Man, it’s hot outside. I mean seriously freaking hot. I don’t know about you, my friend, but I’m staying indoors today and tomorrow. Shut-in mode has been officially engaged. After riding inside the toaster oven that is my 2000 Daewoo Lanos this week, I’ve decided that I’m spending the weekend within the air conditioned coziness of my quirky suburban pad. However, even with the AC cranked and the cold drinks flowing, the 100+ degree heat has a way of getting into everything and staying there. It’s pretty brutal, especially for a lightweight like me.
If you’re attempting to stay cool, as well, why not stick your sweaty face right into the cool waters of Ice Cube and Ice-T’s 1992 action/thriller “Trespass”. Not only do you get these two guys kicking ass and chewing scenery like seasoned professionals, potential viewers are also treated to the cinematic forces known as Bill Paxton and William Sadler. Did I mention that the film was directed by Walter Hill? I honestly don’t know what you’re waiting for.
Here’s what the film is all about, courtesy of IMDb:
Two Arkansas firemen, Vince and Don, get hold of a map that leads to a cache of stolen gold in an abandoned factory in East St. Louis. What they don’t know is that the factory is in the turf of a local gang, who come by to execute one of their enemies. Vince sees the shooting, the gang spots Vince, and extended mayhem ensues. As Vince and Don try to escape, gang leader King James argues with his subordinate Savon about how to get rid of the trespassers.
This film may not make the heat bearable, but you’ll definitely feel a hell of a lot cooler for having watched it. Carve 100 minutes out of your life and kick back. It’s a fun flick.
