes in his hair and goes after any woman who resembles his wife, Anna–which means no brunette in a floral print dress is safe!

    When Stingray crosses Kristi Jones’ brunette-haired, floral print-wearing, college-attending sister, all bets are off, and it’s up to Jones and Officer DiMarco to put an end to Stingray’s… stinging. Directed by Godfrey Ho.

    B-MOVIE BINGO: CHINA O’BRIEN

    ChinaOBrien_webCHINA O’BRIEN (1990)
    Showing Tuesday 8/5/2014 at The Hollywood Theatre

    The formidable duo of Cynthia Rothrock and Richard Norton rarely fail to please. In CHINA O’BRIEN, Rothrock stars as a big-city cop/karate instructor who quits the force after a gang-related shooting takes the life of one her students. She decides to go back home to the country, where her father is the sheriff, only to find her hometown overrun by corrupt jerks. When her father and his deputy (in awesome back-to-back scenes) get killed by car bombs, all hell breaks loose–and she gets elected sheriff! All right!

    Usually in movies like this, Rothrock fights the boss at the end, which means they are also karate experts, or at least have plenty of Uzis. Not the case here–the bad guys are old men who sit in dark rooms plotting. To fight them, she runs for sheriff and is elected, and then deputizes her old flame Richard Norton, some high school kids, and a mysterious karate-kicking Native American with one hand (we think) named Dakota. Throughout the movie, Dakota saves her ass over and over and disappears on his dirt bike. No one is impressed though–and he’s not really acknowledged by Rothrock or Norton until about three-fourths through the movie. When they finally want to know who he is, it’s with a “Who the hell does he think he is–let’s show him!” kind of attitude. Then they get in a car chase, and the rest is what you’d expect–he becomes a friend and deputy.

    This movie is non-stop entertainment. Even when nothing’s happening, it’s strange enough to keep us interested. Directed by Robert Clouse.

    B-MOVIE BINGO: LADY DRAGON

    Lady DragonLADY DRAGON (1992)
    Showing Tuesday 8/7/2012 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Cynthia Rothrock plays Kathy Galagher, an ass-beating lady who lives in a rat infested hellhole in Indonesia and fights sweaty dudes for  money. However, she is also a retired CIA agent supposedly (which is very easy to miss) who’s husband gets murdered in a flashback.  Now the only thing driving her is to get sweet revenge on Ludvig Hauptman, a beefcake arms dealer and rich-as-hell crime lord (played by Aussie superstar Richard Norton) who also happens to be pure evil and an expert martial artist.  After a failed attempt at killing Ludvig in his own bar called the “Super Star”, Kathy is held hostage, beaten and left for dead, only to be rescued by a mute seemingly homeless Karate master and his tiny interpreter grandson.  The pair nurse Kathy back to health using a massive wooden (Ewok Village?) structure that Kathy must train on daily and eat really filling white stuff and gross tea in order to become a Lady Dragon.  Once Lady Dragon status is achieved (which means nothing except for the mute Grandfather making strong eye contact and doing a rigid cobra-looking hand gesture with his fore arm),  Kathy begins working for Ludvig’s company some how with out being recognized, gets double crossed by former CIA agent friend “Gibson” (Robert Ginty) and has a mano y mano in a warehouse with Ludvig until they are both really beat up.  Directed by David Worth.

    B-MOVIE BINGO: ANGEL OF FURY

    B-Movie Bingo: Angel of FuryANGEL OF FURY (1992)
    Showing Tuesday 2/7/2012 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Hell has no fury… like a security firm courier scorned!   International martial arts star Cynthia Rothrock is Nancy Bolan, whose sole mission is to deliver a top-secret computer for a large security organization.  Housed within a silver briefcase, the computer’s purpose is unknown.  Enter “Bolt” (aka “Zartan”), who is referred to as “The Terrorist Who Strikes Like Lightning“.  He also happens to be a master of disguise and a beefcake.  It turns out that he wants the computer too, and is hot on Nancy’s trail, intercepting her multiple ingenious, and yet failure-prone delivery attempts.  The venerable Peter O’Brian, best known for his career-defining roles as The Stabilizer and Rambu, chews up the scenery as Bolt, in his sixth and final film role before returning to his previous life as an English teacher.

    Rothrock is in top form as a tough, “I’m gonna kill you”, no-nonsense agent.  Things to watch out for include: a post-computer delivery failure shopping spree, Rothrock’s insane, indescribable kick from a dirt bike through a van’s windshield (and then back again), bizarre editing and dialogue, guys who don’t know how to hold guns, and Peter O’Brian’s face.  This movie is PURE BINGO!!!!

    One thing that we like about this movie is that the screenplay was written by Chris Mitchum, son of Robert Mitchum!
