Let me tell you something…
This week we watched The Hard Way from 1989, aka Hard Bull, aka Columbian Connection, aka La Via Della Droga. It was Brittany’s pick, and chosen as another step towards our goal of watching as many Miles O’Keeffe movies as possible.
In The Hard Way, we follow a small special forces group (lead by O’Keeffe’s “Bull”) who are dropped into the Amazonian jungle in pursuit of a ruthless drug lord. With the local government unwilling to extradite the cartel leader, the US sees no other path to justice- they handpick 3 operatives to track the cartel, extricate the leader, and transport him back to the US to face charges for his crimes. Needless to say, things don’t go as planned, and the group finds themselves wildly outnumbered and fighting their way to the base of the cartel’s operations.
Can Bull & co. beat the odds, survive the jungle, and bring their prisoner back to face justice? Or will the cartel have the last laugh?
We discuss the paper thin plot of this film, the absurd amount of shots fired, and the subpar miniatures of exploding helicopters. Enjoy!
