Action Jackson (1988)

Craig R. Baxley directs Carl Weathers, Vanity and Craig T. Nelson in this action comedy where a mild mannered cop takes on an army of villains.

Featuring every henchman from Commando, Lethal Weapon and Die Hard, this slick little shaggy dog story knows it is nonsense so just ramps up the random destruction. At one point a game Weathers trash talks a hitman into driving straight at him and then backflips over the speeding sports car. You get nudity from Sharon Stone and Vanity and running jokes that might sit better in a Police Academy sequel. Not the Lost Ark of forgotten VHS era gems but very watchable.
