“For a CHRISTMAS-themed action-packed thrill ride, look no further than RIOT.” Comeuppance Reviews.com
“Probably PM Entertainment's best work!” - Flickering Myth.com
“Ho-ho-ho, motherfucka” - actual line of dialogue from RIOT.
Gary Daniels was hoping for a peaceful Christmas Eve knocking a few brewskies back at the bar with his best friend & former boxing champion Sugar Ray Leonard, but they forgot they were in an action movie and so after clearing the bar of an entire baseball team's worth of racists (literally), Gary is tasked with a one-man mission to infiltrate a gang stricken riot-zone and rescue the British Ambassador's daughter, who also happens to be Gary's former flame. Good thing Gary is an ex-military martial arts badass and great thing that Joseph Merhi of PM Entertainment is in the director's chair, ensuring a steady supply of stupefying spectacle and outrageous action, including a vehicular full-body burn stunt so ridiculous you'll exclaim: “God bless ye Merhi gentleman!”
Join us, won't you for this month's VHS presentation of RIOT, as we'll be complimenting this slice of seasonal 90's DTV shenanigans with a barrage of delirious Christmas adverts, holiday mash-ups, live LASER BLAST-approved carolling and perhaps a special appearance of a certain red-clad mofo that goes ho-ho-ho.
