Dead or Alive
Release Date: 19 February 2002 (USA)
Genre: Action
Director(s): Lowry M. Brooks Jr.
Writer(s): Lowry M. Brooks Jr.
Starring: Lowry M. Brooks Jr., Gregory Dorsey, Linda Floyd

Not only is this a Lowry M. Brooks Jr. production, it’s also a Lowry M. Brooks Jr. film.

Crazy freakin’ action movie with a black cast has discharged marine and bounty hunter Parris Bailey going for one last score in order to buy the home for him and his wife that they’ve always dreamed of. A one million dollar bounty has been placed on the head of the notorious Essein Offenen, and with a scheme to infiltrate his nightclub in place, he and his partner put their plan into action.

Despite being produced somewhere in the range of 1998-2000, director, writer, producer, and actor Lowry M. Brooks Jr. decided to shoot Dead or Alive on film. This does give the movie a weird atmosphere. It’s not because it makes the movie looks professional. Instead, it makes the lamebrain special effects and choreography look even worse.

For whatever reason, Brooks refuses to just have someone shot with a gun. No, no. When Parris is going to shoot a gun, he’s going to twirl in a chair, shoot two guns at the same time, and all that crap. It’s not that action movie conventions aren’t wanted. It’s that on such a pitiful budget, they look just that.

I’m probably overrating it here, but whatever. It’s so bad that it comes off as a hilarious parody of big budget action films, and that’s worth something.
DVD: Barebones.
