Welcome to Episode 3 of Eric Roberts is the Man! This time around we’re taking a look at the taekwondo action classic BEST OF THE BEST starring James Earl Jones’ voice, the late (pudgy) Chris Penn, Sally Kirkland for some reason and Eric Roberts’ hair. Lots of people get kicked while great/terrible synthy rock music plays. It’s hard to beat. We follow that up with Christ-tastic faith film REVELATION ROAD: THE BEGINNING OF THE END which is sort of THE BOURNE IDENTITY meets A THIEF IN THE NIGHT except not nearly as interesting as that would imply. Our man ER is only in this one for a scene, so we instead chat about the Christian film industry, Ray Wise and whatever else we can think of.
