The Hidden (1987)

The 80s was a long exercise in bad taste, but boy did some awesome movies come out of it.

The Hidden is the perfect example.

It has everything a good movie needs: Strippers, revolvers, fast cars, shotguns, aliens, flame throwers, drugs, Kyle MacLachlan, bazookas, great one-liners, a messed up ending and a handicapped man being run over to a hard rock soundtrack. There's lot's of explosions and a pretty cool story to boot. A police station shoot-out is so bad ass, it rivals the one in The Terminator. And everything is made with a disdain for the political correctness that's messed up all action films to come after.

Don't bother with the incredibly boring sequel though.
