Laserdisc Cover of the Day: Felony 1994
Anyway, I saw this about a year or so ago randomly and kinda loved it for all the wrong reasons. It's a bad film, make no mistake about that. But it's bad in the best way David A. Prior (Deadly Prey, Killer Workout, Mankillers) can do, which is why I love so many of his films as much as I do. Their level of "inept bad" is the stuff of legends and myths, and Felony does not disappoint. It's ridiculous and nearly every action taken by every single character will leave you dumbfounded, but that's part of it's charm too. Prior didn't live in the real world when he wrote his screenplays, and any one of his films is a testament to that.
I personally feel that this is an important film for any filmbuff, whether you like low-budget action, David A. Prior films, entertainingly bad films, or most importantly, you're a big fan of Jeffrey Combs. He alone is worth the visit and seeing him running from a bunch of bad guys, crashing through windows and being a badass is worth the price of admission alone. So when I found this on eBay during one of my random browsing sessions recently, it was an impulse buy and I'm happy to add this to my collection.
