In the name of holding our blogging cards close to our chest, so that next week’s TNC guest stint is something special, we’re gonna be taking you straight into Bad Movie Friday on this lazy summer morn. Some of our closest friends would argue that Avenging Force doesn’t deserve a place in the schlock pantheon, given Michael Dudikoff’s excellent performance and the sharp Reagan-era spin on The Most Dangerous Game. (Spoiler: It’s man.) But while Avenging Force certainly has its moments, it pales in comparison to the derviative-yet-superior Surviving the Game, which contains the best Gary Busey monologue ever committed to celluloid. Also, the hunter in the leather mask is a wee bit over the top.
Worth $19.95 (about $39 in today’s money)? You be the judge.
