By: John M Jerva I’m an action fan and most importantly an 80’s action fan so with that it must be said that I was old enough when Bruce Willis oozed coolness and bravado in his movies.

By: Anthony Francis Welcome to a special section of Action Rewind called When Action Films Had Balls where we look at the action films of yesteryear that had their own set of rules and made no apologies while carving out their own violent niche in cinematic history. Directed by master filmmaker Walter Hill, 1996’s “Last Man Standing” is certainly his most polarizing work. Hill’s retelling … Continue reading WHEN ACTION FILMS HAD BALLS: LAST MAN STANDING with Bruce Willis is a Great Little Action Film with Style to Spare (1996)
