Just in case "The Expendables" weren't expendable enough for you, here is Ian Watson's guide to films which showcase some of the least impressive purveyors of heroic screen violence from the last few decades. There are Hollywood productions as well as some of the tastiest dishes from the East and from our friends in Italy, and even Ray Dennis Steckler's cinema-released home movie "Ratfink a Boo Boo" (1966).
The world has been flooded with action movies from the 1960s onwards. Which ones are actually worth watching? If you are a fan of the deranged, the tasteless and the hilariously incompetent, Ian Watson has done you an inestimable service by separating the truly entertaining chaff from the merely watchable wheat.
