About the Movie
In 1979, Iranian filmmaker John Rad moved to the U.S. to shoot his dream project: a rampaging gutter epic of crime, revenge, cop sex and raw power. A mere 26 years later, he completed an action masterpiece that the world is still barely ready for today: DANGEROUS MEN. After Mina witnesses her fiancé's brutal murder by beach thugs, she sets out on a venomous spree to eradicate all human trash from Los Angeles. Armed with a knife, a gun, and undying rage, she murders her way through the masculine half of the city's populace. A renegade cop, hot on her heels, soon crosses paths with the subhuman criminal overlord known as Black Pepper. A pulse-pounding, heart-stopping, brain-devouring onslaught of '80s thunder, '90s lightning, and pure filmmaking daredevilry from another time and/or dimension.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Conceivably, it could serve as a primer for students on how not to make a movie, and perhaps as a deconstruction of filmic conventions for the more theoretical minded.
Rotten: "Dangerous Men," the picture's production notes inform, took 26 years to reach the big screen. After having seen it, I wonder: What was the rush?
Fresh: Ridiculous, artless, and wildly entertaining, Dangerous Men is more than the sum of its fascinatingly misguided parts, although it will take a special sort of moviegoer to truly appreciate (or endure, depending on your perspective) its charms.
Fresh: To sit through it feels like honoring the dreamers of the world who at least get shit done. Is it terrible? Of course. Is there belly-dancing? Duh.
Just a terrible movie. It makes no sense, at the same time I love it. Not quite Samurai Cop but a worthy try.
