Synopsis


No Holds Barred
Hulk Hogan, in an inarguably appropriate casting choice, plays a professional wrestler in this action-packed drama. Rip (Hogan) is a grappling star who is approached by Brell (Kurt Fuller), the new head of the World Television Network. Brell wants Rip to wrestle on his network, but Rip insists on honoring his commitment to another outlet. Brell responds by launching a show called "Battle of the Tough Guys," in which the beefy regulars of a particularly rough drinking establishment fight each other on camera. Zeus (Tom "Tiny" Lister Jr.) soon emerges as the bad guy champion on this new show, and Brell uses Rip's friendship with his assistant Samantha (Joan Severance) to arrange a bout between Zeus and Rip. Rip is not at all interested until Zeus injures his brother and makes the fight a matter of personal pride. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Pure 80s Cheese

    I grew up in the 80s and vaguely remember this movie. I bought this movie after it was released on blu-ray and decided to have my younger brother and sister (ages 21 and 25) over to watch it with me. This movie is labeled as action, but since the acting isn't the best, I think I would consider it more of a comedy. We were all laughing at how cheesy the movie was, but we did enjoy it. There are only a couple extras on this blu-ray, but one of them is a 30 minute long WWF match from the 80s. The tag team match was between Hulk/Brutus the Barber Beefcake and Randy Savage/Zeus. A very nice inclusion in my opinion. If you can get the movie under $10, I would highly recommend it. The blu-ray visual quality looked very good, and the audio wasn't bad either.

    Just had to pick this one up with the low price and its in HD. Grew up as a young 80's wrestling fan like many others loving the Hulkster. And this one lead to his feud with the fictional character Zeus which carried over to one of the first Summerslams on PPV. I remember seeing this in the theater when it first came out and really enjoyed it although its kind of cheesy. It was a still a great movie for the avid wrestler fan and a look into the business back then. Still worth getting!

    What a great film, I had a great time watching this classic. Hulk Hogan is the greatest of all time. Seeing him in this movie I just remember all my childhood memories. Zeus look so hilarious in this film but scary looking. I got this for an amazing price, for a true classic. A lot of people who idly think that this isn't a classic but I am a true wrestling fan, always been always will be.

    No Holds Barred is a wrestling moving staring Hulk Hogan playing well Hulk Hogan. Its has really bad acting and some classically bad wrestling matches at its extras. Seriously if you love bad moves this one is a must have.
