Exploitation 2007

Despite GRINDHOUSE being a unfailing flop, it seems that the U.S. cinema is about to be hit with a few major players in what are, essentially, modern day exploitation films. Check out these films and descriptions:

  • THE BRAVE ONE - A woman (Jodie Foster) struggles to recover from a brutal attack by setting out on a mission for revenge.
  • DEATH SENTENCE - After his family members suffer at the hands of gang members, a father (Kevin Bacon) sets on a mission to kill each thug involved with the crime.
  • TRADE - A young Mexican girl is abducted and forced into becoming a sex slave, leading her brother to team up with a police officer (Kevin Kline) who has learned that his own daughter has also been kidnapped.

These films sound like the major studio-backed exploitation films of the '70s like HARDCORE ("Oh my god, that's my daughter!"), HOLLYWOOD VICE SQUAD, et cetera. The only thing missing from these films are some really cheesy marketing including trailers narrated by Nick Tate or Hal Douglas.
