# 5. Capital Punishment (1991)
If “Spoiler” was in desperate need of more martial arts madness, writer/director David Huey’s like-minded “innocent man clearing his soiled name” outing could stand a considerable boost in the ol’ story department. I’m all for an abundance of outrageous hand-to-hand confrontations, mind you, but it’s kind of nice having something to fall back on when the action is noticeably weak. The infrequency of such things like solid choreography and sound effects can be distracting, though, chances are, your senses will be too dazzled by the delirious amount of carnage crammed into the film’s slender 87 minutes. Regardless, the movie is a hoot, and should play well with those who like their action peppered with cream corn.
