My thoughts… Awesome! Assassin Priest is a ridiculously over-the-top homage to action exploitation cinema and it is wonderfully cool! I love the outrageous gun battle in the church which is then followed by an absurd bicycle chase! In addition, I love the delightfully retro theme music by Jim Covell, who also happens to be Cameron and Chris‘s father. Oh, and Sydni Corrin, who plays Nicole Knightengale, is sooooo adorable!
