Popcorn & Coffee: Vigilante Diaries

Rated R; 108 minutes; $26.99; Amazon

Arriving today on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment is the action-packed flick Vigilante Diaries. Directed by Christian Sesma, the film stars Paul Sloan, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Michael Jai White, Jason Mewes and Michael Madsen.

Vigilante Diaries centers on a Punisher-like character called "The Vigilante," an urban avenger who becomes a worldwide celebrity after a filmmaker (played by Jason Mewes) follows him around and puts the videos on the internet.

Unfortunately, "The Vigilante" is kidnapped and tortured by the Mexican cartels. His sidekick, "The Kid" (played by Kevin L. Walker) puts together a rogue team of Special Forces to help him save "The Vigilante."

However, things don't exactly goes as planned when the American mob gets involved with the situation, which leads "The Vigilante" on a international quest for revenge.

The only featurette is the Vigilante Diaries: Behind The Scenes.

Final Thoughts: I grew up watching '80s action flicks during my childhood, so I"m always interested in watching any new action film. If I'm correct, Vigilante Diaries was a web-series that aired on the now defunct Chill.com and most of the cast returns for the movie.

The actual plot is a bit confusing at times, mostly relying on guns, fighting, explosions and naked women to round out the 108 minutes running time. The cast does a decent job in all their performances, though Jason Mewes stands out as the comedy relief.

Overall, Vigilante Diaries is a cliched action flick that never really takes itself seriously. Despite all the shortcomings, I did find the film to be entertaining.
