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.
"Take that fucking harmonica down to the parking lot, man!"
Brian Bosworth stars as Joe Huff, a lone wolf cop who fits aptly into the role of marauding meathead in order to infiltrate Lance Henriksen’s bad ass MC club ‘The Brotherhood’. These guys specialise in gun running, but they also excel in shooting, stabbing and blowing up the citizens of Mississippi for shits and giggles. Henriksen’s Sergeant at Arms is played here by the great William Forsythe, who instantly distrusts Huff (who changes his name to Stone Cold to ‘fit in’) and suspects him of being 5-0, but The Brotherhood take Stone Cold into the fold and Huff goes deeper and deeper undercover.
Stone Cold is my first Bosworth film although I do remember seeing his name pasted across some…
I'm one of those children of the 80's/90's who grew up on a healthy diet of Schwarzenegger/Stallone/Van Damme movies and I have major nostalgia for that era of action filmmaking. I've seen all of the classics, but that doesn't stop me from desperately watching any horrible looking old action movies I can find in hopes that I'll run across something which fills that void of awesome, but kind of crappy, but also really good in a certain way at the same time action that I love so much.
Enter: Stone Cold, a movie I never would have thought that I'd enjoy as much as I did. Brian Bosworth isn't a terribly good actor, but that has never been a prerequisite…
Boom! Stub your toe in this movie and you explode! Horror alumni Lance Henrikson and William Forsythe are great at psycho biker roles, and Brian Bosworth just might be the first and only person to wear a mullet with my approval. Chaotic undercover biker cop picture that doesn't take the usual hero path.
"Stone Cold might be forgotten by the general public, but it shouldn’t be. It remains kind of unseen gem; the veritable diamond in the rough. It’s the kind of film that students of ‘80s and ‘90s action aficionados hope to still find from time to time as they backtrack and view titles that initially escaped them decades ago. While it remains a shame that Bosworth didn’t go on to have a bigger career as an action star, since he acquits himself very well here, it would be nice to see this film continue to find some love for decades to come."
There's a lot of plot here, much of which I doubt I got the gist of, but it's naturally a movie more about intricate action set pieces than plot. At its best — like in the opening during a grocery store heist — the stylish, over-the-top practical stunts are sheer artistry. Alexander Gruszynski's cinematography is better than it has any right to be. The film slows down during dialogue-heavy scenes, in part because Brian Bosworth has more screen presence than charisma. (It's a testament to the early '90s, though, that you leading man could parade around in a string bikini for no good reason.) The film is so jam-packed with testosterone, I expect a chunk of the budget went toward the cast's steroids.
Se non fosse stato per la bellissima recensione de i 400 calci non avrei mai recuperato questa perla (nonstante un ingiustificabile ritardo da parte mia).
Dato che la recensione linkata lì sopra dice praticamente tutto, ed è scritta una persona ben più qualificata di me, mi limito ad un paio di commenti a margine.
Forza d'Urto è fondamentalmente un Codice Magnum in cui la mafia sui generis è stata sostituita da un cazzutissimo gruppo di biker nazisti capeggiati da un gigantesco Lance Henriksen con tutte le conseguenze del caso: via i completi eleganti e dentro completini in pelle, via il casinò e dentro una sorta di comune piena di moto e svastiche, via il riciclaggio di denaro e dentro omicidi…
Pure budget excess.
cop 1: i hear this is a crate of cubes of pure testosterone theyve been illegally smuggling over the state line
cop 2: oh yeah
cop 1: what the fuck is this
cop 2: its just hundreds of dvds of Stone Cold
cop 1: JESUS CHRIST
cop 2: what
cop 1: you just got muscly as hell and look, you have a moustache now
cop 2 *in much gruffer voice*: YOURE GOD DAMN RIGHT I DO
cop 1: *explodes for no reason*
"you beat dat dude, man!"
Mullet cop vs mullet bikers.
The worst thing a movie can be is boring.
None of these movies are boring.
