Turns out a stuntman-turned-filmmaker unleashed the most explosive, death-defying, bullet-riddled, grenade-launching, flame-broiled, anti-human mega-attack in independent film history -- shot in Texas back in 1989 -- and no one knew… UNTIL NOW.
When you think of the broad panorama of VHS-era action, your mind detonates with fast cars, helicopter chases, profanity, nudity, stolen diamonds, FBI agents, men on fire, and Casio soundtracks. But what if we told you there’s one single movie that impossibly squeezes all of the above into 89 minutes, not to mention sunroof gunfights, a car jumping over a school bus packed with screaming children, honkytonk brawlin’, bathroom kissin’-- plus exploding cars, houses, AND recreational vehicles? In the late ‘80s, against all known laws of reality, daredevil-turned-filmmaker John Stewart took to the cities, highways, and saloons of Texas and accomplished that very feat in Action U.S.A.
"An excellent example of the type of escapist fun that packed drive-in theaters as recently as a decade ago but is now without a natural home." - Variety
“Pounds and pounds of Grade A Texas-style action… damn near perfect.” - Bleeding Skull
