[#DrawWithMango × #DailyMovieSketch]Cliffhanger (1993)Directed by Renny HarlinContinuing the series of 1990s movie drawings for @mangopenciler's #90snostalgia art challenge, here's a movie I am very fond of, from 1993. Sylvester Stallone had two hits this year, this movie and "Demolition Man". This was the year I remember, we got STAR TV (satellite television) at home and the latter film, I knew about through TV, this one was thanks to a videotape I bought and rewatched many times.Finnish director Renny Harlin shot to fame for making one of the well received "A Nightmare on Elm Street" sequels (Part 4), and then made "Die Hard 2" in 1990. I believe that one and this action thriller are his best work. I must watch "Mindhunters" from 2004 again, I remember that as being a good movie too. Some of his films are criticized for being too indulgent and overblown, but this Stallone movie is exciting and fun.Stallone stars as mountain rescue expert Gabe Walker, who retires from the job after an accident involving the death of his best friend Hal's girlfriend. Gabe and Hal respond to a distress call from stranded hikers only to find that the call was fake, the hikers are actually criminals led by the deliciously villainous Qualen (John Lithgow) who have lost three cases containing a million dollars in the mountains, and they make Gabe and Hal recover them. Can the heroes stay one step ahead and escape?The movie has spectacular action scenes and is very entertaining.Next is 1994 — there were many great movies that year, I've already drawn a sketch from "The Professional", watch out for one more. The drawing is scanned already and will be posted in a few hours. Hint: Comedy movie with gangster undertones, based on a dark (almost horror-themed) comic, directed by another person who made a "A Nightmare on Elm Street" movie, starring a famous comedic actor who also had multiple hits that very year.Can you guess?I drew Stallone as Gabe from the movie, the drawing was done with the @ns1pen and a bit of Gelly Roll on A6 Brustro sketchbook and scanned.#cliffhanger #sylvesterstallone #slystallone #ns1pen #ballpointpen #ballpoint #ink #inksketch#424 / 13-Mar-19
