From acclaimed stunt man and action director Craig R. Baxley (Action Jackson, I Come In Peace) comes the acting debut of 1980s football star Brian Bosworth, who looks like as if Vanilla Ice snorted growth hormones.
There is a long, proud history in the U.S. of trying to make American football players movie stars. However for every Carl Weathers, Jim Brown and dare we say it, O.J. Simpson, that make it big, there is a Howie Long (Firestorm) and a Brian Bosworth that just don’t make the cut.
For his big-screen debut, Bosworth chose Stone Cold – a film that tries to blend every ‘big’ action film of the time (Cobra! Road House! Die Hard!) into one action spectacular!
Prepare yourself for terrible one-liners, gratuitous levels of unnecessary nudity, glorious mullets, explosions a-plenty, stunning levels of defenestration, punch-ups in biker bars and Lance Henriksen (The Terminator, Aliens, Hard Target) chewing on all the scenery!
Brian Bosworth stars as an undercover cop who infiltrates a ruthless biker gang in this action feature. After a member of the notorious white supremacist ‘Brotherhood’ gang murders a vicar in Mississippi, Alabama cop Joe Huff (Bosworth) is blackmailed into going undercover to investigate. When he is initiated into the gang, he learns of leader Chains Cooper (Lance Henriksen)’s plan to spring one of their own, who is standing trial for murder, free and assassinate the new state governor at the same time. Will he be able to find a way to stop the gang?
This film and event is certified ’18’. No one younger than 18 will be admitted to the event.
In order to make the event as accessible to as many people as possible, the main feature will be subtitled.
When: 8.00pm (doors open: 7.30pm), Thursday 26th January 2023.
Location: Bristol Improv Theatre, 50 St Paul’s Rd, Bristol BS8 1LP, UK
All tickets : £5 (All profits will go to Help Bristol’s Homeless)
“Head villain Lance Henriksen steals the show in this… offers some good stunt work, but tells us little about the outlaw biker culture it depicts.” – Fulvue Drive-In
“Offers a gun battle in a courthouse more violent than any engagement fought in the Persian Gulf and producing a larger body count.” – Baltimore Sun
“Not pretending to be anything other than a mindless action flick, the film features decent stunts, lots of explosions, meaty-fisted throw-downs, and senseless violence.” – Mike Massie
