Everything Action Theater: Red Scorpion

If Ivan Drago had been sent out into the field instead of into the ring against Rocky, you would get the ultimate Soviet weapon, Nikolai Radchenko.  Radchenko is initially sent into Africa to assassinate the leader of a group of freedom fighters but after failing and being disgraced by his Soviet superiors, he finds himself living with a group of bushmen and learns some valuable life lessons before joining the freedom fighters in a final push against the Soviets.  M. Emmet Walsh co-stars as a crotchety American reporter.  It’s a fun, dumb 80’s action flick and you can check out the whole movie below, thanks to Crackle.
