Armed Response (all you need to know)

Posted in Dead VCR, VHS, Workbook

From the bowels of the late 80’s and rescued from the VHS nether regions of Detroit, Michigan comes Armed Response. Jim Roth (David Carradine) is a Vietnam vet just trying to lead a normal life running a bar in China Square while dealing with his two knuckleheaded brothers and ornery pappy (Lee Van Cleef). When brother Clay gets killed in a double-cross exchanging a priceless statue for Japanese businessman Tanaka (Mako) the Roth clan decides to keep it in the family and launch an all out Armed Response.

Channeling his rage-fueled Nam flashbacks Carradine slowly slaps his way through Tanaka’s organization until the final showdown where he breaks out a small cache of weapons that he brought back from the war to take on Tanaka’s army lead by rhythmless psychopath Fortune Cookie (Michael Berryman).

As seen on Everything is Terrible.
