Action Jackson

This is more or less Fatal Beauty in drag in a Detroit settingwith Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed in the Rocky movies) taking the place of Whoopi Goldberg. The wisecracks are even less funny, the mayhem more mindless, the police brutality more glibly fascistic, and the script (by Robert Reneau) about as idiotic as any that comes to mind. There are also lots of explosives. With Craig T. Nelson as the ridiculous villain and Vanity as the junkie heroine who sings a couple of numbers; directed by Craig R. Baxley. (JR)
