There Can Be Only One – The Podcast 65: “Overkill”

[Explicit language]

TCBOO-Podcast-logoTwo movies titled Overkill enter, only one will leave (with that title) as Herman “OmegaPrime” Davis, Eric McCauley, and Robert Rau watch a movie featuring the younger brother of Chuck Norris — and a vehicle for the 1985 Playgirl Man of the year — to see which should be called Overkill.

The first movie stars Aaron Norris, star of whatever Chuck Norris doesn’t want to do. This “hand me down” features a cop who is forced to take time off, only to get himself hunted by some jealous drug dealers. The most insulting part of the movie is that Aaron’s character is named Jack Hazard, and it isn’t used for the title. Instead, they wussed out and went with Overkill.

The second movie stars Playgirl hunk Steve Rally as a man tired of the Yakuza taking over his city. Good thing a Japanese cop and a useless teenager are there to help him settle the score. Besides dragging a lot in the middle, this movie has nothing to do with the title, only that they overdid the shirtless scenes in the movie. Heck, Steve manages to go undercover as a stripper, because you’ve got to use what you know.

Do either of these films have enough to keep their title, or will they face the wrath of our discerning panel? Listen if you dare.
