Badge of the Assassin

United States - 1985
Director - Mel Damski
Vidmark Entertainment, 1989, VHS
Run Time - 1 hour, 36 minutes
Starring - Yaphet Kotto and James Woods

Come on, this is one of Kotto's best performances in the 80's and despite his face being above Woods', he isn't even listed on the cover. Incredible box fail. This was the second time that Kotto and Woods worked together on a film, the first was 1976's Raid on Entebbe which I cover on Tuesday for Kotto Week. As I said just above, Kotto is terrific in this, as is Woods, both turn in fantastic performances, the subject matter of the movie bears a bit more analysis.

I agree. Underrated movie.
