Man. I haven't seen that since it came out on VHS, Piper & Blanks' performances are hilariously bad IIRC! :D

Billy Blanks, the only actor who could make Cynthia Rothrock look like Olivier! IIRC Showdown came out around the same time as Back in Action and that features an evern worse performance from Blanks. There's a scene at the start where he accidentally kills some punk who attacks him and realising this he screams out "noooooo" as the camera cuts to his partner taking a shower back at the station (from an angle that makes him look like a pregnant woman!). Classic! :D

Most of these movies are tripe, but if you like violent action BACK IN ACTION doesn't disappoint. You won't believe that it was actually BANNED for a short time.

I might give this a go but one Amazon listing says the case is "soiled" (!)

The 90's aesthetic did it for me.
