Troy Duffy is infamous in Hollywood for having made The Boondock Saints, burned all his bridges, then sold enough merchandise to self-produce a sequel. People love those movies, beyond all reason – they’re not terrible, but that’s about all you can say.
So it’s a nice surprise that this Knight Rider fan film he wrote and produced (and appears in, along with Sean Patrick Flanery) is the best-scripted thing he’s ever put out there. What starts as a one-joke skit gets progressively darker until it evolves into a take on the material that I wouldn’t mind seeing a feature version of. And he avoids cheap Hasselhoff humor completely!
