Savage Beach (1989) (Blu-ray Review)
Directed By: Andy Sidaris
Starring: Dona Speir, Hope Marie Carlton, John Aprea
Rated: R/Region A/1:85/1080p/Number of Discs 1
Available from Mill Creek Entertainment

Two female government agents transporting a vaccine are forced to land their plane on a remote island that houses more than palm trees and sandy beaches. A sunken WWII Japanese ship containing a fortune in gold is located nearby and the island is now the base for a nefarious group searching for it.

At this point, you should probably already know what you are getting when you get an Andy Sidaris film. It will have some sorta “agent” type plot, it will have some blood, and it will have all the boobs you want and then some. That remains true with Savage Beach but I’m still a little more fond of this one due to the fact it has lots more Nija and sword action. So it gives us a little more blood in spots to go along with the breasts and that’s always a good combination in my book. I won’t say that the plot here isn’t super silly, because it is, but I’ve come to know by now that it comes with the territory when dealing with anything ever touched by Andy Sidaris. This one also seems to have a bit of a better pace and that is one thing that helps it as well, it never seems boring.

While you won’t find this one-topping Hard Ticket to Hawaii any time soon, or maybe not even Malibu Express, it at least does enough to get ranked third on my list of favorite Andy Sidaris’ films at this point. The karate action and Japanese twist on things are what sold it for me overall. The movie looks pretty solid in HD and comes with an intro from the great (in his own way) director. The movie has a better plot than you’ll find in most and might be the most honest to goodness and worthy follow-up you’ll find in regards to Hard Ticket to Hawaii and in these types of movies that spawned this whole film series.
