This short, minute film is light on blood and gore just a few stabbings in the beginning , has no gunfights and nothing explodes.
One gets the feeling that Santiago was on cruise control here and was taking a break from his usual shoot-em-up actioners, but the sad fact was that Santiago would go on to direct a few of these modern-day martial arts flicks and would not go back to his mindless gunplay flicks.
Too bad, because he was quite good at 'em. This is a lesser, latter-day entry from Santiago that can be avoided unless you like lots of nudity Sassoon is well-oiled in all her full-frontal shots and the sight of lips that can best be described as "distracting".
How can you possibly go wrong? With Greydon Clark directing, producing and co-scripting with Alvin L.
Fast , it's quite easy, actually. When Las Vegas lounge singer Michelle Wilson Susan Kiger learrn from her manager, Manny Hale , that her younger brother Bobby was beaten-up and hospitalized trying to steal drugs from kingpin Mike Farrell Palance , she and friend April Jacqulin Cole form a squad of all-female vigilantes to destroy Farrell and his drug business.
Each woman is an expert in their field. Terry Grant Sylvia Anderson is a black movie stuntwoman and expert driver. Kako Umaro Lieu Chinh is a black belt martial artist.
Maria Noela Velasco is a beautiful model, whose looks will be used as a distraction to the bad guys. Elaine Brenner Robin Greer is a policewoman, who is secretly working with her boss, Captain Miller Brand , to infiltrate the women's group and use the information to bust Farrell before the women get him.
After stealing a van from a horny used car dealer Buttram and tricking it out with rocket launchers and other goodies, the women then steal a shitload of guns and ammunition from an even hornier gunrunner Backus and his comical crew of nimcompoops one who looks and acts like Oliver Hardy!
The ladies kidnap Farrell's 1 street dealer, Sticks Darby Hinton , and hang him upside down while Kako beats him about the nutsac with a metal pipe until he gives up the location of the latest drug drop.
They steal the drugs and Elaine and the girls bring it to Captain Miller who, at first, is pissed at Elaine for spilling the beans to the girls, but soon sees the advantages of having non-police personnel doing his dirty work for him.
The girls attack and destroy Farrell's drug processing plant but, in the fracas, Farrell kidnaps April and brings her to his boss, Mr. Burke's Lawford house, where they torture her in his swimming pool.
The girls rescue her in the nick of time in a hail of bullets, some swordplay and a motorcycle stunt. Farrell is attacked and killed by a pack of dogs!
Hooray for women power! The main problem with this film is that it's played like a broad comedy, but it's not funny at all. Namely, nudity, bloody violence and action.
Oh, well, I'm nitpicking. Whenever someone is punched or hit over the head, cartoon sound effects are heard, like birds chirping or a "boiiinggg!
This is the type of film where instead of killing Sticks after beating the info out of him, the girls set him free after he promises to go straight! Nevermind that he hooked Michelle's young brother on drugs or is known as the city's biggest street pusher, the girls take him at his word and send him on his way.
In all fairness, he dies a short time later when he falls off a tenement roof trying to escape from Farrell. Some of the women look very uncomfortable holding and firing weapons it's apparent Clark just handed them weapons and yelled out "Fire!
The film does have some camp value thanks to the eclectic cast of has-beens and fringe stars, but both Jack Palance and Peter Lawford look like they would rather be any place besides here.
The women do look good in bikinis and tight fitting jumpsuits, but when we watch films like this, we want to see what's underneath those outfits.
Also starring Liza Greer as Trish, the underage would-be member of the female gang who saves all their lives in the finale.
Director Clark cameos as a what else? Joe Nace Dennis Redfield returns from the war in a wheelchair and works at his father's grocery store.
A vicious street gang, led by Roy Boy Paul Koslo , comes into the store demanding protection money and, when Joe refuses, they kill a female customer with a knife to her stomach after ripping her blouse off and beat Joe over the head repeatedly with a meat hammer, tenderizing his skull and killing him.
Joe's squad leader, Bill Christopher Stone , comes for the funeral and stays after hearing the pleas of help from Joe's father Sid Conrad. After calling Popeye, his mysterious and unseen superior, Bill gets his old squad together to teach the townspeople how to defend themselves and to kick some gang ass.
Everything goes well at first, as the townspeople begin fighting back and reclaim their town. Hawkins Jim Antonio is not too pleased that the squad is in his town practicing vigilante justice, but the police commishioner Bruce Taylor is pleased with the results and tells Hawkins to lay off.
During a shootout in the middle of town, one of the squad members, Ray Gerrit Graham , is shot in the back protecting a small child and is killed.
Bill discovers that the gang is merely a front for a bigger drug running operation and, when the squad intercepts one of the drug shipments, the shit hits the fan.
The shipment turns out to be millions of dollars worth of heroin and Roy Boy armed with a flame thrower calls in backup of his own and holds the entire town hostage until he gets his drugs back.
Things go bad when Roy Boy hijacks a schoolbus full of kids. In a surprising turn of events, the kids disarm the hijackers one kid jams a pencil into one of the gang member's neck and Bill has a final fight with Roy Boy on the roof of a building.
It is then we learn the identity of the mysterious Popeye and how he was secretly helping the squad all along.
This is standard 80's action fare elevated slightly by a few well-executed setpieces and some extreme bits of violence. He does have the best line in the film, though, when he says to Bill, "All this for a shitty little cripple?
The only actor who registers is Andy Wood as Woody, the alcoholic squad member who finds redemption, sobriety and love in this little town.
A New World Video Release. Rosenblatt trains a squad of soldiers to become "tunnel rats", a special force designed to crawl through the tunnels and kill the enemy.
In charge of the squad is Sgt. Bruce Burns Jack Gilbert and it is his duty to lead his men into the tunnels and capture or kill Commander Von Dram Louie Katana , who is responsible for most of the ambushes in the area.
After a short period of time, where we are introduced to the members of the squad which also includes a prerequisite bar fight just before shipping off , our tunnel rats get down to business.
They enter the first tunnel, where they are attacked by snakes, dismantle some wired boobytraps, are attacked by bats and one squad member is captured and tortured by Von Dram The soldier says to him, "Fuck you, you slimy goddamned stinking gook!
The tunnel rats then raid another village and find another tunnel, which results in the death of some members due to spiked boobytraps, a snake pit and VC ambushes the rest of the squad members get Purple Hearts, even though they weren't injured!
Burns stupidly tells his new gook girlfriend that he and his men will be raiding another tunnel in the morning, so, you guessed it, Von Dram and his men are waiting in ambush.
Captain Rosenblatt shoots Von Dram multiple times at close range while comically repeating, "Fuck you, old man!
Burns and his skeleton crew must then blow up the tunnel it's the VC's main communications base before they are killed and Von Dram escapes.
While the acting in BATTLE RATS is some of the worst and stiffest I have seen in recent memory I was howling with laughter throughout the entire film , the violence is so over-the-top, it makes watching this almost seem like you are having a fever dream.
People including women and children are shot in the head, stabbed, impaled or blown apart. The eye-gouging scene is pardon the pun an eye-opener as are most of the tunnel scenes where the VC pop-out of their hidden trap doors in the floors, walls and ceilings and silently slice up the cast with their knives.
The subplot involving Sgt. Burns falling in love with Nama is the only real negative part of the film, as the action stops dead in it's tracks while these two non-actors try to convince us they are in love.
The finale, which finds Sgt. Burns facing Nama and Von Dram in the tunnels is one of the most pathetic pieces of acting you will ever see.
It is only saved when he happens upon Captain Rosenblatt, who is hanging by his arms with his eyes dangling out of their sockets, as he pleads over and over to Burns, "Shoot me!
But hey, the bodycount is high, the deaths bloody and the action fast-paced. What more could you want?
When it comes to Grade B action films, nothing comes close to the ones made in the Philippines and Indonesia. Because there are no rules or taboos that they aren't willing to break.
Never legally available on home video in the U. To find American POWs and bring them back alive. After capturing a gook soldier and "questioning" him by sticking a live grenade in his mouth , they head to an enemy camp where four American POWs are being held.
It turns out to be a trap, as Lt. Ransom and his men are outgunned, overpowered and forced to surrender. When Ransom gets back to base camp, he finds out that the Paris Accord has been signed, effectively ending the war.
Dimitri gets away and Ransom is seriously injured and is sent to a military hospital in Thailand, where he is tended to by old flame Terry Barbara Hooper.
Meanwhile, Sam is assigned to escort an important enemy General back to base camp. The General has switched sides and is willing to turn over a secret codebook to the Americans that contains the names of American double agents.
Dimitri has other plans, though, and ambushes Sam's squad, taking Sam and the General prisoner and killing everyone else.
After getting a little nookie from Terry, Lt. Ransom heads out to rescue Sam and the General, aided by Captain Dupre Lydie Denier and her squad of French resistance fighters, as well as Jacobs and Keller, who have a score to settle with Dimitri.
They all manage to save the General and kill Dimitri unfortunately, Sam is long-dead, hanging upside down from a tree and being eaten by rats. Keller even finds the time to romance Capt.
Dupre, but when Ransom gets back to headquarters and the codebook is deciphered, he discovers that someone close to him is a traitor, which forces him to seek justice through the barrel of a gun.
I didn't see that coming. This is the second of Filipino director Cirio H. Santiago's Vietnam War action flicks that he made in the 80's.
Santiago offers his usual cornucopia of action set-pieces, including lots of gunfights, explosions and bloody bullet squibs.
There are also some brief nude scenes, a smattering of gore shots to the head; Sam being eaten by rats and a good helicopter explosion this one isn't a model.
Frequent Santiago collaborator Joe Mari Avellana's script is nothing special, but the acting by a cast of Santiago regulars makes it all bearable.
The stinger at the end was also a nice touch and totally unexpected. My appreciation of Santiago as a director increases every time I watch another film of his.
The majority of his films may be nothing more than rip-offs of other movies, but he is a professional and is capable of turning out compact the majority of his films run 85 minutes or less , entertaining time-wasters.
BLACK GUNN - Three guys with white burlap sacks over their heads rob a Mob-run bookie operation and steal all the money, as well as the "payoff books" belonging to mobster and used car salesman Mr.
One of the guys is shot dead while escaping and one of the surviving trio is Scott Gunn Herb Jefferson Jr. Scott belongs to a militant organization called the Black Action Group BAG and he plans to use the stolen money to buy guns for his group so they can kill more rich white crackers.
Capelli is more interested in getting the books back, so he hires sadistic Mob muscle Ray Kriley the always entertaining Bruce Glover to find out who stole them and retrieve them by any means possible, including death.
Scott give the books to his brother , who knows how important they really are. Kriley tears apart Watts looking for the guilty parties, raiding BAG headquarters and threatening the life of the young son of one of the members in exchange for the names of the people involved in the bookie caper.
When Capelli catches wind that Gunn is involved, he sends crooked Senator Adams Gary Conway to try to appeal to Gunn's business sense, but Gunn sends the Senator packing to "the other side of the tracks".
Sensing that he's using the wrong tactics, Capelli then sends Toni Luciana Paluzzi to try to appeal to Gunn's fondness for women and we all know how much Jim Brown likes his white women.
Surprisingly, Gunn is able to resist her charms since he already has a main squeeze, Judith Brenda Sykes , but Kriley crashes the party and a shootout occurs.
Gunn gets the drop on Kriley and sends him packing, too. Kriley, in turn, kills Scott and leaves his body in front of Gunn's nightclub.
Gunn is now on a mission to get all those responsible for his brother's death, including the person who supplied Scott's name to Capelli. Gunn reluctantly joins forces with BAG leader Seth Bernie Casey and begins a path of death and destruction, which includes a one-on-one with Kriley in his mother's home, a visit to a party hosted by Senator Adams where Toni shows her true colors and a finale where Gunn and BAG battle Capelli and his men in a warehouse.
Basically, just acts like himself and beats up all the white people he can get his hands on. His fight with Bruce Glover is one of this film's highlights, even if it's obvious Glover is being doubled in some of the more strenuous stunts.
Some may find that this film is too slow, but there's a lot to enjoy here, from the black cop who can't stand Gunn's ass his white partner is actually the nicer and more level-headed of the two!
This isn't by far the most action-packed blaxploitation film you'll ever see, but it is a well-plotted and interesting one. Every time it was shown after that, I would watch it just to see if they caught their mistake.
When Washington receives a letter from his mother telling him that his brother has been killed, he decides to return home to "cracker country" with his buddies to "peacefully" find the killer To show how peaceful they are, the Black Six totally destroy a racist bar enroute to Mama's house.
They don't harm the people, just wreck the building! At his mother's house, Washington runs into some friction with his sister, Cissy Ruby Delaware.
She calls him a "modern-day Uncle Tom" because of his pacifist ways. Figuring that this gang is responsible for his brother's death, he takes the information to the police.
The white police chief was already aware of the facts but refuses to arrest the white bikers. The Black Six decide to drop their peaceful ways and have a final confrontation with the racist gang, led by Thor Ben Davidson.
A final scrawl on the screen warns, "Watch Out Honkys. The very brief action scenes are clumsily staged and shot and the ending is oh so confusing.
There is one brief shot of nudity, when Washington catches his ex-girlfriend Rosalind Miles hooking with a white customer.
On the plus side, the six leads are given very little dialogue, saving us from wincing in aural pain. Director Matt Cimber real name: A Unicorn Video Release.
While the new title is not misleading, one still has to wonder why it was necessary to change it.
The terrorists shoot the father in the back when he tries to escape, killing him, and abuse the mother, turning her into their personal slave they seem to get-off on humiliating white women and rape their black maid, eventually killing her when they are done.
The mother causes a diversion which ends in her getting her throat cut with a butcher knife , allowing Anna to escape by foot into the desolate landscape.
She is able to make it to the shack of drunkard Jock screenwriter Howard Connell and they both decide to head back to the farm to get some payback, but their truck breaks down and they are picked-up by American journalist Brad Robert Aberdeen , who drives them to a gas station.
Joe Allan Granville , the owner of the gas station, joins the trio as they head towards the farm, unaware that two of the terrorists have stolen Anna's Jeep and have left the farm, taking Peter along with them as a hostage.
When they get to the farm, the third terrorist riddles Jock with automatic gunfire before Joe kills him with his machine gun.
Anna, Joe and Brad then set out to save Peter, who is now traversing the desert by foot with the other two terrorists after the Jeep breaks down.
A series of events finds Peter and the last surviving terrorist holed-up in an abandoned building, while gung-ho Joe, pacifist Brad and worried Anna try to figure out how to save Peter.
It all ends with Joe dead, Peter escaping and the last terrorist limping back to his boat and heading back to his homeland, laughing like a hyena and proud of all the death and destruction he and his dead comrades have caused.
Bad sound recording aside the dialogue was recorded live and sounds muzzled, making much of what is being said unintelligible, especially with the thick local accents , BLACK TERRORIST still manages to entertain thanks to some great on-location cinematography and sudden bursts of bloody violence.
While the three terrorist seem to have been sent to this farm to "free" their homeland How they planned on doing this is never explained , they are really nothing but rape-happy thugs who get-off on inflicting violence and degradation to their captives and soon they turn on each other, as the injured terrorist is left at the farm by the other two because he will slow them down and the surviving terrorist shoots the second terrorist when he tries to stop him from raping a female whose automobile they have just carjacked.
The paper-thin plot is really only an excuse to show the terrorists killing their hostages, usually by shooting them lots of bloody bullet squibs.
I'm sure this film has some major political subtext in its home country, but it plays like a bloody torture session in most other countries.
And it is full of gory violence, to boot pardon my humor [because the country of Italy is shaped like a boot! The titled weapon, a prototype shotgun that can shoot grenades, explosive shells, tear gas, shells filled with ball bearings and other goodies.
After being tempted in using the weapon on a hotshot lawyer that sent him to prison, Tiger decides that he wants to live a quiet life at his hometown in Georgia filmed in Clayton, Georgia.
As he is about to walk away a shot rings out and the buck falls to the ground, seriously wounded, but not dead. Three hillbillies appear and Tiger tells the hicks to finish off the buck it triggers a flashback to when Tiger was a cop.
They refuse, laughing while the buck twitches in pain, so Jake finishes it off with the Blastfighter.
Tiger then adopts the buck's baby doe! He stops at the local store for some milk and a baby bottle and when he returns to his car, he discovers that the three hillbillies have cut the doe's throat.
Tiger gets into a fight with the trio, throwing one through the store's window He says to the hillbillies, "You wanna know who I am? I'm a son of a bitch!
Who wants to be left alone. Tom is the bigshot in town, a logging company owner whose sideline is selling animal parts, like the gall bladders of bears and deer antlers, to the local "Chinaman", who uses them as ingrediants for expensive Chinese medical cures.
When Wally and his two cohorts leave a gutted animal hanging from Tiger's front door, he gets pissed off, goes to the Chinaman's place of business, runs him out of town and gets into another fist fight with Wally.
Tom breaks it up, telling Tiger whom he calls "Ti" that if he had to choose sides betwenn Wally and him, he would always pick his brother's side.
He has no idea on what she is up to so, the next morning, he drives her to town only to discover that Wally has messed with the brakes, forcing Tiger and Connie to jump out of the car before it skids off the road and explodes, flipping down the side of a mountain.
After Tiger destroys Wally's new pickup truck in retaliation, Connie reveals that she is his daughter He was only away for ten years. Why can't he recognize his own daughter?
Don't ask too many questions because you will get no answers. Tiger tells Connie that he has had enough and they are leaving town but, before they can, Wally and his band of inbred friends kill Pete and Tiger's ex-partner who came for a visit and try to rape Connie, chasing her through the forest.
Tiger has no choice but to stay and rescue his daughter. The hillbillies ambush Jake in his new car after he rescues Connie, causing it to explode Tiger can't seem to catch a break with cars!
He and an always-complaining Connie He screams to her, "Where are your balls, Connie?! Tiger and Connie make it home, but instead of grabbing the Blastfighter, Tiger makes some Molotov cocktails, thinning out the posse by setting them on fire.
This is the point when it turns from a revenge action flick into a blood-soaked gore film. Connie is shot in the leg by Wally, forcing Tiger to remove the bullet with his knife he succeeds.
He then has to pull her leg bone apart which is jutting out of the wound so he can apply a splint all of this is shown in close-up.
Tom is overhead in a helicopter trying to spot them. When he does, he tells Wally to remain where he is and then tries to talk some sense to Tiger, telling him if he forgets everything that has happened, he will let them go free.
Wally doesn't like this deal, so when Tiger and Connie come out of hiding to talk to Tom, Wally shoots Connie dead and Tiger goes all Rambo on their asses.
He uses the weapon to destroy the hillbilly's vehicles, takes the arm off one hillbilly and then blows one hick apart until he is nothing but a bloody spray a nice gory body explosion.
He should have waited because he still has to deal with Tom. They agree to face each other with only one bullet in each of their weapons of choice a shotgun for Tom and a pistol for Tiger.
Of course, Tom being the bad guy, he cheats, but instead of killing him, Tiger shoots him in the knee.
The film ends with Tiger driving Tom back to town with a load of dead hillbillies piled up in the pickup truck's bed to meets their fates with the police.
While the graphic violence doesn't come until the final 20 minutes of the film, it is a hoot to hear the dubbing artists use exaggerated Southern drawls for the characters they are dubbing just like the dubbing in most Italian films, they have no idea how any American talks!
The on-location photography also adds a sense of realism to the proceedings. I was also surprised to read, during the closing credits, that no animals were harmed in the making of this film.
All the shots of real-life animal deaths including the buck and a pig were taken from stock documentary footage. This has to be a first because the Italians were not ashamed to show real animals getting killed for "entertainment value", especially their cannibal films.
Except for the embarsassing opening, where Code Red founder Bill Olsen introduces the film with Michael Sipkow he still looks in great shape while wearing his banana suit he doesn't want anyone to know what he looks like!
Stuffed with extras including a new interview with Lamberto Bava, who reveals that Producer Luciano Martino sold the film to various countries on the title alone, before any footage was shot.
He also said that he based the film's story on a true article he read where two Yellowstone Park rangers were caught selling animal parts to Asia.
While that tidbit does get a mention in the film, it is quickly dropped. Bava also says that he spoke English when he made this film, but in the past years, forgot how!
Listening to Eastman talk, he comes across as an ungrateful SOB, as he hates most of the films he appeared in and dislikes most of the people he worked with.
Also on the disc are new interviews with Michael Sipkow Who nows sells a protective type of glass called "miron". You can go to his website, www.
Sopkiw relates a funny story about meeting Quentin Tarantino at the video store he worked at before he became famous. Tarantino recognized Sopkiw right away and told him that this film was one of his favorites.
The store manager asks them to leave and a martial arts fight breaks out, which ends with the manager smacking his head against a counter and dying.
The four drunk bastards take off in their car, only to have it overheat, so they begin knocking on doors looking for water for the car's radiator.
They end up at the home of Diane Doris Cooper and her husband Edward the late Nick Nicholson and, wouldn't you know it, James and Diane use to be lovers way back when.
Another martial arts fight breaks out and the four drunks prove to be too much for Edward although he puts up a pretty good fight and Diane. James snaps Diane's neck While screaming, "You could have had it all!
Tracy begs Steve to turn over the medallion to the police, but he refuses and vows to kill all those responsible for his parents' deaths.
Things get complicated when Steve beats the snot out of George's son, Bruce, and when George goes to challenge Steve at his gym where still yet another martial arts fight breaks out , he notices that Steve is wearing his medallion around his neck.
Steve finally relents to Tracy's constant requests and gives the medallion to Tracy's father who also happens to be Steve's trainer to turn over to the police, but before he can do so he is attacked by James and the gang who get the medallion back and Tracy's father ends up in the hospital in critical condition, where he eventually dies.
That turns out to be the straw that broke the camel's back, as Steve goes on a bloody revenge spree he impersonates a sports writer to get James' address , first killing Frank by blowtorch and then nearly getting killed himself when the other three gang-up on him in a MetroRail train car.
After the usual 80's style training montage, Steve is ready to send James, Walter and George's souls to Hell when they kidnap Tracy. Lim's Silver Star Film Corporation production outfit, suffers from a case of "bad acting-itis", as well as having the music and sound effects cranked so loud, sometimes you can't hear the dialogue.
That's just as well, though, because whatever words you can make out are idiotic and unbelievable I have never heard anyone, even the drunkest of people, say some of the stuff you will hear in this film!
This is not one of Page's best films it's apparent his budget was much lower than most of his 80's films , as it is a cheap collection of martial arts and action sequences with the thinnest of revenge plots to hold it together.
While it is nice to see Ned spelled "Nead" in the credits Hourani, James Gaines, Jim Moss and Jerry Beyer get prominent roles for a change they were basically secondary or background characters in most other films , it's a shame it has to be in a film that is this poor.
While there are plentiful well-staged martial arts fights and stunts One ends with Steve tying Walter to the railroad tracks and the MetroRail runs him over [offscreen] , they are ruined by the over-amped sound effects and music tracks, not to mention the laughable acting talents of Sean Donahue and Christine Landson, who both seem to be reading their dialogue off of cue cards.
Only you can make that decision. CAGE - Must-see viewing for all fans of action cinema, but not for the reasons you might expect. Twenty years pass and Scott is still looking out for Billy, acting as his older brother, father, mother and, most of all, best friend, but times are tough and Scott has to figure out a way they can both make some money to survive.
With the bank note coming due on Scott's bar which caters to disabled veterans and no way to pay it, Scott has to figure out something and do it quick.
Since Tony also owes crime kingpin Mr. Diablo's second-in-command, Mono Daniel Martine , botches the torch job and kills Meme Maggie Mae Miller , the bar's beloved waitress, in the blaze When Scott and Billy hear the news of Meme's death, they both go on a crying jag that must be seen to be believed!
When a steadfast Scott still refuses to let Billy fight he really is about the best friend anyone could ever hope to have , Tony and Mario kidnap Billy and begin training him to fight, under the ruse that he is helping Scott raise money to rebuild the bar.
When the police refuse to help Scott find Billy, he sets out on his own, first by killing Diablo and Mono who suffers a fitting death by fire while begging Scott to kill him, which he refuses to do!
Scott must take Billy's place in the ring and fight Tin Lum Yin's East Coast champion, which leads to a shoot-out, many deaths and an unexpected windfall for Scott and Billy.
First off, how Lou Ferrigno didn't win an Academy Award for his performance here is beyond my comprehension Oscar rule of thumb: Play a retard, dress in drag or die of a terminal disease and you are guaranteed to get a nomination.
Yes, I am half-kidding, but the other half of me enjoyed Ferrigno's performance immensely, as he is affecting and totally believable as the retarded musclehead.
It's probably the best role of his career, acting-wise. Reb Brown also registers as Scott. His protective friendship with Billy is quite touching.
Secondly, there's a lot more going on here than a simple action film. Both Billy and Mario lack the intelligence or will to survive on their own, but the way they are treated by their prospective guardians is like apples and oranges.
The scene where Mario sympathizes with Billy while he is being beaten to a pulp by one fighter played by Matthias Hues is heartfelt and tugs at your emotions, as is their scene in the locker room where Mario pleads with Billy to fight one more time to save both of their lives.
Call me an old softy, but CAGE is that rare action film that pulls at your heartstrings while beating your body to a bloody pulp.
Look closely and you'll spot Danny Trejo as Mr. Costello's bodyguard, Jimmy F. Skaggs as the "Ugly Guy" and roller derby and wrestling veteran Queen Kong nee Dee Booher as a member of Diablo's gang who gets punched in the face by Scott.
CAGE II - Awful sequel to the surprisingly affecting CAGE that, while it reunites the main cast, director and screenwriter, misses the mark completely on what made the original film so successful: Lou Ferrigno returns as hulking simpleton Billy, who was rendered retarded during the Vietnam War by getting shot in the head while saving Scott Reb Brown from an enemy ambush.
Since that day, Scott has become Billy's caregiver and best friend. As Part II opens, Scott and Billy are attacked in a grocery store by Chin James Lew and his gang, who leave Scott for dead and kidnap Billy after shooting a tranquilizer dart into his stomach.
Billy becomes the star attraction of the Cage Cable Network, a brutal fighting corporation which now, unlike the first film, seems perfectly legal owned by Tin Lum Yin James Shigata , the chief bad guy in Part 1, who was supposedly crushed to death by Billy in the finale, but survived and now must wear a full body brace and walk with a cane.
Tin Lum Yin keeps Billy in line by giving him daily "vitamin injections", which are actually genetically enhanced steroids that turn Billy into a violent, no-mercy cage fighter, a degree turn from his normal, docile retarded self.
Billy, who believes Scott is dead, begins to refuse the injections with the help of pretty servant Mi Lo Shannon Lee, in a degrading role , which upsets Yin when Billy begins to get less aggressive and starts showing mercy on his opponents in the cage matches by "mercy", I mean he doesn't kill them.
Billy begins to go through withdrawal symptoms from the lack of injections, which Mi Lo helps him get through with the use of acupuncture. Wo Gerald Okamura want Billy to go back to taking the injections and when Billy refuses after finding out that Yin "purchased" Mi Lo in Hong Kong when she was twelve years-old and used her as a whore , Yin stages one final tournament before he leaves the city with millions of dollars in gambling bets.
Meanwhile, Scott who has been honing his fighting skills with Tanaka and Ogami's help enters the tournament under the alias "Robert Parker" in one of the most ridiculous disguises I have ever seen and works his way up the ranks.
Yin, who is not fooled by Scott's disguise believe me, a blind man could spot it , comes up with a surefire way to kill two birds with one stone: Of course, this all blows-up in Yin's face, as Billy and Scott join forces with Tanaka and Ogami to stop the madness.
When Yin shoots Mi Lo in the back, Billy goes after him, but the severely disappointing finale finds Billy shot three times and Yin escaping.
While the original CAGE had a decent budget and a star turn by Lou Ferrigno, this sequel is much too cheap looking check out the sparse audience members during the cage matches and is more concerned with fighting than characterization, which was the original's strength.
Ferrigno seems to forget that he's supposed to be retarded in this film and acts more like Ferrigno than a simpleton, which is a damned shame.
The acting, by a series of genre pros, is strictly generic Leo Fong is absolutely terrible here, but any Fong fan already knows that his thespian ability has always been lacking and returning director Lang Elliott THE PRIVATE EYES - and screenwriter Hugh Kelley seem more interested in showing people beating the stuffing out of each other rather unconvincingly and less about Scott and Billy's relationship.
It's no better or worse than the multitude of faceless DTV actioners that crammed the video shelves in the 90's.
CHALLENGE - You have to love a film that puts a disclaimer at the beginning of the film saying that they purposely made a film with no nudity, sexuality or bad language so that it is family-friendly.
Don't you believe it! While that statement is basically true, there's enough violence which they thankfully left out of the disclaimer on view here to make action fans happy.
Senate candidate John Frank Challenge producer Earl Owensby is about to hand over incriminating documents to the State Crime Commission, which doesn't sit too well with local crime boss and businessman Mr.
Guthrie screenwriter William T. He hires three assassins including one who's a martial arts instructor to kill Challenge, get the documents and also get a second set which he has hidden at home.
The assassins beat the snot out of Challenge, steal the first set of documents and leave Challenge bleeding but not dead and unconscious in a motel parking lot.
They then go to Challenge's house and accidentally knock out Challenge's wife Katheryn Thompson. Unable to find the second set of documents, they burn down the house, killing Challenge's wife and young daughter.
Challenge is rushed to the hospital and, after learning of his family's death, vows revenge on those responsible.
One-by-one, Challenge kills those responsible one involves a sharpened belt buckle! You could also lose everything too so do you dare risk it all?
