Reaper Bones review #145: Horace "Action" Jackson

A long time ago there was a movie featuring Carl Weathers -- who shot to fame when he famously faced off against Rocky Balboa as Apollo Creed -- titled "Action Jackson." And it was awesome, not the least of which because it included Vanity of Prince fame and Jackson chasing a bad guy fleeing in a car by running him down...ON FOOT. This miniature pays homage to his earlier films, like "Friday Foster."

This miniature nails the 70s-style look of an action hero of the genre: Afro, open white shirt down to the navel, bell-bottom jeans, and huge gold medallion.

His name may be Horace, but we know who he really is:

Who's the black private dick / That's a sex machine to all the chicks? / HORACE! / Ya d*mn right!

Okay, maybe we'll just call him Action.
