Desert Heat (1999)

Avildsen’s loose remake of Yojimbo is a tame B movie with an abundance of charm; an ideal slice of sex and violence before bedtime. A dusty tale of revenge set in the scorching desert heat of the mid-west, Van Damme plays the survivor of a mugging which forces him to seek refuge in a secluded town, causing tension among the locals. All too quickly, our traveling cowboy finds himself at the epicentre of a violent feud between two rival families whose reign of terror over the sleepy hollow is about to come to an abrupt, high-kicking end. Bravo.
