Watch: 'Key & Peele' Skewer the '80s in This Hilarious Action-Film Parody

The ‘80s were a great time for action movies – a time when men like Stallone, Schwarzenegger,and Mel Gibson kicked ass while sporting hilarious mullets, lots of denim, and copious catchphrases. Comedy Central’s Key & Peele take us back to this magical era in this hysterical new trailer for Strike Force Eagle 3: The Reckoning. To paraphrase the Wu-Tang Clan, you best protect your neck while watching this one.

Keegan Michael Key stars as Cal Flavell, the actor headlining this clip that looks like it could have come straight out of Cannon Films in 1986. Flavell has to infiltrate the home of a Colombian drug lord (Jordan Peele) to save the damsel in distress. He has a gift for dispatching bad guys in a unique way.

The clip really nails all the things that made ‘80s action films so great at the time – and makes them feel so hilariously dated today. The full denim ensemble, the cheesy musical score, the awful dialogue, and the epic final showdown all remind me of classic films from the era. Hell, I’d actually watch this whole movie if these guys made it – it’s better than some of the serious films from the Reagan years.

Check out Strike Force Eagle 3: The Reckoning below and see if you agree.
