A cop who enforces his own brand of justice.
Joe Huff (Brian Bosworth) is a tough, loner cop with a flair for infiltrating dangerous biker gangs. The FBI blackmail Joe into an undercover operation that entails infiltrating "The Brotherhood" - a powerful Mississippi biker gang linked in the murder of government officials as well as dealing drugs with the mafia.
Boz as Joe Huff; an Alabama cop on suspension for doing things his way. When the FBI learns of his badassery; they enlist his help to take down a ruthless Mississippi biker gang known as the Brotherhood. Boz goes undercover as John Stone, and quickly gets into Stone Cold Trouble. Will Boz survive? Who will feed his pet iguana while he's away? Stone Cold has amble amounts of action, nakedness, and one-liners to please fans of B-movie awesomeness. It's Boz being Boz; in Craig R Baxley's super macho action adventure.
Have you ever seen a multi-colored mullet? Yup, Boz has one, and words can't do it justice. He doesn't like wearing shirts, but he loves vests and jackets. He rides…
A dangerous motorcycle gang is raining hell on the streets of Mississippi. The only soul brave enough to tackle them head on is a rouge cop with his own brand of justice. Some might recognize him from his days playing in the NFL. Others might also remember him as a huge bust with an ego that makes Cristiano Ronaldo look humble. But to me he is simply known as The Boz and he is one badass motherfucker. Ritz Crackers. Super Market Armed Robbery. The first time you see The Boz. Lay's Classic Potato Chips. Slippery when wet. Extreme target practice. Exploding pontoon boat. Snickers Candy Bar. The Boz's headband would make Olivia Newton-John and Richard Simmons jealous. Who doesn't have…
Wonderful tale of an incredible badass who, even though he kills all of them in spectacular fashion, totally fails to prevent a group of motorcycle enthusiasts from wiping out the Mississippi Supreme Court and a healthy chunk of the State Legislature.
If "Every film is a documentary of its own making" then this one leaves out that the cast had tickets to see Mötley Crüe on the day they were shooting the pitfight scene. It leaves out that after the director complained he was "seeing air" the stuntman who was fighting The Boz leaned into a punch more than he should have (The Boz did the right thing and sold the stuntman's Mötley Crüe ticket while the son-of-a-gun spent some time in the hospital). It also leaves out William Forsythe's odoriferous method acting, Lance Henrickson's Amazon biker wife-to-be, and the fact that they really trashed the Arkansas state capitol building (reportedly) resulting in the impeachment of the secretary of state. I guess it's not a very good documentary of its own making, but The Boz is still around so you can just tweet at him (@GotBoz44) and he'll verify these things.

Favourite Mullets in Cinema: Stone Cold (1991)
This is the 666th movie I've added to my list of watched titles. For a film of this type, I feel that is somewhat fitting.
Craig R. Baxley finishes off his unofficial action trilogy (following Action Jackson and Dark Angel) with a bang, in this biker-themed actioner. I would say that this easily has to be up there with Commando and Road House as far as guilty pleasure action movies go. Nobody would expect an NFL star to make a very charismatic lead, but Brian Bosworth does pull it off fairly well.
He plays a tough Alabama cop named Joe Huff, and he's the only one to call…
A flying motorcycle takes down a helicopter which lands on a car that of course explodes. Craig R. Baxley is a pretty cool guy. Only way this could be better is if Dolph Lundgren was in it but to be fair every movie would be better with a little Dolph.
Did a real nice job of washing the bad taste out of my mouth left by the poor "Uss Inianapolis:Men of Courage". Immediately we are gifted with a nice send up to "Cobra" followed by some of the most ridiculous and over the top white trash biker rally scenes just moments later. Gorilla presses andshooting cans of "Dixie" beer off of each other with fully automatic weapons that somehow blow up a car behind the target without hurting any onlookers are just a few of the things shown.
The direction is suprisingly competent throughout with the climax itself being a borderline all-timer. I don't know how they got permission to go ape and drive motorcyles inside the Arkansas state capital,…
A slightly brutal OK actioner. Bosworth not bad
"The devil was a rebel angel. If you want to fuck with the living, you'll have to learn to fuck with the dead!"
"I remember my grandfather used to take a chicken. Cut its head off, watch it spin around on the ground, if I run into you again I'm going to introduce you to my grandfather."
Sample dialogue from "Stone Cold".
First thought upon coming across this was who the hell is Brian Bosworth? Turns out he was a famous NFL player at the time which kind of explains why he is the lead in his debut movie. With an opening scene giving heavy "Cobra" vibes it is very obvious they wanted to launch a new action hero ala…
"I will peel your skin off with a knife dipped in shit."
I've wanted to see this for 25 years, and those years collapse on viewing – Stone Cold is a timewarp to 1991, which is in turn a parallel universe of tattooed tits and bikers kicking each other square in the balls.
Hard to pick a best/worst moment or performance, as part of the fun is watching pros like Lance Henriksen and William Forsyth go especially loony to compensate for The Boz's null-charisma.
This motherfucker starts with greasy gang members machine-gunning beer cans off their pals's heads, and ends with them massacring the entire Supreme Court (or something like it) while in session. Which is to say, remarkably, The Boz completely fails to save the day, but carries himself as if he did – a waxed and blow-dried weasel with a hilarious triumphal strut.
the inherent power of a passionate, organized collective (even one comprised entirely of idiots), capable of achieving their--perhaps misguided--goals even from beyond the grave... doubles as an argument for the effectiveness of dopey action trash. certainly made by a passionate, organized collective, anyway.
Now we're talking. What has happened to my beloved action genre? Once my favourite genre of films, but nowadays it's all gone a bit average. I love and miss the 80's and 90's for films. Just great all round entertainment. Stone Cold was a blast from my past. Probably my 3rd or 4th viewing over the years, but probably pushing 20 since I last saw it.
Yes, it's dated from a few aspects, fashion certainly being the main one, but it's nevertheless a great bit of nostalgia for me amidst all the Seagal, Van Damme, Arnie and Stallone releases I used to frequently watch back in the day.
I can't remember if this had a cinema release over here or…
Former NFL footballer Brian Bosworth made a legit stab at becoming an action hero in this entertaining, ultra-violent shoot-em-up. Bos is a tough Alabama cop who goes undercover inside "The Brotherhood," a murderous biker gang led by a scenery-chewing Lance Henriksen at his crazed best. Lots of bullets fly, stuff blows up, shirtless guys with bad mullets beat the crap out of each other. Tons of fun!
I'm a sucker for biker movies and this is one of my favorites. Seriously how cool was Joe Huff I mean he had a fucking pet Komodo Dragon in my book that's better than a orangutan (sorry Clyde). Lance Henriksen played Chains to perfection I loved him and William Forsythe. The Boz missed his calling as a professional wrestler he had the look and the timing to be one of the great ones.
