“Clean-up on Aisle Four”: Stone Cold (1991)

I miss movies like this and I still think it’s a damn shame that Brian Bosworth didn’t become a big action star as he certainly had the goods.

This movie alone cemented him under legendary status for me and the supermarket beatdown is always a great action movie staple (see Cobra, Falcon Rising, etc…).

Stone Cold’s opening scene is one of the action greats as our hero is introduced by casually walking into a supermarket in a huge leather trench-coat while the store is being robbed.

Needless to say the robber’s day is about to go downhill.

 

I have to say though that I am still shocked at the blatant hostility towards those harmless boxes of Ritz crackers when the robbers first open fire. Seems a little harsh. #SavetheRitz

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.
