Move over, Rambo, there’s a new one-man-army in town… and he knows how to play the sax. That makes him a real deadly enemy!
Gary Busey, one of my favorite B-squad actors, is Frank “Bulletproof” McBain, an ex-CIA agent who can’t be harmed by bullets and likes to give his foes weird names like “Butthorn” (I guess that’s a softer version of the word a##-hole!). He uses big guns, plays the saxaphone, and really whups the crap out of his enemies. Oh, and he gets the chicks, too. I know, this film sounds really derivative and ridiculous at first, but if you have the right patience, you could wind up enjoying this film. Busey is a great actor because he’s the kind that can portray any character. For example, in “Lethal Weapon”, he’s a sleazy villain, and in “Bulletproof”, he’s an all-out, gung ho hero. His ability to play any man is what really impresses me the most. If you want to see Busey as a dirtbag or a psycho, watch “Lethal Weapon” or “Under Siege”, or if you like to see him as a womanizing or wisecracking good guy, either “Bulletproof”, or “Point Break” are your choices.
