Reb and Lou Ferrigno form the world’s most devastating and beefy tag team in cinema history as they’re pulled into the bloody world of underground mixed martial arts cage fighting, run by the nefarious Mr. Takagi.
My body is not ready for this film.
Oh man that Oscar scene was the greatest thing ever.
I’d pay money to see Reb Brown, Piere Kirby, Mentally handicapped Lou, and the chick from Chocolate in a hell in a cell match, wouldn’t you?
Cold Guy, are you going crazy? (Though that would be awesome.)
This was seriously one of the best (read: funniest) videos I’ve seen from Spoony in a long time.
I got all the references, and all the jokes were solid. The pace was good, and the movie wasn’t bad either.
That’s it, I’m donating, even though I’ve got no job. This guy is a live saver.
In preparation for Rebruary, I watched the Space Mutiny episode of MST3K.
I had a lot of fun with this one, and I was waiting for that well deserved shot against TNA! And Takagi certainly has the Dixie-Face for it, heh!
I’ve met Lou Ferrigno at the San Diego Comic Convention a number of years back, and he could have easily crushed my hand when he shook it if he wanted to. The man’s a friggin’ Machine, but a real friendly guy. He’s always fun to watch.
I’m gonna enjoy Rebruary! And just a strange side note: a while back I wondered to myself what the Street Fighter movie would have been like if Reb had played Guile. A hell of a lot better than Obviously-not-American Van Damme, I think that much is safe to say.
Imagine my surprise when I came to the Spoony Experiment at 5 in the morning and find a new video posted. My insomnia has finally paid off. I can’t wait for more episodes of Rebruary.
Hooray, now February sucks less
oh sorry, REBruary
I also like how i started watching this and thought it was another war movie but oops, it turned into a completely different movie.
Omg, the gangleader is Bobby Sixkiller from Renegade.. (yeah i watched Lorenzo Lamas weekly kicking ass, i was 13 years old)
YES! Great way to start the day
5:17 Hey, that’s Bobby Sixkiller from Renegade!
Thank you that was bugging the hell out of me
Also, Don Johnson kicked his ass in Harley Davidson & Malboro Man. And Steven Seagal in Hard to Kill.
thank god, I just got in from a night of drinking, a great way to end it. Cheers Spoon
Despite a minor hiccup here and there I was really impressed by the editing in this video to the point where I felt the need to write this compliment. I found it very reminiscent to the style of the earlier reviews from TSE, which is a bit odd considering the fact that someone besides Spoony handled the editing. Nice work Matthew Ford!
I assumed we had seen all the best material from Reb Brown but man was I wrong! This film even managed to match the awkwardly hilarious “Disneyland” scene. The only thing that could have made the crying scene with Reb and Lou any more epic would have to be giving both of them a “dead” Vietnamese kid to hold while they let their tears…. I mean testosterone leak from their eyes down their faces. I honestly find it incredibly hilarious that Reb Brown films seem to get goofier, and goofier in proportion to the higher the budget procured. I can only dream of how absurdly entertaining a Reb Brown film would be with a 200 million dollar budget.
One last thing if Pierre Kirby returned from the void, to battle Reb Brown the Earth would never survive. As soon as one of their fists met one of their faces the shock wave would total the planet.
I agree, the new editor did a very nice job.
whoever says man dont cry , i dare you to go and tell that to reb and lou
I Laughed a lot, Spoony and I’ll give you that (It Was HILARIOUS!!!)
Like the Nostalgia Critic before you, the Autism Jokes go too far. As a High-Functioning Autistic with Asperger’s Syndrome, I did not so much appreciate those jokes at all.
It wasn’t a joke. The chick in chocolate was autistic.
And I think his point was how wrong the whole thing is.
you should totally “air-hump” more often. LOL
Great review Spoony!
That electronic noise, I have heard that before on stuff. I THINK its a kind of audio interferance, I have had it happen in compression to DVD before, so maybe thats what happened on yours?
I’ll bet you anything that Mr. Takagi will return as The Leader in the sequel.
Shame on you Spoony for not knowing Al Leong who was also in Big Trouble in Little China and Lethal Weapon!
Holy crap! That’s Danny Trejo at 13:10 isn’t it?
Costello’s Bodyguard (uncredited)
or so says IMDb
It was definitely him…Spoony even called his non-character Machete just to drive the point across.
This is the most fucking brutal movie ever. It’s like poetry, if poetry could be made of muscles and bullets.
And 3x Thunderdome! An excellent start to Rebruary.
Why must you steal all the Thunderdome jokes?
Some of us are not as fortunate and you just need to share.
All we want is …. life beyond Thunderdome.
/bad Mad Max joke
It’s clear that Spoony can never get Beyond Thunderdome. Very much like Ted Striker will never get over Macho Grande :D
Damn you, you beat me to it! Surely you can’t make another Airplane! joke???
You’re right. I can’t… and don’t call me Shirley….
One MILLION dollars!!!
*pinky at mouth*
For years I thought the words to the song where “Spider meringue I’m still just a rat in a cage”…
As much as I do love watch The Spoony One and his videos…this particular video has rubbed me the wrong way. This is the first video I have seen with direct and indirect references to Autism and “brain damaged” individuals. Bare in mind, I was just diagnosed (age 23) with Asperger’s syndrome (a unique case of autism). Spoony is a great comedian, gives wonderful commentary, and has a rich and vivid imagination…that being said, how the hell did these jokes get past any of his friends or filters (personal or non)?
In my case, I am a very open-minded and tolerant person…but I can easily imagine many, MANY people who are not going to be happy with this video and some of the jokes presented. My only suggestion can be to please choose your jokes in the future more carefully…because I don’t want to stop watching the channel if these jokes become habitual.
I’m not sure if this is what you mean, but just in case it is, the slow-thinking he’s mocking in Lou Ferrigno’s character isn’t that he’s mocking the brain damage he suffered, but it’s a play off when Ferrigno played the Incredible Hulk in the television series back in the eighties (I think?), where he would get angry and this would cause him to a) hulk out, and b) revert his mind to a primal state where he could barely think in one word sentences.
If you’re talking about the reference to autism in the movie Chocolate, I think that was pointed at the idea of exploiting people who aren’t in a position to rationally evaluate their options, but I could be wrong on that one.
… Of course there is a very good change I could have missed the point you were talking about all together (I’m pretty good at doing that hehe).
Will you people stop being so touchy? “OH SPOONY YOU SO FUNNY UNTIL YOU MAKE A JOKE THAT I DECIDE TAKE PERSONALLY HURR”
This PC bullshit is like cancer to the mind,and it’s everywhere these days. Grow a fucking sense of humor and stop whining.
OK, the Gloves are Officially Off, you inconsiderate Clod of a Troll.
All-in-all I respect SpoonyOne. He’s a nice guy, and I’m actually looking forward one day meeting and/or collaborating with him on a series I’m getting off the ground. That being said, You obviously have little to no idea what you just said. The simple fact of the matter is that this isn’t PC we’re worried about. It is our simple dignity. I remember a few years ago there was an add campaign on TV about saying “Gay” because it’s “Insulting.” Now, I know that there are many of those in such a lifestyle that feel offended when someone says a slur like that, but the one we SHOULD be stopping is the slur of those who don’t understand it’s meaning. Saying “Retarded” is one of the darkest slurs, as it does not offend those it’s directed towards because they may or may not understand it’s meaning.
I myself am diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger’s Syndrome and agree with James assessment. YOUR argument I can understand; it’s a common topic on shows like South Park and the like. The problem is that unlike Race, Gender Sexual Preference, Religion, Creed, or Morals, this is directed to a more specific group where the majority cannot and do not defend themselves.
I am not mentally retarded, as I am in the Higher-Functioning Spectrum of Autism. Don’t know what that is??? I really didn’t doubt it. Read a book on it; you may actually learn something instead of going about an ignorant Troll Tirade without knowing what the Hell your yelling about.
I conclude with this: Nostalgia Critic SpoonyOne is not (at least, outside the X-Mas Special), but even Doug Walker said in his Next Top 11 F***-Ups that his similar joke in one of his reviews was #1 on the list. Please take all of the facts into consideration before you Scream on the Internet.
“the Gloves are Officially Off”
OHNOES,HIT THE DECK
“Saying “Retarded” is one of the darkest slurs, as it does not offend those it’s directed towards because they may or may not understand it’s meaning.”
If you insult somebody,and they didn’t understand they were being insulted,is it still an insult?
If you try to offend somebody,and they didn’t take any offense at your comment,can you still say they’re offended or that your comment was offensive?
Do you see the problem here?
“I am not mentally retarded, as I am in the Higher-Functioning Spectrum of Autism. Don’t know what that is???”
Believe it on not,I do. So now what? Did you have a plan?
I think we can all benefit from a little less butthurt in out lives. This is comedy. If we had to pass every joke through a fucking committee just to make sure that it doesn’t offend somebody (god forbid),there would soon be nothing left to joke about.
Summarily: you think that being affronted by comedy, and treating it as an offense when it touches on a subject too close to home (no matter what the context or point of the joke is) is irrational and needs to stop. I agree with you … to a point. There is always a line when comedic value crosses over into offensive insults. Spoony has never crossed that line, as far as I can tell, and it certainly hasn’t come even near in this review.
However, even though your argument is reasonable, jumping on someone and calling them an idiot as soon as they voice a concern isn’t really that helpful. Your argument is intelligent, and you don’t need to call out someone on the defensive to make it stick.
I just thought I’d sorta give my two cents worth.
I agree with all that you said. I now understand his points, and at the time I felt the tone seemed threatening (it still does, but hey, that’s just my opinion). All in all, let’s end this flame war before too many people in the room get burned.
I have to say I’m more offended by the use of a diagnosis as a blunt instrument to call foul on insults that didn’t even happen. You say you are diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and thus understand how the jokes in Spoony’s video can be seen as offensive; I’d counter that I am also diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and that I am not offended by Spoony’s jokes, so therefore your argument based on personal sensitivities are moot. Which means we’re back to square one, arguing whether Spoony actually made fun of anyone for being mentally challenged. The answer is simply no. Pretty much any joke you’re thinking of is a Hulk reference, and everything else is when Spoony actually calls the movie out on its offensive subject matter. What’s really offensive to me is that you’re shitting on Spoony for something he obviously understands well enough because he draws attention to it in the video.
So for the record, there’s no controversy here, and this was a clean, entertaining review. And I’m looking forward to the rest this month.
I don’t want to send the message that I was mad at SpoonyOne, so if any of you got that message, then I’m sorry it wasn’t clearer.
What I was responding to was the inconsiderate NuclearRaptor, who, unlike SpoonyOne, was openly attacking and insulting another.
“Believe it on not,I do. So now what? Did you have a plan?”
Yes: It seems in blatantly going after me and insulting me that you may know what it is, but you have little to no understanding of the disability itself. I’ll give you enough credit that you understand how to troll an Aspie, but you have no respect for us and our dignity as people.
“If you insult somebody,and they didn’t understand they were being insulted,is it still an insult?”
If a person, raised in a cult, brutally kills a group of people and doesn’t feel ashamed, is it still wrong? (Local Laws aside)
I want to say that I enjoyed the review, but I feel like some people here feel unwelcome, that is all I am trying to say.
“What I was responding to was the inconsiderate NuclearRaptor, who, unlike SpoonyOne, was openly attacking and insulting another.”
What? How is anything I said “openly attacking and insulting”? All I said was to stop taking things so seriously and grow a sense of humor,and you instantly flipped the shit.
You are the aggressor here.
“You have little to no understanding of the disability itself.”
Keep telling yourself that everyone who disagrees with you “just doesn’t understand”.
“I’ll give you enough credit that you understand how to troll an Aspie, but you have no respect for us and our dignity as people.”
Jesus christ,now there’s some sort of special way to troll you people? You give me too much credit here,brosef.
“If a person, raised in a cult, brutally kills a group of people and doesn’t feel ashamed, is it still wrong? (Local Laws aside)”
The whole point of my examples was the issue of the victim’s feelings or,rather,lack thereof. Go back and try again.
And going back to your earlier argument:
“The problem is that unlike Race, Gender Sexual Preference, Religion, Creed, or Morals, this is directed to a more specific group where the majority cannot and do not defend themselves.”
Good job on trying to single out your social group while simultaneously disregarding all the other ones and looking like a hypocrite as a result. If you’re really trying to claim some sort of moral ground here and bring this PC cancer into this,at least admit that it should apply to everyone across the board,not just you.
My little brother has Asperger’s and ADHD and I never found anything in this reveiw that insulted mentally ill people in anyway. All of his jokes except one were directed at towards Hulk references and the one about the arcade machine has been seen in so much of today’s media nobody would, or should, draw insult from it. I have seen people make fun of my brother and it foes over his head. I know what insults to mentally ill people sound and look like be they subtle or not. There is none to be found here and your just looking to find a reason to bitch about something on the internet.
And about the the top 11 Nostalgia Critic F*ck-Ups, as you said, he is not the Spoony One and Spoony is not him. If I remember that episode correctly the joke wasn’t insulting as much as was that people like you took offense at the fact he brought up the mentally retarded people as a topic for the movie. All in all you have no reason to mad at Spoony because your argument holds no ground against anything that was brought up in this review. What you took as insults were obvious references to the fact he Lou was the Hulk and nothing else if your going o keep bitching about this please, take it somewhere else.
Spoony made (passing) reference to the inappropriateness of the movie’s treatment of Billy. And as 13secondspastmidnight mentioned, the mentally impaired jokes can be as easily accredited to Lou playing Hulk.
I think it’s safe to say “these jokes” won’t “become habitual,” unless we get a similar cosmic alignment.
Don’t you mean… ORBITAL WOBBLE?
“In my case, I am a very open-minded and tolerant person”
No, apparently you are not. Stop crying. The end. Problem solved.
This comment from nuclearaptor gets it right: “This PC bullshit is like cancer to the mind,and it’s everywhere these days. Grow a fucking sense of humor and stop whining. ” AMEN.
I’m going to start modeling my life on Reb Brown. Just scream during whatever I’m doing.
and is that a Sidehackers shirt I see? I got the MST3K volume 3 not two weeks ago with that particular piece of cinematic swill. Spoony, you magnificent bastard.
this makes me want to watched unleashed (aka Danny the Dog)
Wait a minute…. Mad Max met Master Blaster -before- he even knew about Thunderdome!!
Actually, I was hoping for a Blaster Master joke… Yes, I am a nerd.
With all the product placement there may as well be some point where Reb says “COOOOOOOOOORS!” as a battle cry.
I laughed so hard at the Thunderdome joke. xD
poor burton at 9:15 :D such a good review :D I just hope someone at some point will review DEATHMACHINE!!!
“You’re booking TNAimpact, aren’t you” – Had me grinning like a maniac.
I would say that bullet wounds to the head don’t work that way… but who am I kidding, this is so awesome that the rules of anatomy and physiology have been suspended for the duration of this film. If anyone would like to know what holding your heart outside of your body feels like, please feel free to do so now with no negative repercussions for the running time of this movie (although finding a cardiothoracic surgeon by the end of it to repair whatever damage you may have done when you stupidly removed your heart from your chest to see what it would feel like, may prove to be a valid contribution to your health).
Smashing Pumpkins playing over the ending credits was just a perfectly fitting end to a great review. And now I feel a strong compulsion to go back and re-watch every review Spoony has ever made that included Reb Brown.
That review was one of the best in quite some time. I don’t know if it was the material you had to work with or not, but that was a very fun review.
Good stuff, who’d have thought Mr Takagi was a shiftier promoter than Vince McMahon?
very entertaining review the whole way through. great energy, quite funny. also, smashing pumpkins.
This is a great idea.
that movie was pretty badass for an underground b movie, i mean damn, blood sport aint got nothing on this!
Oh Tropic Thunder. That’s all I can really say lol.
Lou Ferrigno as Simple Jack. Now there’s a casting call!
Apparently it is a game series, great joke though.
I can understand why you like Reb Brown so much, he sure is entertaining to watch sometimes!
That ruled. I’m writing KoDT to tell them to bring you back as thanks.
lol, typo in the credits. you typed Tropic Thinder.
i hate when that happens. =P
At first I thought you were playing around using that voice for Lou’s character and thought “Heh.” Then I heard the character talk for the first time, thought “Awww,” and felt uncomfortable laughing at every other scene with him.
Ok, that movie was fucking awesome. I have to get that now.
Choppers are made to be gotten to hehe
Had so much fun watching this. Keep it up and hold your sanity Spoony!
Damn, a movie with Captain America and the Incredible Hulk is exactly as awesome as it sounds.
Actually far more awesome!
Al Leong is the man http://www.alleong.com/
DANNY TREJO !! EPIC MOVIE
why was reb brown not in the expendables!! was it because the the disk would not last more then 5 secs after being created because of the awesomeness with what it would have had!
Put Reb Brown in the Expendables 2 now! And make sure he tells Stallone that he “walks like a ruptured duck!”
LOL, Awesome review.
This movie was insane:
Reb Brown, The Hulk, Mr. Takagi, Asian guy from Die Hard, Danny Trejo…..
and the Thunderdome reference was epic!
13:48 Maybe Lou should have taken Osiris’ advice.
“You never go full retard!”
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!! You SERIOUSLY took a jab at Pierre Kirby, Spoony?! Damn! I see some angry Brad in your future!! :-o
Cage 3: Cinema Snob vs The Spoony One
When they can’t “Fight again in 30 minutes!” Kung-Tai Ted and Insano will take their places.
It should be a free-for-all, with Spoony having Doctor Insano and Turl in his corner and Brad having 80′s Dan and Kung Tai Ted in his. I smell eeeeeeepic!
So We have a dumb fight promoter using a brain damaged fighter. Sounds like Impact and Eric Young. Only way more awesome in this case.
That reporter-lady is completely irrelevant to the story, but damn she looks good in a suit.
That was fucking badass.
Also, I didn’t even realize Spoony had not edited this until the end credits. Great job.
Another great video.
jab at Pierre Kirby? O shit.
I didn’t start the flame war!
Spoony CANNOT. BE. STOPPED.
And who would want to? Rebruary rocks.
I grew about 5 lbs of muscle just watching the review of this.
I sometimes have this strange condition where I forget how awesome Reb Brown is
thank you Spoony for helping me remember :D
also, thought the editing was pretty good, is this who you’re going with or are you still seeing who works with your stuff the best?
It’s pretty sad that the only reason why Lou and Reb were cast were simply on the Marvel connection, with Reb being Captain America and Lou being the Hulk. What’s even more terrible is that in order to hide Lou’s speech impediment (Lou is legally deaf) that they went along and said he suffered brain damage and is mentally handicapped. Shit, I think Lou is overdubbed before he gets shot in this film. This same problem occurs in the ’83 Hercules film as Lou was overdubbed to shit in that one.
Also, it’s funny how Reb is set up to be the hero in this, yet Lou does most of the cage fighting and even fights off the champion in the film, yet Reb fights some jabroni in the cage and that’s the end of the film!
Where can I get that shirt?
A character named Tiger Joe and no reference to God Hand? That is a missed opportunity!
I want to see a new review in 30 minutes.
Awesome. Simply awesome.
MORE REB! YEAH!
Brown history month in February? Hmmm. lol
….Errrrrrrrrrr… Dear movie extra: Cherries are not furry. That is all.
Haven’t you always wondered about your dad’s past? :)
Fantastic work Spoonyone. You made a perfect choice with your new editor. The guy is great.
Can’t wait to see more of Brown History Month.
Finally! A history month I can get behind. That was an awesome review Spoony. This movie really had quite the all-star second banana/extra cast. Also I gotta say it looked like that first guy Lou fought was using some rather unorthodox maneuvers when they were stuck up against the cage
CAN’T WE GET BEYOND THUNDERDOME?
I think this beyond Thunderdome was a little weaker than the others, but as recurring jokes go it’s one I like.
Awesome way to kick off Rebuary Spoony, your new editor seems to be pretty good too. had no idea it wasn’t edited by you.
I think that wierd noise in the bar was the jukebox changing songs.
Know what would have made Reb more badass? If he’d toasted a marshmellow over that guy he set on fire!
Everyone do the Reb Brown! “YAAAAAUUURRRGGGGHHH!!!!” BTW Nice shirt Spoony! Sidehackers FTW!
am I mistaken or did I see danny trejo?
It was him. Quite a number of people in this one who you have seen somewhere before, even if you don’t remember where, at least at first.
That was no hispanic gangmemeber. That was Bobby Sixkiller from Renegade, man!!
I knew I wasn’t crazy…right, who am I kidding there, but I knew that was the guy from Renegade!
OMH, I just saw Danny Trejo! He was just chilling in the background D:<
I used your “Beyond Thunderdome” gag, and people loved it. Gold, Spoony. Pure gold.
Well, it’s actually a Mystery Science Theater gag… but nobody uses it like Spoony. And I mean nobody. Ever. Bold men dare not attempt it, wise men shy from contemplating it, fools cannot comprehend it. Thus, the gag can only be wielded by a madman who is all these… and none of them.
Awesome Sidehackers shirt Spoony. I was also quite impressed with Reb’s spinning heal kick in the bar fight, good stuff.
lol I need to see this movie immediately
The weird sound in background is a cheap attempt of video poker machine sound.
So, uh…..why the “I’m not dead” thing by James Shigeta at the end, when he even doesn’t appear in the sequel, as far as I know?
lol, a Glee ad spot came up after the video…
I kept expecting Lou Ferrigno to say “Tell me about the rabbits, Reb!”
I’m still recovering from a rofl went wrong. Pure Epicness how Ferrigno just takes a headshot like he takes a shit.
I think they meant “Blaster Master”, you know the NES game…
Weird that you mentioned the “Beyond Thunderdome” joke four times, despite the fact that the first time you used it, you said “How many times do you get to use that joke, people!? NEVER!”
That, and not only have three of the jokes have come from a reference to Master Blaster (Howling 2, The Dungeonmaster, Cage) and three of them have come from Reb Brown movies (Strike Commando, Howling 2, Cage). That, and you didn’t celebrate on the Dungeonmaster review. Then again, that WAS Insano…
this was entertaining…
is it just me or has Spoony gotten significantly more entertaining recently?
Dude, Reb Brown and Lou Ferigno….BEST DUO EVER!!!!
I am glad that you said that it was Vietnam, because I thought the California desert by the highway was invaded by pajama monsters. And why did they leave the gunner who got shot behind, that pissed me off, and in the middle of USA USA USA Army spot.
You know, I was amazed that at no time in this review did Spoony mention that Reb Brown was also Captain America. I frankly thought a Captain America/Hulk team-up joke just seemed to write itself.
I’m surprised you didn’t use another MST3K reference from Diabolik. “I’m going to take a picture using the largest camera in the world.”
Great review, though!!!
XD I made that
Well, since no one is going to acknowledge the elephant in the room, I guess I’ll say it. The New Editor Rocks. I know, now that I made a praise, no one will pay attention. So I should add in one gripe. What was with the squares that kept popping up in the center of the video. Like they were a few microseconds behind the rest of the footage? It’s not game killing, but a bit annoying.
Now for My Rating:
Excellent work as usual, Spoony. Haven’t posted in awhile, but I always keep up!
Loved the Die Hard jokes and I was waiting for you to spot Machete the second I noticed him in the background. It was also interesting to see that one “random Asian bad guy” play a good one and have a few lines of dialogue.
1:29- No wonder his squad is destined for failure, they assigned a shrub as to be the commo guy.
3:15- Those first two guys seen in the cage were on loan from the Sega port of Pit Fighter.
4:28- How does that guy even make it to the Chinese underground fighting ring without cash to cover?
5:23- Furry cherry? Those have probably gone bad.
6:20- No wonder the goombas are in a world of hurt betting on fights. They think a couple of slow-as-Worf mental cases can “probably make a lot” of money after seeing them beat up on townies who eat rotten fruit.
7:00- Why the fuck is Mimi just standing there, still in the exitless Coors Light closet? Is she locked in with some sort of shock collar mechanism?
7:45- Lou looks like he has to take a Hulk sized shit.
9:39- That’s a peculiar place to keep a sponge mop. Don’t they have porch or a closet of something.
8:43-/10:20 -Why are so many people eating penis shaped sandwiches in such a short period of time?
10:38- “You fucking crazy man? Those are city trash cans. Now how am I supposed to get my deposit back.” Why else would some super hard street thug give two craps about garbage recepticals?
11:31- A man just crazy enough to mail that jeep back from Vietnam one piece at a time, that’s who their fucking with.
12:00- I’m glad to see the goons keep their can of gasoline next to the Lite beer. It’s good to know that they chase the swill beer down with something a little more palatable.
12:48- Nikon Super Zoom 9000: Undercover agent secret spy cam of choice since 1989.
13:09- Danny Trejo!
14:01- Takin’ it deep and on a slant.
15:25- White Fever has a short incubation period. But don’t worry, she’ll be okay; because as they say “Once you go white, you’ll soon take flight.”
18:43- Fish hook bitch.
19:22- OH SLAP!!(?)
19:48- Well of course he would still be alive. His Lantern ring hasn’t had time to find another.
Believe me. Furry Cherries don’t last long.
(I’m a Wookiee. My GF is a snow leopard)
Reb Brown and Lou Ferrigno coul take out the expendables!!!! You have Capitan America AND The Hulk. You have half of the FSKNG AVENGERS!!!!!!
I can’t believe that you have a Cool as Ice poster Spoony.
My mom overheard this and said you sound like Kermit the Frog. Weird.
Pierre Kirby never appeared in a cage match movie because IFD was too cheap to build one.
So… there must be a Reb Brown vs Pierre Kirby movie somewhere, right?
With the potential of a Spoony vs. Snob crossover? SQUEE!
Illegal underground cage fighting? Wasn’t that the premise of No Holds Barred?
9.7 from the USA judge…let’s go to the Russian judge and see what he says…
I want to see a Reb Brown vs Pierre Kirby in a movie, it will be the most awesome thing in movie history
Okay, these guys that ran the illegal operation were asking for it. They tried to ramrod The Hulk AND Captain freaking America!!! Talk about a no win situation.
just throw in wolverine and you’re ready to face capcom
How did a movie about forcing the mentally handicapped to fight in illegal cage matches to the death ever get a sequel?
Side hackers racing league… nice
Captain America and the Hulk kicking ass. Now if only they got the guy who played the 1970s Spider-Man…
Have you heard of the movie “Knucklehead”?
It is essentially an entire movie about a mentally handicapped guy wrestling.
It took me way to long to figure out what Brown month meant. Great idea. But now I feel like Spoony will not go and see the Justin Bieber movie to do a vlog review. What, don’t judge me, we forced him to watch Twilight after all.
I used to own this and Cage 2 on VHS. Bought ‘em at the now defunct “Pick-A-Flick” can’t remember how much I paid, probably like three bucks. Money well spent. LOL.
Awesome video! And I’m autistic and have Aspergers syndrome and have an IQ of 140, but I really can’t be mad at Spoony for his two jokes, considering 1.) I don’t even know what he said while the guy was on the arcade machine (he was talking too fast) and 2.) I find the “Chocolate” reference funny because I do think that chick could win that cage fight. Any other Aspies out there, try and chill. This wasn’t as bad as some of the other stuff that is posted on the internet about us that is offensive.
Jeez- I spent, like, the entire second half of this review wondering if Spoony was even ONCE going to mention how freaking bizarre it was that Danny Trejo was just hanging around in the background… and all I get is one little Machete reference?! Come on; it doesn’t get much weirder than Danny Trejo, Lou Ferrigno, and Reb Brown all in one movie!
omg i was doing the same thing…i was like *hey its Danny Trejo XD* they even called him danny in the movie lol
love this movie … remember watching it with my father. good times good times Reb and Lou together… Bad guys never had a chance .
great review as always can not wait for Cage 2 keep up the good work.
Spoony Can not be Stopped!!!!!
Way to no-sell that smack at 15:45, Lou…
I lol’d hard at the John Phillips reference. That was such a nice suit…
Nice Pierre Kirby Jab XD
Funny you started this though, because like two weeks ago, Reb Brown was found by TMZ after dinner with his family XD Seemed like a pretty nice and happy guy, it was sad how many people at TMZ didn’t know who he was though D:
For the record, Lou appears to be playing Tempest(see around 6:00).
It was a little difficult to notice, but I did manage to find a comparison shot of a similar machine:
I’m sure it was for the sake of a joke, though, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
For starters, I’d say that what you say about putting someone with brain damage in the ring is valid. It’s a deeply terrible thing to do, and deserves every ounce of ridicule that it gets. It’s maybe a step above parading young kids around on television. Anyways, with the head trauma, it’s amazing what a body can survive. Hell, Nash covered a story where a guy was stabbed in the head with a knife and lived, and there’s at least one (semi-) famous account of a man who took a rail spike or some other metal object through the skull and lived. The exact name escapes me. Also, one person I talked to said it looked more like a glancing blow… which I can believe (though, not that he would have maintained his deathgrip). Still, to me it looked like a pretty direct shot through the brain, so who knows.
p.s. you were right, those divas were shrill as hell
I’m curious as to the doll on Lou’s table five minutes in.
Hey, that latino gangmember is Branscombe Richmond of the Renegade fame. Though the decision to cast a native american as a latino gangmember is a bit odd.
At the ending dead space 2 trailer music :D:D
yes, that, and also smashing pumpkins. the.. most popular song, by smashing pumpkins.. O_o annnyway…
spoony + reb brown movies = epic awesome
That song is so dirt old and it’s like people are still discovering it LOL.
That’s how bad Alternative music is now. People are rediscovering bands from the 90′s.
reb brown has that effect on people.
BROWN History month?….Really Spoons? Really? lmao
Action’s greatest unsung hero is actually Pierre Kirby. By the way:
RED BROWN VS. PIERRE KIRBY!! MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!
That’s like a Deadliest Character… but with PEOPLE!
Unfortunately Pierre is no more… pour out a colorful ninja Forty from the side of the next yacht you ride.
Of course women immediately fold to the animal magnetism of Reb Brown. How could any poorly constructed female character not immediately drop her panties for that side of beef.
The hell man, what’s wrong with you? That joke you made was really offensive, I’m seriously disgusted and may never come back here! I mean really, what kind of sick deranged freak would call Coor’s Light a delicious beer and actually claim to be be thirsty for one? I’m so mad right now, I may even sue you for emotional torment! Awesome review by the way, good job from the new editor, can’t wait for the next Reb Brown movie review.
I’m with you man! Theres no better beer out there than BEER beer. It goes great with BURGER burgers.
…I’m surprised there’s apparently not one person who heard “Tiger Joe” and thought of God Hand. Aside from me, anyway.
I stand corrected, the comments refused to load more apparently and this comment has been made already.
…. It’s still a shame the joke wasn’t made.
This movie is absurdly violent… I´m proud of you, 80´s! And yay for Rebruary!
Also, MasterBlaster is an actual game series, which is playable on Amiga and Windows. What’s with you and the Beyond Thunderdome jokes? How many people actually saw that movie?
“I like wrestling”
“…but I don’t like fighting.”
“…but I like to wrestle”
“…but I don’t like fighting”
Will you make up your mind?!
Wow, that may be the most over-done headshot i’ve seen since Toy Soldiers.
Why hasn’t Steven Seagal sued Red Brown for stealing his head snap finisher?
Because Reb brown does it better. Bow before him! lol
Um…what exactly happens to Reporter Girl’s pants? Did they use them to light the fire (when the guys keep their shirts on)? Or do women’s clothes just spontaneously start falling off when exposed to Reb’s raw manliness?
What exactly happens to Reporter Girl’s pants? Did they use them to light the fire, when the guys keep their shirts on? Or did exposure to Reb’s raw masculinity cause her clothes to just spontaneously fly off her body?
“John Phillips of London… I have two myself.” AWESOME!
Hulk invest million dollars wisely, diversify portfolio. Hear good things about Wayne Enterprises.
OH Shit he twitched; quick kill him kill him. AAAHHHH!!!!!
As always Spoony Awesome review.
I’m not going to lie when I said I almost started crying watching Lou and Reb crying together. This movie looks like a classic and I hope I’m not the only one that thinks this movie is the guys to make that shitty video game “pit fighter”
Hilarious review. Love it.
Soo umm were they supposed to snap the necks of the guys they beat? Cause unless he didn’t show the scene where they said it was a fight to the death seems like our heroes just started murdering their opponents for the hell of it lol.
Spoony seems to be pretty enthusiastic about this one. Must really like Reb Brown.
This movie proves that Reb Brown is So awesome, women automaticly fall in love with him on sight.
Wow, Noah has a shave and a haircut. O_O
Yes, but did he pay two bits?
reb brown in the vietnam scene sounds like if you were listening to a sam kinison cd from 5 miles away
I supposed it would be to much to ask to have Reb Brown fight Danny Trejo, but to be honest the universe might implode from the sheer awesomeness of their combat.
Spoony, I think that I have an answer that will blow your mind (again, even!). I think that the mechanical beeping sound is actually foreshadowing for the movie Robowar. Think about it for a second: The movie robowar had reb brown fighting against a superstrong robot, powered by the brain of his buddy that was injured in Viet Nam!! And In CAGE, we have a movie where Reb Brown was proven to be in Vietnam, AND HIS BUDDY was injured in Nam! It fits together perfectly (read: not really)!!
Well, okay. But wouldn’t it be Kick Ass if all of the Reb Brown movies were connected by some loose continuity? I honestly think it could be pulled off.
That would almost Work if it wasn’t for the fact that Robowar came out before Cage
A prequel then?
Awesome as always Spoony. I noticed the slight challenge to Brad, via Pierre Kirby. This should be fun! Well done, sir!
This was fucking hilarious, that is all.
LOL’d at the the Machete part. Danny Trejo really did alot of movies, you’ll find him when you least espect.
Haha “Cool as Ice” poster in the background. Perhaps the only movie poster capable of rivaling Highlander 2′s.
Coming Soon: Pierre Kirby vs. Reb Brown the Ultimate Showdown
(that’s if Pierre can ever be found and wasn’t actually killed by South Pacific Pirates)
Lou Ferrigno and Reb Brown teaming up to beat up people in a cage.
That is the greatest idea for a movie since combining venomous reptiles, aeronautics, and Samuel L. Jackson.
with 2 minutes to spare Danny Trejo’s given recognition. That was close, man.
Hey look its that guy from Renegade.
i laughed hysterically at Molotov cocktail bit, this review displays exactly why i follow you
I was gonna write this in the Robowar review, but the comment part is like broken or something. The ‘unnamed’ female character credited as ‘Virgin’ in the credits is actually addressed by name once in the film. Her name is ‘Virginia’. Reb says it, but I don’t know where he found out about it lol
Oh no! Spoony, you must watch out! I just watched Linkara’s Doctor Who review and he is catching up to your Thunderdome jokes!
That beeping is probably an encoding error.
They were debugging some C code in the background. Reb was a programmer… Pfft hahahah
The Asian guy from Die Hard actually survives a movie? & also Danny Trejo is called Danny in this. He was called Trejo in Heat. The writer of a Michael Mann movie has as much originality as whoever wrote this. Turns out Brown History Month is educational
I admit I am a simple man, but that
gets me every time.
Ok, that was some pretty fucking awesome shit right there!
Yar. Hunter from my balls! We post again in 30 minutes.
Thanks Spoony! I was in need of a Reb fix.
Isn’t there an NES game called “Master Blaster”? Pretty sure it had nothing to do with arcades.
HULK SMASH! And cry…and uhhh likes wrestling?
Does anyone know the name of the theme song of the Rebraury intro?
Should be Guido & Maurizio De Angelis – Black Inferno (1983) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QS0QReEMj9Q
No I didn’t know that I just googled the lines since I was interested as well…
LMAO Hearing Lou Ferrigno say: “Motherfuckers!” was just… wierd…
And Al Leong… I’m not sure if he’ll ever escape that candy bar thieving. lol
Is it just me or the scene where he’s standing on the guy’s throat and you’re looking up at him does he look and sound like Kurt Russell?
The opening credits montage where Scott (Reb) nurses Billy (Lou) back to health at the hospital (complete with ultra cheesy ‘Don’t Let Go’ soundtrack) couldn’t be any more homoerotic if it tried….I literally laughed my ass off when I first saw it. I’m surprised you skimmed past it so quickly in your review. Or maybe you were trying to erase it’s existence from your memory, in which case I don’t blame you, lol.
Lou eating= Daww moment. He’s so adorable. <3
Thumbs up! 2011 is a good year to be a Spoony fan
WOW! Reb Brown in a somewhat competent American action movie, never thought I’d see the day.
dmwdp, i kinda agree, except for the fact that the instant reb walks into a movie it becomes fucking AWESOME!!! and no, im not just siding with spoony. reb brown could honestly kick chuck norris’s ASS. fuck Chuck’s third first, reb brown could peel his skin off just by roaring in his general direction from 500 miles away.
I fully agree with you. No one could deny that Reb Brown IS awesome (that is to say ‘Awesome’ is defined by ‘Reb Brown’), I was actually talking about technical competence (i.e. cinematography, special effects).
ok, im serious. that part where spoony says “i don’t even know why i hired ju meng!” has got the be the hardest laugh i’ve gotten on this entire site, and ive seen nearly all of it. maybe its cause im hispanic, but holy hell that was fucking hilarious!!!!
Reb does another movie :)
Reb vs Bigfoot… That sounds awesome.
I LOVE you Spoony, you magnifecnt bastard. Your such a fanboy its cute and weird at the same time.
I am having trouble watching this vid and a few other ones on here. Whenever I click the link in the archive section it comes up saying something about some quicktime app needs installed but I was able to watch this when it was first posted and I’m still able to watch almost every other video on the site.
“Skills of a natural leader” Spoony? Wasn’t aware that natural leaders scream like a little bitch!
It was a joke.
Loren Avedon is a far more unsung action hero.
Oh my god, never do the pelvic thrust again!
The “ain’t gonna shoot a lady” chick reminded me of the singer from Twister’s Revenge.
Tiger Joe reminds me of Cherokee Jack from Red Zone Cuba. This movie makes me feel bad. REALLY bad. A mentally-disabled veteran who has a shaky grasp at best on why he is fighting these people is doing so for out entertainment. I feel…dirty.
Hey anyone else think that Diablo, the guy splatted on the fridge, looks kinda familiar? He’s been all over. He was even one of the Klingon gunners in Star Trek III but might be more memorable from the TV series Renegade. I so wish someone could get interviews from him on just how many shows he’s worked on.
Here is his IMDB page http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0725079/
I like to wrestle.
But I don’t like fighting.
Anybody else notice that one of the goombahs looks like the Cinema Snob?
did you not know. the sound in the bar is a dabo board
WAAAAIT A FUCKING SECOND!!!!!! is that fucking Trejo in the back at 13:00 minutes of the review AS A FIGURANT?
and we all forgot to mention this?
my respect for trejo just got raped. here and in the after life, and for the next generations to come!
WOW, that was the same intro as Tropic Thunder!
I laughed so hard I think I have a six pack now.
n.n Its almost febuary, & you know what that means!!!
I decided to get a hold of this movie, and it’s better than what Spoon here shows it to be. The relationship between the handicapped Billy and Scott is actually a pretty man-teary story.
did billy kill chang by breaking his neck with his thighs?
