Anyone else here just dying to see the score to this 80's action masterpiece get a release? I think it would be a perfect title for La-La Land Records or Intrada. There are enough Kamen, Hancock and 80's action cheese fans to sell 1000-2000 copies, I'm sure of it!

Please, please, please, will someone make this happen?

I would be disappointed if you didn't write the liner notes.

Personally, I think the screenwriter should get a free copy of the cd when it comes out!

Any Kamen is an instant buy for me. I'd be excited to get this one.

What does it sound like, in comparison to other Kamen scores?
Does it have any memorable themes, or is it impressive scoring that works well in the film, but may not stand-alone very well away from the film?

So, you're the guy who wrote the script to Action Jackson? Allow me a moment to freak the F out upon realising this...

Ok, I'm all freaked out now. Do you realise that you're a genius? An absolute gem of a writer? I'm not even kidding here, it's not a case of "It's so bad it's good" for me, I know it's a movie that doesn't take itself seriously. IMO Action Jackson is THE most ultimate 80's action movie of them all. If I were to teach someone about action movies from the 80's, I'd use Action Jackson as the perfect example. It is awesome in every single way it possibly could be, most of it thanks to your script. The one-liners are sublime, from "So? He had a spare!" to "I have to catch a cab!" and "How do you like your ribs?" Where did you get these things?!

I'm such a big fan of your work, if I ever met you I'd ask you to sign my chest and then have your signature tattooed, then remove the flesh from my body for posterity. Of course, I could just have you sign a piece of paper, but that would just be awkward.

This movie has given me so much enjoyment over the years, it's one of my absolute favorite movies. Thank you so much for creating this work of action art. THANK YOU! I recently got the Blu-ray, which looks GREAT! Have you seen it in that format yet?

Did you spend any time on the set of the movie? Any good stories to share?

[looks for William Shatner SNL clip, remembers that Action Jackson is actually pretty awesome, closes YouTube window]
