Radical Jack (2000)

How bad is it? It's a typical straight to video actioner.
Should you see it? I hear the RiffTrax version is popular, so maybe see it that way.
Billy Ray Cyrus, who showed he couldn't act in his daughter's TV show, stars as a missing Navy SEAL who takes a job in a small redneck bar - in Vermont?! - and the movie ends up being his trying to get even with those who wronged him, in a very action-star-vehicle way. There's the requisite love interest, the corrupt official, the poorly choreographed fight scenes, the car off a cliff and the obligatory appearance of George "Buck" Flower (who should get his own page on this blog). It's all done with a minimum of professionalism, but it holds together.
