Movie Reviews

Greatest Movie Ever...EVER!!!
Charles Dee | Port Arthur, Texas | 02/02/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Holy crap! This movie blew my mind! Action? TOO MUCH OF IT (almost)! Acting? TRULY OSCAR WORTHY! Theme Song? GREATEST SONG EVER! It's a shame that there aren't more movies out there with "Eye of the Tiger" as the theme song. I honestly believe it would go great with some movie where this guy has to face a huge challenge and he seems like an underdog however in the end, due to his amazing conditioning and training he overcomes his challenges and beats the favorite in a boxing match."

"Usually when the Eye of the Tiger song comes on your mind naturally brings you to picture Rocky and Apollo Creed duking it out ever so fake in the middle of the ring. However from this very day all we will see is a giant toothed Gary Busey who has just earned himself a top spot in Sid's ultimate action heroes. Over the years we have been huge fans of Busey (Brian, Brian, look. I'm Gary Busey. I'm frequently aggressive in situations that don't call for it) and all his crazy antics from B movies or celebrity rehab clips, but had no idea the action fury that dwells deep within him. We found this masterpiece on the Impact on-demand channel (yes the very same that brought us Ninja Vengeance [VHS]) so going into it the expectations were somewhat high. No matter how high the expectations Eye of the Tiger surpassed them with ease by actually being an awesome action flick. It even went beyond the realm of B by making itself enjoyed on more of an actual movie basis. Fantastic!

Gary plays newly paroled Buck Matthews who was wrongly sent away by crooked hick sheriff Seymour Cassel. Buck is a well respected Vietnam Vet around his old town and is looking forward to reuniting with his wife and daughter. What he doesn't realize is there's now a drug pushing motorcycle gang, led by a guy that looks like he's part of a Judas Priest cover band, whose wreaking havoc around his old stomping grounds. Once buck takes the law into his own hands against the gang the war begins. Once the gang takes his wives life Buck enlists the help of cop buddy J.B. Deveraux and prison pal Sal Pachino (who just happens to do the most hilarious Tony Montana impression). From here on out Buck starts taking down the hundreds of gang members one at a time with furious passion. We've always said you don't f*** with Chuck but that may have to be swapped out with Gary Busey who proved he's one of the kings out there.

Eye of the Tiger really had everything a great b action should have. Going into it we were figuring a hilarious B was on the way, but much like Death Ring [VHS] it proved to be so much more then that by being an edge of your seat, kick butt, action masterpiece. At this point in Busey's career you could easily give him the Fulton and say "this guy's got it" in the acting department. Much like his role in Point Break he nailed it with ease. In fact we loved this one so much the only proper way to close it out with the iconic Joe Bob Drive In Totals:

1 Sal Pachino

3 Decapitations at one time

Great Spy Hunter video game music when biker gang comes around

Buck and J.B air strike on biker gang

Bullet Proof 4x4 equiped with Machine guns and grenade launchers

7 Bikers Driving through the windows and walls of Busey's house

84 Dead bodies

and the most springboard launched gang members since Death Ring"
