Bad action movies may be the guiltiest of pleasures, but they're also a ton of fun. Whether you're watching Rutger Hauer fight a rubber-suited monster or Chuck Norris single-handedly thwarting a Communist invasion, there's a strange appeal to their occasionally inept, often silly shenanigans. This book is an in-depth celebration of such films, including the likes of Hercules, Silent Rage, etc.
