Classic Trailer: Malone (1987)

Burt Reynolds is cool, calm and collected in this underrated actioner which turns 30 on May 1st this year. It tells the story of an Ex-CIA hit-man running from his past (Malone) who finds just how difficult it is to retire when he runs across a small town controlled by mercenaries and a family that’s resisting their control.

Cliff Robertson is a really effective villain and the movie still holds up today. Most importantly it has Reynolds walk away from an explosion in slow motion.

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.

    I remember seeing the barber shop shootout scene on TV. Felt like a modern western.

  • Jason Robertson

    This brings back memories, my old man used to really like Burt Reynolds especially through his tough guy/more serious phase (Sharkeys machine, Heat & Stick), I remember watching this on video with him. Burt along with Clint and Charlie were my Dad’s favourite stars of the time. I’m always grateful to him for having a great influence on me on the kind of films I love to watch. Must watch this film again, I thought it was great when I first watched it.
