“I have a message for New York. Central Park is mine.”

On this show, Exploding Helicopter is looking back at the Rambo inspired Eighties curio THE PARK IS MINE (1986).

Tommy Lee Jones plays a troubled Vietnam veteran who launches an armed takeover of Central Park after he’s pushed too far.

Joining Will to review the film is Rich Nelson from the Betamax Video Club. They discuss the film’s First Blood inspirations, questionable policing tactics, and try to figure out just what Tommy Lee Jones is protesting about.

And, of course, they take a look at the film’s exploding helicopter action.
