NEVER TOO YOUNG TO DIE (1986)


  Being such a huge fan of the show Gene Simmons Family Jewels I decided to rewatch all of his film efforts.
I started with the one that is the most fun.
How can you go wrong with John Stamos, Vanity and Gene Simmons in a film. Gene plays Ragnar a hermaphroditic super villain bent on extorting a city by threatening to poison its water supply. With his/her endless supply of goons that look like they stepped from The Road Warrior, Gene manages to chew the scenery with relish.
This is the best, mindless action movie of its time. The villain is over the top. Vanity looks amazing in clothes and out of them. I didn't even mind John Stamos. With short appearances by Robert Englund and George Lazenby this is the cult flick that everyone should be watching.
And the scene where Stamos has to beat Simmons by biting one of his boobs. EPIC!
And to finish this out with a bang, here are the lyrics of the song 'Stargrove' which is about Stamos because that's his characters last name.

"Are ya feeling like breaking out?

Looking for danger

Feeling adventurous

Then you must

Put your trust

Not in a stranger



Playin' your own game

Do it your own way

Keepin' your own sound

That you found

Goin' down

Playin' like you play



Who knows what you'll find

You might like it, or not

But all that you find, boy

Is all that you got



(Stargrove!) Flying like you've never flown

(Stargrove!) Runnin' through a danger zone

(Stargrove!) Are you gonna stand alone?

Stargrove! Stargrove!



You feel like takin'

The world on your shoulders

You're just a Robin Hood

Makin' good

Where you could

You're one of the soldiers



Faster than lightning

Nothing can strike you

You got the good stuff

Tough enough

Stayin' rough

There's no one like you



Who knows what you'll find

You might like it, or not

But all that you find, boy

Is all that you got



(Stargrove!) Flying like you've never flown

(Stargrove!) Runnin' through a danger zone

(Stargrove!) Are you gonna stand alone?

Stargrove! Stargrove!"

It just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it?
