checks whether this is the BBS or my usual MST3K chat group

Is this some sort of real life cross-over episode?

“Mark Collins, age 45, gave himself up to the authorities after the incident. he is currently serving a life sentence”.

Forget Jason Statham characters – this guy is the most British action hero ever.

Back in the 80s I storyboarded a one-man-vs.-the-Mob action feature for an indy producer. In those more innocent days an “R” rating could cost you bookings, so he determined to soften the rating by keeping all the action but lowering the body count. My favorite scene was when the hero forces two hitmen’s car off a cliff. When the dust settles at the bottom of the cliff, the mobsters crawl from the wreckage and one says, “Wow, I’m glad we were wearing seatbelts!”

FTFY! The lack of capitalization is an essential component to the wondrousness of the film’s ending.
