Black Moon Rising (1986)

Harley Cokliss directs Tommy Lee Jones, Linda Hamilton and Robert Vaughn in this action thriller where a master thief must recover a stolen prototype car from a gang of high-end chop shoppers who operate out of twin skyscrapers.

Why does the experimental super car look so rickety and basic? Why does beautiful Linda Hamilton always look constipated during her sex scenes? Why does this feel so so much like a slightly harder edged episode of Streethawk, Airwolf, Knightrider, The A-Team etcetera etcetera…? The cat burglar caper stuff works best. The baddies operate out of two office towers just so the electric razor on wheels can smash through one glass window and then glide over mid air to the other. Based on a script by THE John Carpenter.
