Trailer: The Park is Mine

Alright, so this isn't a new movie, but it's new to me. In 1984 or 1985, someone had the idea to essentially remake First Blood, but starring Tommy Lee Jones instead of Sylvester Stallone and set in New York City's Central Park instead of Hope, Washington. The synopsis is pretty straight forward: "A Vietnam vet takes forceful control of Central Park to remember those who served and died in the Vietnam War."

I'm guessing the reason why this one was able to fly under my radar for so many years is that The Park is Mine is a direct to TV movie. I was surprised that was the case given that it stars Tommy Lee Jones as the badass Vietnam vet "Mitch." I've always thought of Jones as a real grade-A movie star, but looking back at this filmography I see that he was a rather frequent actor in TV movies for the first half of his career. Regardless, the trailer looks like a fun 1980's action romp, and Tommy Lee Jones' pristine-looking Yankees hat is a nice touch. Looking forward to scrounging up the full version because, yes, dumb can be fun.
