Catch him...if you can.

In this John Woo classic, a woman hires an overly muscly Louisiana drifter named Chance to help her track down her missing hobo father. Little does she know LANCE FUCKING HENRIKSEN has been hiring homeless vets to play in a game of human prey. AND THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW.

It's no secret that Van Dammage! (The Van Damme Marathon) was the absolute best time of my life, and I thought there could be no better way to to say, "thanks for the memories, South Lamar" than getting a 35mm print of the movie that ultimately got the axe from that lineup and show it on our final night. This movie wasn't excised because it wasn't good—quite the opposite, in fact—it may have been discarded because it was just TOO GOOD.

Tough Guy Cinema is pulling out all the stops as we bash down the walls with roundhouses and shatter the ceilings with our fists before the demolition team rolls in to take out what's left of the theater after our screening of HARD TARGET. Will there be explosions? ABSOLUTELY! Will there be confetti? WHY WOULDN'T THERE BE? Will we be handing out edible snakes for everyone to punch in the face and then eat? YOU CAN GUARAN-GOD-DAMN-TEE IT!
