Craig R. Baxley directs Carl Weathers in the truthfully titled Action Jackson, which comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that fails to preserve the original theatrical aspect ratio. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence. This is a sub-par release from Warner Brothers that is recommended exclusively to genre enthusiasts looking for an inexpensive new title.

Carl Weathers is not the most popular actor but he sure is awesome. Weathers plays Jericho Jackson, a brutal cop, who gets involved with a drug case. He breaks some bones without stick and stones. This movie is definately recommended if you like crime movies.
