The Killing Zone (1991)

How bad is it? Low budget action film of little interest.
Should you see it? If it's easily available. It's watchable.

Former American Gladiator Deron "Malibu" McBee stars as a convict on a chain gang released to capture a Mexican drug lord. Melissa Moore (of "Samurai Cop") plays his girlfriend. The star doesn't really show up until the final 30 minutes, as the film dwells on the bad guy, then it slows and gets padded. The plot hangs together well, though the low budget shows - cars getting wrecked were obviously chosen for their price. There's a plastic snake. A guy who plunges hundreds of feet off a cliff returns later with a slight limp. The acting is hammy and the dialogue poor, but this is an action film of the extreme mullet meathead type, so that's to be expected.
