Classic Trailer: Action Jackson (1988)

Action Jackson is one of my favourite movies; it’s just a blast with Carl Weathers proving he’s got the goods to be an action star… which for some reason never really happened… but it should have!

I love the synopsis of the film from the YouTube page: 

Stormy Weathers Blasts Through Motown!

Like a blast from a .44 Magnum, Carl Weathers makes “Action Jackson” a hero who delivers the goods in Charisma and excitement. He plays Detroit Police Sgt. Jericho Jackson, pitted against the brutal thugs of ruthless auto tycoon Peter Dellaplane, who is out to murder his way to political power.

Jackson’s also involved with Dellaplane’s beautiful wife Patrice – and his exotic mistress Sydney. Framed up and hunted down by his fellow officers, Jackson sets up a desperate showdown that hurls “Action Jackson” toward a heart-stopping climax.

Damme, I have to go watch this movie again now.
