Maximum Revenge

Please choose a format above.

A nuclear bomb is about to explode in a maximum security prison! And it’s brand new so there’s only five prisoners. And they’re all guilty of terrible crimes, so nobody’s going to be too upset if they get blown up. Okay, maybe it’s not the best plan. But the bad guys worked really hard to… sneak the bomb into the prison? Really? They killed a bunch of guys to get it in there? Seems like they could’ve just brought it to a stadium! Or the beach? Are we sure these guys are really trying to maximize their revenge?

Mace Richter (named at birth by the Action Movie Guy Consortium) is currently one of the five prisoners. The charges? Being shirtless on an airplane. And he shot a couple of guys while he was shirtless. But in his defense, he was fairly certain they were bad guys when he took his shirt off. It’s up to Mace to save the day with help from a local TV reporter who appears to have recently won a local Emmy for her work on The Hustler Channel. Assisting them is an Occasional Censor, who silences some curse words but leaves others in place without a care in the world. We can't explain it, it's how we got the movie!

Will Mace get Maximum Revenge? Or are the bad guys the ones attempting to get Maximum Revenge? Maybe it’s the sexy reporter? One thing’s for certain: an empty prison is just about the dumbest place you could possibly threaten to set off a bomb. Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Maximum Revenge.
