Peter Fonda hires Reb and Super Fly’s Ron O’Neal to put down a tribal insurgency in a remote African nation. Will Reb get into the spirit of Black History month and stick up for his brother man?
No one, and I mean no one, screams like Reb Brown. It’s like he couldn’t decide if he was an 80’s metal frontman or an 80’s action star.
That actually makes me think, why no movies with Reb as an 80’s Metal frontman? XD
Because there can be only ONE Eric Adams (manowar) lol Spoony probably gets this post more than you but yeah lol
Damn. Now I wanna see Eric Adams one-handing a .50 Cal machinegun.
Okay internet, make that a .gif image.
*goes to pick up his balls from the floor*
I would watch this over Avatar anytime.
I would argue that the Avatar Rifftrax is worthwhile, but I can’t honestly say your decision’s unwise.
Oh, Cannon films.. how I loved and miss you.
But damn it, I’m going to have that Kenny Loggins song stuck in my head all evening. CURSE YOU!!!
I have to admit i heard “Pardue” and immediately thought of Mazes and Monsters. I burst out laughing during the reb ass shot too, awesome video.
Now I want to see Reb shoot Pierre Kirby in the nuts.
Holy shit at that ending. Amazing.
Another osm review.
Personally i dont get the title. “Fighters” implies a chance of defeat. When you’re talking about Reb Brown, defeat is the last thing that comes to mind. It should have been called Mercenary Destroyers or Mercenary Obliteraters
I also liked the fact that you didnt say Avatar in the last joke or else it would have been too blunt.
Love the ending joke. :)
Its not like it was a hard one to make. *coughalreadydoneplotcough*
Why do you own Avatar?
He doesn’t. Burton, on the other hand….
Same reason I do, Rifftrax.
Funny thing about being the only one of your friends with both a Blu-Ray player and an HDTV: suddenly you get movies as Christmas gifts that seem suspiciously like the selection of films your friends want to watch on your setup.
You know, I’m not gonna lie. If Reb Brown and Pierre Kirby were in Avatar, I may well have actually liked that movie. XD
Wait, you mean the guys slaughtering entire villages and a journalist were the bad guys? Whaaa?! Seriously though, Brown’s character had to be specifically told he was on the wrong side before he figured it out. He must have gotten more brain damage than Ferrigno in Cage.
HA, loved the shot at Avatar at the end!
And it’s a good thing I recently saw the Eegah episode of MST3K recently, so I can now finally appreciate the references to it. In fact, I even thought of Eegah the moment Kiel was mentioned. The only problem is, because I saw Eegah after stuff like the Bond films and “To Serve Man” on the Twilight Zone, I only CAN think of Eegah when I think of Kiel! To the point where I’m giving too much attention to it here rather than the actual movie…huh.
Oh, and Watch out for Snakes.
And it’s a good thing Spoony did the Robocop reference, or I’d be stuck all day trying to figure out where I’ve seen that man. I’m just that kind of person; when something familiar, yet not identified triggers the useless trivia center of my brain, it’s all I can think of until I solve it. Kind of like the Stock Scream from Cage 2 that was used in “Aahh Real Monsters” and Starcraft.
And all I can think of during the bathing scene is Schmitts Gay. I cheered! I just got a hell of a great laugh out of it. And of course, every time I see anything involving someone in a helicopter blowing up a bunch of stuff, I always think UHF. It’s just one of those jokes I never get bored of.
Man, I love the 80’s.
0:55- Somebody drew on Chucks face with lipstick.
1:30- I see two sultry women…or maybe a vase.
2:06- The true story of the Yangtze River…damn.
2:15- Holy Crap!! Was that the fertilizer barn?
2:25- Reb look so happy, like he just won the lotto.
3:42- Don’t let Wonder Woman or She-Hulk ever know that taste of and un-American penis.
5:29- These guys might as well wear road construction uniforms. Why bother with all that olive drab bullshit.
5:49- He should have hid the camera in his shirt.
6:01- Sassy bitch alert.
6:19- Right in the spine bone.
6:56- So does the hourly rate still apply to the travel time, or is this some sort of package deal?
7:42- They are so busy murdering and exploding for weeks on end that they don’t have the time to jump in the river until some hookers tell the to. Not once did any of these mercs feel like washing?
7:46- “Shut up bitch the waters cold.”
“Yeah bitch, I’m a grower, not a shower.”
8:30- He would have a better tan line if he would have lain out in his Yor shorts.
10:07- The the operator told me, “The explosion is coming from INSIDE THE JEEP!”
10:40- I’ve lit farts before, it’s not that manly.
11:39- Unlike we, who commit genocide against people our families have known for hundreds of years.
12:44- 2 grams, what’s the street value on that?
13:26- And hookers.
Oh man I’ve been waiting all week for this. Thank you Spoony for what you do.
WTB Burton PST
It felt like I was watching Dragon Ball Z there for a moment with the yelling and explosions.
Oh man poor Reb, he’s clearly the slowest action movie star there is. Even Arnold figured out he was being used in Predator far quicker than Reb managed in this, and even then he had to be lectured several times. Apparently the summary execution of unarmed women wasn’t enough for the big knuckle head to realise there might be an issue with his buddies.
Saying that, this was a funny review as always….I’m loving Brown Awareness Month.
…did…did you just compare a Reb Brown movie to Avatar? And somehow, made the Reb Brown movie look more compelling?
*Blue Screen Of Death*
(No but seriously, Avatar was dull to me.)
Rebuary is so awesome, the Earth has adjusted its orbit to make it the 13th month of the year and NOBODY CARES.
Also, this movie appears to be suffering from a severe case of missing white woman syndrome.I mean, good god, its at a ratio of 15:1 in just that one scene! Jeez guys, you think that’s enough!? Consult a physician already!
“LIKE A RUPTURED DUCK!”
… what does that MEAN?!
Anyway, a fine review, direct and to the point but still smile-inducing, and I especially love the part of this movie where he approaches a MOUNTED M60 and takes it OFF the mount so he can pose with it while firing. Even though there’s no way he’d hit anything doing that, ever, even if he was the freaking Punisher and surrounded by mafia goons instead of tribal shock troopers.
Taken from the wiki…
“During a practice run, Lawson scraped the bottom of his plane’s tail when he rotated the nose of the bomber too high before attaining takeoff speed. The following is from Lawson’s book Thirty Seconds over Tokyo (Random House pub. 1943). “One morning I came out to my plane and found that somebody had chalked the words ‘RUPTURED DUCK’ on the side of the fuselage. I grabbed Corporal Lovelace, a gunner I knew, and asked him to paint some sort of design on the ship. He’s a good caricaturist. Lovelace got out his stuff and painted a funny Donald Duck, with a head-set and the earphone cords all twisted around his head. Lovelace did a swell job in blue, yellow, white and red. Then he added something that gave all of us another laugh. Under Donald Duck he drew a couple of crossed crutches. The other boys now got busy with insignias.”
The origins of the name, “The Ruptured Duck” referred to a patch (later an Honorable Service Lapel Button) worn on the uniform of returning veterans, explained K.T. Budde-Jones, Pacific Aviation Museum director of education. “It meant they were being discharged and said, ‘I’m not AWOL, I’m allowed to wear this uniform until I get my civilian clothes.’ And of course everyone wanted one because it meant you were going home. The patch was of an eagle in a wreath, but everyone thought it looked like a duck, a ruptured duck.”
Although “The Ruptured Duck” became the most well-known of the Doolittle Raid aircraft because of Lawson’s book and a 1943 movie of the same name, seven other bombers carried distinctive nose art and individual aircraft names: “Whiskey Pete” (aircraft No. 3), “Green Hornet” (aircraft No. 6), “Whirling Dervish” (aircraft No. 9), “Hari Kari-er” (aircraft No. 11) “Fickle Finger” (aircraft No. 12) and “(The) Bat Out of Hell” (aircraft No. 16). Doolittle’s personal aircraft, S/N 40-2344, carried no special markings.”
I think the “walk like a ruptured duck” thing is referencing the guys going home, and how they don’t have to march any more….but I’m just guessing based on that Reb movie where a drill instructor is shouting it at a bunch of cadets.
… this… is why… it’s REALLY important to take a good step back BEFORE releasing a film about a culture you’ve learned next to nothing about…
That said… Reb Brown’s scream is objectively awesome. It’s a constant of the universe… like pi…
That wasn’t a mortar shell. The sheer manliness radiating off Reb as he went buck wild with a .50 cal actually caused the ground to explode in a ball of testosterone fueled flames.
See James Cameron? That is how Avatar should have been!
Uh, Spoony, that’s not a .50 caliber machine gun. Those generally aren’t man-portable. It’s an M60.
well when its being held by reb brown, who cares, he’ll still ruin your shit with it!
@twitter-221056731:disqus It’s an M240, so if you are going to be a know-it-all corrector, you should probably be right first.
I was totally thinking Peter Fonda was looking like Christopher Lambert as well. The 80’s seriously had the best action movies, I’ll take cheese over realism or seriousness any day. Does that Room shirt have anything to do with seeing Reb’s ass btw?
AHHHHHH!!! IT’S REB BROWN’S BARE ASS!!!! UGGGGGH!!!!!!!
Sorry Dr. Insano but “My eyes! The goggles they do nothing!” and like Spencer D. Bum says, “Thank God this is not on Blu-ray!”
Lol at the end. I C WAT U DID THAR.
Rebruary Rulez! I hope you get to do something special with the Reb himself.
So it’s a spiritual prequel to Red Scorpion?
I loved tha last “stealth” joke. Also, Reb Brown just DESTROYED the Testosteron-o-meter.
Best ending ever. Fuck Avatar. Reb Brown would own all those blue furrys.
My god the 1980s ruled!
Still would rather watch this than Avatar, this at least looks fun :D
you rather watch a girly guy with shiney jelly fish swarm him instead of reb brown on a machine gun going bat shit insane?
shame on you.
He said he’d rather watch this than Avatar…meaning Mercenary Fighters.
oh…must have mis read…or he edited!
i’m watching you!
Dude I love UHF!
“…I mean, where the hell else are you going to see a movie like this?”
Dances with Wolves, Pocahontas…and yeah, Avatar. But I’m sure theres more.
Robocop in Africa:
Holy shit! Spoony isn’t lying when he says the scene of Reb going all ape shit with the explosion in the background while he’s firing the M60 is the most bad ass thing ever put on film! Why the fuck hasn’t Reb been asked to be in the Expendables sequel yet?
Also, the “Person fights for army oppressing the natives only for said person to fall in love with the natives culture and turns on the army he was sent to help” thing isn’t anything new. It is one of the most laziest Hollywood writing cliches in history. Shit, Spoony and Miles wrote off tons of other films during the Avatar review. (And I totally figured out he was making a vague reference to Avatar at the end of this review)
Aww, not a single ”Beyond Thunderdome” joke in this episode. I was really hoping (and waiting) for one :P.
You just can’t get beyond Thunderdome can you? I’ve never been able to get over Macho Grande…..maybe we can help each other?
Hey, you got do the Macho Grande joke after all. That’s cool, man.
I feel like I’ve got to try and crack that joke whenever I can now…..it’s a sickness.
For one moment I thought you weren’t gonna recognize Robert DoQui ^^
hehe I see what you did there Spoony at the end.
13:50 I see what you did there mr. Spoony.
Argh! My eyes! Spoony, have you no sense of decency? Even the Critic was kind enough to put a deer over Tommy’s ass! “Mr. Christian?” Couldn’t find any clips from Mutiny on the Bounty?
I think he tried, but Reb’s ass was all like “Fuck this shit….no-one censors my manly awesomness!!” and the black bar wouldn’t take.
How about an American flag? It worked for Larry Flynt!
are you telling me that James Cameron stole the plot of this movie for his. damn thats just sad.
several films. Dances With Wolves, Red Scorpion, Pocahontas, That Tom Cruise Samurai movie no one saw, and yes Avatar.
I just thought he ripped the whole thing off from the game Albion.
See for yourself.
Hey, I saw that Tom Cruise movie, and it was actually not bad. One of 3 Cruise movies that continues to be watchable.
I’d say the “Brainless , Manliest moment ever filmed” would make me grow chest hair magically if I didn’t already have some , but my balls almost burst out of my nut sack from sheer machoness , though. T_T
and nice end joke , didn’t get it until post credits , that’s where I start laughing like DBZ Abridged’s Mr Popo ! XD
Was that Richard “Shaft” Roundtree playing evil African general guy? ….just checked IMDB it wasn’t. My Mistake.
heres the thing, this reb brown movie didnt suck ass, avatar did.
By the way, Spoony, the machine gun Reb picks up isn’t a .50 cal. It looks more like a M60. A real .50 cal would have taken Rebs arms off, prop gun or not.
Shinkasa…. yeah, right. An anagram for Kinshasa. And that’s how you invent new countries, folks.
Ah top gun soundtrack during the bathing scene. So appropriate. XD
And I don’t know what your problem is spoony. That is actually a pretty nice ass. ;p
12:16 – what movie is that? o_O
UHF was a surprisingly good movie.
UHF is a classic!
Robocop did actually have a brief stint in an African warzone in Marvel’s comic series, from what I recall.
Sick as a dog (chest infection, ear infection), spoony videos make me feel better. Thank you spoonyone!
That’s clearly not a .50 cal, that would be almost as big as he is. It looks more like a Minimi.
Looked like an M60 to me.
It’s actually an M240, and it shoots 7.62 NATO rounds, not .50 cal.
Is that map on the right in the briefing room showing a woman’s silhouette? Oo
I’m pretty sure you’ve seen it Spoony but if not you gotta check out Bruno Mattai’s Rats, it’s incredible for riffing and the twist ending is one of the most insane things I’ve ever seen on film.
You wouldn’t hurt a fly, would you Glen?
I just might, but why do you ask ?
I’ve been looking forward to when Cinema Snob talks about Rats on his Bruno Mattei Show. I think he said Rats was one of his favorite Bruno movies.
That’s really exciting I like the Snob as well thanks for the update
The African country’s flag seems to be Mali’s but with a big black star glued on. Genius.
yeah James Cameron didn’t start a movie with an airplane landing on a bus, and hell at least Reb Brown didn’t pretend to be a negotiator to get with a cat person.
Reb Brown wouldn’t need the Na’Vi or Enya’s help to defeat Quaritch.
He would just pick a machine gun and several rounds of ammo and go to town on Quaritch and his men.
if reb brown was in Avatar…the navi would have been dead long before the Quaritch did his famous “dont give a fuck” coffe drink.
Great job on this one Spoony. I guess you’re not a fan of CFNM ala the river scene.
I like the AVATAR similarities at the end that you mentionedXD
Reb Brown, Superfly, AND Shaft? I need to see this movie!
I guess there was no way to work in an MST3K Devil Doll ‘Great Vorelli” reference in this.
Reb Brown’s Avatar
Dammit Spoony! We need more Reb Brown! Give it to us or suffer in the Blagh Hole!
Oh god please don’t tell me you bought the Avatar DVD.
Maybe it was a donation from a fan who wanted to see a review of a really really bad movie.
thats a good idea, he should review it, his vlog with his bro was funny, but if he REALLY broke it down and got insano to explain why all the science sucks, we’d have the funniest review on earth.
I actually like that idea.
Search Red Letter Media on Youtube for a pretty good review along those lines.
There was science in Avatar? I thought it was ALL magic by the way things decided to randomly work or not work.
“This area prevents any scientific communication signals from getting through… for some reason.”
“Then how does my link up to the Avatar body still work there?”
“Uh…………………. Oh look! A blue cat with tits! Go fuck it!”
At 5:23 it looks like he’s using one of those fancy “Twist-off cap” grenades…
at the 5 minute mark
I have nothing funny to say about this movie….it was made during the “collapse” period of Golan and Globus’ control of Cannon (that 1987 Superman movie sucked up too much of their cash.) A year after “Mercenary Fighters” was made, Cannon was taken over by Pathe Films (which owned MGM), which is why you can get the Michael Dudikoff vehicle “American Ninja” on MGM video.
For info on what it was like to work at Cannon’s Hollywood office check out:
Nice shout to the tribal-soldier storyline.
Other Movies apart from Avatar and Mercernary Fighters have done this, Dances with wolves and to a lesser extent Pocahontas.
The original story this particular plot thread is based on is actually the biblical story of Moses Vs Rameses. The child of the pharoah turns and becomes sympathetic to the plight of the Israelites.
Original? Hardly. Entertaining? Definitely, it hits four really good classic plot lines. The Hero’s growth as a character, The overcoming of a physical obstacle, the overcoming of a mental obstacle and the triumph of the underdog in the face of great adversity.
It’s formulaic, it has plenty of oppurtunities for big emotional scenes, fits nicely into a three act structure and it strikes a subconscious tone with a western audience.
*The more you know*
while i agree, i have to say. it really wont matter if every year a movie with that plot comes out.
quite frankly i like the apocalypse now/heart of darkness type of story better, its similar but nearly the same, its more or less showing the horrors, which i think is more effective than the dances with wolves story line.
sooooooo according to your description at the end of the movie Mercenary Fighter = James Cameron’s AVATAR?
no more like Mercenary Fighter = Ferngully
James Cameron’s Avatar (aka Dances with Smurfs)
The Last Samurai
Dances with Wolves (aka White Guy Learns to Hate the White Man Too)
And even technically The Mighty Ducks… All use this same theme.
(Oh you think I am kidding? This is the same plot used in the Mighty Ducks. Rich Guy and former member of the “evil team” coaches the poor Ducks, and is inspired by their courage to eventually embrace them and lead them to victory over his own former team… Yeah… Same damn movie but with less explosions and a distinct lack of Reb Brown… Which of course is an offense punishable by death.)
Oh christ I looked at his ass!! Why did I look!?
Did you go temporarily blind too?
Sort of, hahaha
Beware of the flashbacks though!
You must have not seen Tommy Wiseau’s ass yet, have you? Been blind a long time.
hahah! I have and I’ve recovered now I’m gonna have to go through therapy again. hahahha
I must admit that my respect for Spoony lowered immensely with that Avatar jab at the end. Oh well.
I didn’t really see it as a jab, I saw it more as a parallel. Two great movies with essentially the same story plot, except one has blue cat people and the other has Reb Brown. Both = awesome!
I can see where you’re coming from, but given Spoony’s feelings toward Avatar based on his Vblog I got the distinct impression it was indeed a jab rather than a mere parallel. But I suppose only Spoony himself knows which it is.
I know Spoony doesn’t care for Avatar, but as a fan of the movie I could care less. The ending of this review amused me, only because it reaffirmed my belief that a movie doesn’t have to be 100% original to be enjoyable, which Avatar clearly falls into.
Which is all well and good. Definitely a sentiment I can get behind, although I’m more apt to believe it’s impossible to be 100% original in the first place. I, personally, just find jabs at Avatar’s lack of originality to be in and of itself unoriginal and therefore hypocritical, hence my lowered respect.
Okay, I get you’re saying, and I agree.
Meh, it’s a joke imo. Who really cares?
If one likes a movie that another doesn’t, should it really matter that much? Each to their own I say!
I don’t believe I ever said I had a problem with him not liking Avatar, good sir.
and both are ripping off a far superior movie
damn spoony , have you lost some weight ???
Side-effect of dying.
WTF??? He is not dying
Nononono! Spoony was “killed” but was brought back as a Black Lantern. Then brought back by Linkara only to be killed again by MechaLinkara as a BL. Then, brought back again when he took off the BL ring.
Thank you for the Robocop reference, spoony. I was hoping you spotted that haha
The hit at Avatar was really great too haha
How I wish there was a Reb Brown DVD boxset with all these awesome movies in.
Doesn’t bliptv have a policy against nudity in their videos?
If so, how can Spoony show Reb Brown’s naked ass and get away with it?
This was so fun to watch! And the ending was so awesome. Avatar! Reb Brown! God I fucking love them both!
Ahhhh, can’t unsee Reb Brown’s ass! I am going to be scarred for life now. XD
What you did thar…. I see it.
Another great review! Coulda gone my whole life without seeing Reb’s ass though…
Yes, the only thing Avatar was missing is Reb Brown’s naked ass in 3D on a huge IMAX screen. “I see you…r junk, Reb Broown.”
I love the last starfighter poster in the back. My Brother has the same one. I hope he reviews the movie some day.
You have the best name ever.
He likes that movie. It’s doubtful he will. Sure, he reviews “awesome” movies, but at least those are bad in several ways that lend itself to a review like this…and it’s kind of a lie when he says he likes those particular movies.
The worst part of this review is that it suggests you actually own a copy of Avatar.
Playin’ wit’ the boys!
Just like the Sifer/Anikin comparison from the FF8 review before, I instantly thought of Avatar as the plot was being described at the end, and then to have Burton holding a copy of the movie was just the icing on the cake.
haha. Brilliant review. It needed less naked guy, though
now THAT is a proper reb brown movie. awesome work spoony, loved the UHF clip too.
one thing, that should have been “dances with wolves” at the end, since thats the movie avatar is ripping off. or maybe thats the joke… i dunno.
P.S. avatar sucks, people. go find some good movie to defend instead of that tripe
But…it’s just a dam? It’s not even worth hiring imported American Mercs! Just use the regular old mercs you have!
They can’t…The press.
Where’s the last Rebruary video? There’s only a few hours til March & the end of Brown History Month at which point you’re cutting into Gary Daniels time. Garch will be truly honoured, got dammit!!
OMG naked Reb Brown. Did you vomit out of awesomeness or disgust?
I think Reb willed that explosion behind him into existance on the scene where he takes the .50 cal machine gun and starts shooting with one hand…
who agrees that spoony should do a review of avatar were he totally slams it, and dr. insano can point out all the scientific inaccuracies (well not ALL of them, we dont want a year long review)
Likely been asked before, but I have to wonder 1) if Reb Brown knows about these reviews and, 2) what’s his reaction to them. I mean if he and Doug ever met each other on the street would there be handshakes, hugs or black eyes.
Which would likely be Spoony’s. Just saying.
woo-hoo! Awesome use of a UHF clip!
(sigh) spoony….you got me worried
Great job as always!
Have you ever thought about recording/enconding your stuff in HD? I know that most of the stuff you review isn’t available in HD and I really don’t know how cutting and encoding a video that is a mixture of you in HD and the (often times really shitty) SD stuff would work out, but I really would like it.
Anyways. You’re doing a great job and I’l love your work be it SD or HD!
You make me sad that it’s March.
I don’t know Spoony I think this film kinda ruined Reb Brown for me with him just sitting there while a bunch of innocent black women get slaughtered by a firing squad of UZI weilding bad guys, while he jumps up to save one, ONE white woman.
I know that it’s a film and normally war stuff like that doesnt bother me but that… that is just wrong and I was just tempted to shut off the review right then and there because of it,
truth be told though if it was just a bunch of the native soldiers it instead of women it wouldnt have bothered me at all.
The African country trying to industrialize by building a dam for power is probably inspired by the real history of Ghana under Kwame Nkrumah who in the 1960’s was lent tons of money from Western aid programs to build a hydroelectric dam for the same reason.
um…did anyone see this twitter update?!
“New videos from me are going to be delayed indefinitely. I don’t know when I’ll be able to focus on work or feel like being on-camera.”
….thats spoony’s twitter…. D:
I did. These are dark times for Spoony and his followers. Dark times indeed.
This is actually very upsetting, not only am I worried about Spoony but he was also working on a project I’ve wanted to see for a long time, FF10-2. Please feel better soon Spoony, hope it’s nothing serious.
him and scarlet had a falling out.
it would’ve been a complete reb brown movie to me if they gave him the chance to tell the natives about Disneyland before the final battle.
Isn’t that the scene from Psycho you have a still of?
So what happened to that “Last Flight to Hell” review?
He and scarlet had a falling out and they broke up, hence the indefintitely twiter, it’ll probably be about another week or so before he posts any videos.
How do you know they broke up? I tried looking into it.
thats a damn shame too, i feel bad for spoony, i hope they make up.
So now we know. James Cameron stole from Reb Brown..
Ah. The ending. Subtile.
Reb Brown, he is a manferno!
Spoons – you’re the best – and I hope somehow everything works out for you and those in your life.
oh ho ho
I c wat u did there
Avatar in the Background
Oh my… The sight of Reb’s buttocks was GLORIOUS, to say the very fucking least! Yummy! :D~~~~
Oh and about your situation Spoony, hang in there! I wish I had some profound word of wisdom for you but I don’t. All I can say is good luck and come back to us soon!
another reb classic
someone have see the chuck norris movie Delta Force?
The end-moment reveal on “where else are you gonna find” was one of the best jokes in the whole thing…because it’s SO TRUE -XD
Hah great review!
The part where Reb is standing on the jeep and shooting the gigantic machinegun with one arm:
YOR YOR YOR! HE’S THE MAN!!
I can’t believe how Avatar copies this movie. I mean really I know other movies have but c’mon. I mean the scene with Reb on the ground with the jeep practically on top of him is almost exactly the same thing that happend in Avatar.
Just so you know it wasn’t a 50cal he was man handling. BTW I have done that. Broke my arm on a mission so I I had fired my SAW with one hand.
Just so you know. In the manly scene that is not a 50cal. Also I have done that. Broke my arm during a mission and one handed my SAW.
The setup actually kind of reminds me of the Three Gorges Dam controversy.
Think about that. Communist China didn’t send in foreign mercenaries to kill everyone who was opposed the dam. How fucking evil are the guys in this movie?
wow this site hasn’t had new videos in ages something happen to Noah?
Classic Reb. Good review.
I have just realised something incredibly disturbing: this movie was made two years BEFORE Dances With Wolves…
… Did… did… did Kevin Costner rip off the plot from a Reb Brown 80s action movie? Because those aren’t SUPPOSED to have any plot! They’re 80s action movies! They’re about the goddamn bloody action! You’re not supposed to use them as the basis for a semi-valid analysis of racism and cultural dissonance!
James Cameron, you ripped off either a Reb Brown movie, or a movie that possibly ripped off of a Reb Brown movie. Now how much did you say Avatar cost?
1: It’s a….It’s a….REBGASAM AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
and 2: Wow that’s funny Avatar ripped off a reb brown movie and didn’t even catch a single nanodrop of the awesomeness from it
That makes, what, seventeen movies made in the past 20 years that Avatar is a complete plot clone of?
The others of course weren´t complete Plotclones at all…
The Plot “Soldier goes to fight locals, meets locals, falls in love with girl, fights FOR locals” is in noway a generic plot used since fucking forever….
Remember that Star Wars also follows one of the simplest Plotstructures ever.
So many things to love about this review, but I love the shot at Avatar because sometimes I feel like I’m the only one who noticed that movie features the most cliched story in cinema history. So cliche, that it was covered over and over again by bad 1980s B movies.
Also, Reb Brown is so fucking cool. I can never watch Space Mutiny the same way again.
It’s an M240.
nope it’s an M60
Nope, you are both wrong. It´s an FN MAG. The M240 would have had a Heatshield over the barrel, and the M60 is an entirely different gun…
Uh, Chris, that’s not an M60, it’s an M240.
holy shit! when Reb picks up that machine gun and fires it in front of explosions, now THAT is the epitome of live action Metal Slug! I secretly wish Spoony woould have spliced in the auido clip of the aunouncer saying “Heavy Machine Gun”
first, jakoga. check the exact pronunciation. i dont hold it against you, though, as Reb isnt exactly audiobook worthy. second, i always found the line “jam captain america down their throats” to just sound incredibly gay. anyone else agree?
Oh my god, James Cameron ripped off a Reb Brown movie.
It’s not a rip off. It’s just an old story. See “The Last Samurai” and “Dances with Wolves”.
After finding that there is no clips on Google Images of Reb One-arming the .50 cal, I decided to use my photo editing skills to extract the image from your own video just for you. xD I mean, I’m sure you could have done it yourself, but in case you didn’t… here you go :3 Enjoy. (I waited for the moment of the explosion in the back ground for sheer ass-kicking awesomeness.)
Actually, what’s really funny….this movie rips off Red Scorpion with Dolph Lundgren. Russian Spetznaz guy fights on the side of the Russians in some African country to take it over…learns that what they are doing is wrong, and fights for the rebels in the end.
Which means Avatar ripped off a DOLPH LUNDGREN movie.
Avatar ripped off EVERYTHING.
Also, if you check out Reb Brown on IMDB. He’s in a movie that’s in post production called Night Claws with him and FRANK STALLONE. Apparently about a killer Bigfoot or something.
LOVED the dig at Avatar! Man that movie SUCKED!
Someone needs to track down James Cameron’s personal email address so we can all send him links to this video en masse.
Women: the other white meat.
Where else you gonna see a movie like this? Dances with Wolves?
Dances with Wolves
The Last Samurai
Point Break is slightly like that.
As I mentioned before, Red Scorpion (in a way)
i know its a bit late, but did anyone else notice that the apparently fictional Shinkasa in central Africa is probably just the script writers fiddling around with the city Kinshasa actually located in central Africa?
lol, ever since i saw space mutiny i could never stop laughing at reb brown’s epic yells.
they raped them with bayonets and then mutilated them? Wouldn’t the bayonets start the mutilation process already?
Did anyone else notice that the shield was the exact copy of the flag of Ghana? Central Africa, yeah right.
Was that “manly action scene” what Tropic Thunder was trying to mimic at the beginning of the movie?
So The last Samurai is just a carbon copy of Mercenary Fighters? Makes sense..
You know…the UN has VERY harsh laws against Genocide now-a-days…this NEVER would have happened after the 90’s…
The reason we like to pick on Avatar is that the movie was a ‘dream project’, in the making for over a decade, and it had a completely predictable and bland plot with 1 dimensional characters that didn’t really do anything of note to advance cinema in any way outside of motion capture effects being slightly advanced past what was done in LOTRs.
It’s just one of those movies that is so incredibly successful and you can’t really figure out why it would be over other films that are just as good if not better.
Only Reb Brown can scream like a T Rex and carry a deep romantic role simultaneously, mans a genius.
