Classic Trailer: Excessive Force (1993)

I always thought it was a shame that Thomas Ian Griffith didn’t become a huge action star; he had the moves and the charisma and this movie is an underrated gem. The supporting cast also includes Lance Henriksen, James Earl Jones, Tony Todd and Burt Young.

It has some great action and is definitely worth checking out.

Plot: Chicago policeman Terry McCain (Thomas Ian Griffith) is determined to put away mobster Sal DiMarco (Burt Young), who always gets acquitted on technicalities. While monitoring a drug sale, a shootout ensues, and one of Terry’s fellow officers gets away with $3 million of Sal’s money.

Suspecting Terry took the cash, the mobster sends his men to kill Terry’s brother, Dylan (Tom Hodges), and partner, Frankie Hawkins (Tony Todd). Furious, Terry sets out to take his revenge by any means necessary.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
