#647 Dead Bang (1989)

Don Johnson, committed to his role in the iconic 80s series Miami Vice reportedly declined a lead role in movies like Die Hard and The Untouchables that became huge box office magnets, and his post TV roles are often viewed as failures.

Dead Bang and the later Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man (1991) go on to prove he would’ve made quite a decent movie star as well.

While Dead Bang is no Die Hard, it’s still one of the better action thriller of the late 80s. Johnson plays a detective Jerry Beck who sides up with mysterious FBI agent to go after a christian neo-nazi supremacist cult protected by the local public servants. Besides the tight top-notch action there’s are a few hilarious scenes often mentioned by the fans of the movie that are just as fun as advertised.
