• B-MOVIE BINGO: FIRST ACTION HERO

    FIRST ACTION HERO (1994)
    Showing Tuesday 8/1/2017 at The Hollywood Theatre

    Shit hits the fan when lone wolf veteran cop Mark Fierro (Fabio Testi) is transferred from Tampa back to his old precinct in Miami in order to prevent the local mafia gangs from engaging a full blown gang war. Fierro and his flamboyant golden-locked partner Hoagy O’Toole (Ron Nummi) stop at nothing to get the job done. Whether it’s killing everything in their path or spending hours in Fierro’s bare white office containing nothing but a desk and a photo of Bill Clinton on the wall, these two mean business! To complicate things, Fierro’s teenage daughter from his failed marriage is dumped in his lap unexpectedly and he is suddenly forced to be a father, while simultaneously trying to juggle his relationship with his D.A. girlfriend Lori (played by Marina Giulia Cavalli, who does nothing but protect the people he is after) and deal with his Mafioso Uncle Ben (Gabriele Ferzetti).

    Packed to the brim with action and boring scenes all set to the same music that sounds like it could have been a contestant for the Wheel of Fortune theme, this film has it all: acting, cinematography and at least two songs. Although this film obviously has nothing in common with Last Action Hero from 1993, you may notice that Mark Fierro is using the same handgun that Jack Slater (Arnold Schwarzenegger) used. So this is like that movie, but FIRST instead!

    This movie has the best theme song.
