NEW YORK (RichTMX.com) — The secret is out. Soon, action movie excitement will be upon us, and for those who have put their names on streaming services subscription lists recently, the one must title will be ‘A Man Of Honor’.

Its authors, Peter Pokorny and Richard Steiner, had pulled together a book that had “blockbuster” written all over it: There’s no getting around this one. The upper limits of what a modern action movie can do will change not just incrementally, but exponentially.
