At last, it’s our final installment of the Lesser Siblings Month series, and we finish with a bang! Or would that be with a slobbery, weepy moment and a hug? Joining us for this episode is friend of the show, Dennis Anderson, who brings a depth of TV and film trivia to bear on this movie. Our last film for the series features Eric Roberts, brother of Julia! As a bonus, we also get Chris Penn, brother of Sean!
This one seems promising at first, when you think about the great martial arts tournament movies of the 80s; Bloodsport probably being the genre definer for this period. This one has plenty of action, as it meanders it’s way to the tournament, with endless scenes of people talking, doing situps, and crying! Yes, this film will truly grip you in that stunning moment where the champions learn to do things like jump rope, and run around a track!
