We here at Horrornews.net like action films just as much as the next person. Mill Creek Entertainment has been releasing quite a few killer combos this last year worth picking up. This latest one sent over features 4 action films, 2 Jean-Claude Van, and 2 Steven Seagal. I grew up watching both these guys in various roles when “action heroes” were at their high point. One of the films “Attack Force” even brings the 2 together under 1 roof. The “Action Legends (4 Movie Collection)” is a great shelf space saver for the perfect afternoon that requires some high energy film watching.
The set contaibns the following: Attack Force – (2006), Into The Sun – (2005), Universal Soldier: The Return – (1999) and Second in Command – (2006).
