    FREEBIE AND THE BEAN is essential. It has some spectacular action scenes. Apparently, it was one of Kubrick's favourite films. The Warner Archives DVD has a great transfer, but the sound isn't very good.

    It's on youtube, but I've hesitated to watch it because I've heard that the photography is really dark. What are the chances of this getting a Bluray release? Like Clive, I'm tired of waiting...

    I enjoyed this one a lot, but it is in no way an action film.

    Meanwhile, I have been thinking really hard about blind-buying PRIME CUT.

    PRIME CUT is wonderful.

    Next time I have two pennies to rub together, it will be mine.

    Some other films that I like that might fit in this category:

    BUSTING (mentioned earlier in the thread)
    HICKEY AND BOGGS
    ELECTRA GLIDE IN BLUE
    DEALING: OR THE BERKELEY-TO-BOSTON FORTY-BRICK LOST-BAG BLUES
    BONNIE'S KIDS
    THE CANDY SNATCHERS
    KIDNAPPED COED

    Not sure how elastic this "genre" is, but I am also reminded of:

    CISCO PIKE
    THE LONG GOODBYE
    ESCAPE TO PASSION
    NORTHVILLE CEMETERY MASSACRE
    STINGRAY
    THE OBSESSED ONE
    YALAN (1976)

    Saw a great one the other day, John Flynn's THE OUTFIT. Robert Duvall starts robbing the mafia as payment for the death of his brother, with help from Joe Don Baker. Lots of action and tough guy dialogue.

    I saw The Outfit on Turner Classic Movies a couple months back. It was pretty good & a nice surprise as I just ran across it along with having never heard of it before.

    Is there a crime film called Bare Knuckles that has something to do with a serial killer? I remember it on video & catching it on late night tv. The main character may have been an unlicensed detective or a bare knuckle fighter...?

    This is it: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075727/combined

    Yeah! BARE KNUCKLES is very entertaining. Soundtrack is boss as well. This was released as a d/f dollar dvd & went out of print quick. Never grabbed it, but I still have the dvdr from my VHS.
