Movie Reviews

Gibson, McQueen, Quinn, Moore, Peck, Russo, Glover, Hopper a
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 07/20/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"VIDTAPE's ACTION MOVIE LEGENDS is comprised of ten films on five dual-side recorded DVDs. The stars appearing in these PD titles are best known for action films, but not all of this set qualifies for that genre.

NOTABLES:
In TIM, Mel Gibson is a mentally-challenged man who falls in love with a woman who'd hired him to do yardwork. It's a well-done adaptation of the Colleen McCullough novel, one of Mel's first starring roles.

THE GREAT ST. LOUIS BANK ROBBERY is based on a true story and shot on location using people who were actual witnesses to the crime. Steve McQueen's character is recruited by a gang to assist in a bank heist that ultimately goes very wrong.

Gregory Peck portrays a dying man reliving events of his life in THE SNOWS OF KILIMANJARO. Based on the Hemingway short story.

NIGHT TIDE features Dennis Hopper in an early starring role. He's a sailor on shore leave romantically involved with a mysterious woman who portrays a mermaid at a local carnival. Unusually atmospheric, this was filmed on location in Malibu, CA.

MAD DOG MORGAN is Hopper again, in the true story of a 19th Century Australian outlaw. Co-stars Aussie aborigine actor, David Gulpilil.


THE LEGENDS OF THE SILVER SCREEN (also from VIDTAPE) features Red Skelton, W.C. Fields, Laurel & Hardy, Shirley Temple and more!
