#735 Never Too Young to Die (1986)

Vanity, who sadly passed away on 2016, went totally under my radar before seeing her in Action Jackson and the insanely awesome The Last Dragon, released the previous year. Never Too Young to Die, starring the ridiculously gorgeous Vanity along with Gene Simmons portraying Velvet Von Ragnar, a hermaphrodite night club singer gang leader plotting to poison the entire Los Angeles water supply at first seems to have the same awesomeness written all over it.

Written to be the first part of a movie series starring Stargrove, a son of a super agent killed in action the movie suffers from pilot episode like pacing; although there is a lot of things going on, the movie still seems to take it sweet time to really get into action.

After I let go of the idea of the movie being quite the epic win like The Last Dragon, I started to enjoy the movie for the enormous camp value it has: Gene Simmons in a corset and a drag makeup boasting possibly the worst acting seen on the silver screen and delivering one ridiculously stupid line after another is stuff that’s best consumed with some like-minded friends who enjoy a good laugh or two.
