Does anyone else watch the incredible Oliver Harper…?? His retrospective reviews, commentaries and video essays are second to none! I’ve followed his work for a very long time. He’s just hit the base Kickstarter goal for the production of his documentary ‘In Search of the Last Action Heroes’!

“In Search of the Last Action Heroes” will explore the story behind the ‘80s action movie genre, examining how studios were able to turn outrageous concepts into genre-defining tropes, and how the one-man-army sub-genre produced the superstars of the era.

Locked and loaded with nostalgia, ‘80s synth music, exclusive interviews, and visits to iconic filming locations, In Search of the Last Action Heroes will be the most comprehensive retrospective of the action film genre that defined our childhood.

If this sounds right up your alley, make sure to pledge a few quid and help support and fund the production of this awesome project – there’s still time! With exclusive VHS-inspired artwork by the amazing Steelberg – this is not to be missed!
