Rebruary – Mercenary Fighters

The Spoony One | Feb 25 2011 | more notation(s) | 

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

      I would argue that the Avatar Rifftrax is worthwhile, but I can’t honestly say your decision’s unwise.

    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.

    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.

    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.”

    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.

    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.”[1]

      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.”[2]

      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.

    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)

    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.

    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.

      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!

      • http://www.facebook.com/lordsimen Josh Langland

        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.

        • http://www.mandys-realm.com Mandy

          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.

          • http://www.facebook.com/lordsimen Josh Langland

            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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

      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.
