D.C. Cab
(1983)
Reviewed by James Merritt
Rating: 9.5 Beans

his has to be Joel Schumacher's best film to date. Batman and Robin couldn't hold a candle to it. It is the tale of the working man's plight.In this case it is the plight of one Mr T, reprising his roles in 'The Toughest Man in the World','Rocky 3' and 'The A Team'. The casting of the barbarian brothers allows for some great humour and action but that's about it.

A very heart wrenching film which hits close to home(I found myself grabbing at my heart and heading towards the bathroom). Joel's directing style hasn't changed over the years, only his budget has. I'm sure if he had the money to spend on neon lights and glow-in-the-dark face paint, he would. His choice in class actors hasn't changed either. How he's gone on to make films after this little ditty is one of the greatest mysteries to plague mankind. In my opinion Joel Schumacher should just be erased from history.

Lacking the trademark Mr T wit: "I pity the fool" D.C. Cab falls flat. Not even the 'class' of the Barbarian Brothers can save this movie. You can't help but wonder what would've happened if this movie had never been made, but alas unfortunately not all dreams come true. Even a director of Joel Schumacher's calibre (hmmmmm??) knows that you don't have your best line after the credits have finished!! "I am the angel of death. Take me to hell" With any hope this is where D.C. Cab will end up.
