Picasso Trigger (1988)

Not a Piece of Art

Master criminal Picasso Trigger (John Aprea) is gunned down outside of a gallery by some goons working for the diabolical Miguel Ortiz (Rodrigo Obregón) who is seeking revenge for the murder of his brother. It leads to reprisals as government agents; Donna (Dona Speir), Taryn (Hope Marie Carlton) and Travis (Steve Bond) set about getting justice against Ortiz and his henchmen.

It is the year 2017 and I am just watching "Picasso Trigger" for the 2nd time in my life, the first time was back in either 88 or 89, I don't remember which. Watching this 80s action movie now did one thing for me; it made me realise how different my taste in entertainment is from what it was as a teenager. Of course I am not alone in knowing their taste in movies has changed over the years but truth be told I am going to struggle to actually write anything about the movie.

Okay "Picasso Trigger simply consists of sexy actresses who when they are wearing clothes often wear some thing tight, something high on the hips, low on the cleavage and well you know what I am on about. But of course these are "action chicks" so on top of being sexy they are dangerous which means some explosions and less than convincing fights. Yes there is a storyline in there about agents going after a crazy drug lord but this is not the sort of movie you watch for the storyline, in fact take out the storyline and there would be 90 minutes of filler.

What this all boils down to is that "Picasso Trigger" is simply a reminder of how far my taste in entertainment has come since I was a teenager. It also made me realise that this sort of movie doesn't really get made now as soft eroticism has been replaced by what you can find on the internet.
