Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
IMDb Synopsis: A mercenary is hired to rescue his ex-girlfriend, a singer who has been kidnapped by a motorcycle gang.

#Soft Flex
Film:
Demolition Man
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Description: A film that still to this day has not gotten its just due, in my opinion. Demolition Man is the story of an imprisoned officer being brought out of cryo-stasis to take down a rogue criminal who was also let loose in a dystopian future where violence has been rendered "obsolete". In terms of strong points, while the action is solid, it takes a back seat to its comedic/satirical wit and the cast is excellent!

Marill's Mind: The best thing about Love Death + Robots is every episode is different (kind of like Black Mirror if you've seen it), and each episode is unique in it's own way. I like Sci-Fi/Dystopian stuff, and this show gives you a lot of those vibes.
