I got this film on video some time ago from a charity shop, cost me twenty pence, and was worth every bit!!
Stalone is awesome in this movie, his attempt to make a rocky but not rocky film is pure genius
My dad used to always beat me in arm wrestles as a kid, as he was much stronger than me, but now I know where his special technique comes from.
OVER THE TOP, OVER THE TOP!

This is one of my all-time favorite cable movies. Had no idea there was a line of action figures. I couldn't even find them on ebay! Sadly, Grizzly doesn't come with a F.U.B.A.R shirt and all of the corporate advertising is omitted, but they do come with Real Arm Wrestling Action!

I was waiting for this review after I read the one on "Cobra". Stallone could make a film about ballroom dancing and it would be badass.

Consider this comment an official request for the AWESOME/shark t-shirt.
Mar 14th, 2008, 11:55 AM
I want that Awesome/Shark shirt so bad! I'd rip someone's shittin' arm for one! OVER THE TOP!!!
Mar 14th, 2008, 01:22 PM
Hahahaha, over the topless.
Mar 14th, 2008, 01:25 PM
Brilliant as usual, RoG
I want to be the third official request for an Awesome shark shirt!
Mar 14th, 2008, 02:27 PM
John Grizzly is my new hero. This guy needs his own movie! When I grow up I want to be John Grizzly!

SEVEN FOULS IN ONE MATCH! WHO EVER HEARD OF SUCH A THING?
Mar 14th, 2008, 08:25 PM
by god, this is one of the most awesome films ever. too bad he's old slurring weirdo now that sylvester stallone...
Mar 14th, 2008, 08:43 PM
can a guy who's lost so much come back to win it all?
Tears - tears are running down my face that's so beautiful. Rough, arm-wrestling MAN tears. Now excuse me whilst I get myself a tissue all on my own and get back and finish reading this review. I must also add that it's amazing what high res, widescreen will do to pretty much any movie - makes even Over The Top look like cinematic gold. Awesome job with the screenies RoG. :)
Mar 14th, 2008, 09:24 PM
Great review RoG. Now I need to hunt down a copy of the DVD that has this and Demolition Man on it. Two great tastes that taste great together!
Mar 15th, 2008, 12:43 AM
Excellent, finally another one of the longer movie reviews. And it was a good one, top-quality stuff, great work -RoG-.
Mar 15th, 2008, 08:00 AM
This movie title was translated Halcon (Hawk) in my country, Over the Top. lol, Great review as usual Rog
Mar 15th, 2008, 12:08 PM
Mike Hawk, lol.
This movie dosen't look all that bad. I might have to find it.
Mar 15th, 2008, 01:27 PM
Awesome/Shark shirt FTW!
This movie is a fabulous bit of cheese. MANLY-SMELLING CHEESE.
Mar 15th, 2008, 11:19 PM
I remember seeing this movie when I was about 14 years old. My mom was very sick, and I was in the hospital waiting room when this movie came on. I watched the whole damn thing, and though it sounds blissfully retarded in retrospect, when I saw it, I thought it was the most soul-touching, beautifully-done movie I had ever seen up until that point.
Mar 16th, 2008, 01:40 AM
If you want that tissue, you gotta take it. You hear me? The world meets nobody halfway. Now it's time to get that tissue for yourself so you can dry your eyes on your own. If you don't dry your eyes, you're gonna be sorry, you're gonna regret it your whole life. I know you can do it. Will you do it for me? Come on, let's get 'em!..... pure genius RoG

I was in a double elimination tournament once (not arm wrestling, needless to say) and in the finals that rule went to the wayside, so it might not be a continuity error.
Mar 16th, 2008, 05:30 PM
AND I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT FELT THAT WAY ABOUT MY ROBBERT LOGGIA.HE'S ALSO GOD-LIKE IN SCARFACE.FANTASTIC
Mar 17th, 2008, 01:21 AM
I haven't seen this movie in ages. Mostly because it gets me too damn emotional. No I'm going to have to seek it out. Damn you Rog, Damn Yooooooooou!!!
Anyway, yet another request for an "Awesome Shark" shirt.
Also, when can we expect a review of Over the Topless?
Mar 17th, 2008, 05:57 AM
Awesome Shark shirts, please.
Mar 17th, 2008, 07:43 AM
I watched this cus of the rifftrax. The part where they interview wrestlers like it's a documentary or TV spot is fucking hilarious.
The bad music makes it almost unwatchable, though. "CUZ IN THIS CUNTRYYYY..."
Mar 18th, 2008, 04:23 AM
I too would like to request an AWESOME t-shirt.
I would wear it with pride in the office.
i.e. 'Alfredo made mad, massionate love to Gloria in the alley beside the disco'
Mar 19th, 2008, 04:02 AM
You should really check out Mike Nelson's RiffTrax for this flick. It makes watching it a breeze!
Mar 19th, 2008, 04:40 AM
Please for the love of God, review over the topless!
Mar 19th, 2008, 02:35 PM
The image for this on the front page reminded me of Fist of the North Star

great flick...not really, I just like it when that d00d drinks motor oil and eats a whole cigar
Mar 19th, 2008, 11:39 PM
RoG, that isn't just Cutler's main security guard that gets pushed through the door, it is the great Terry Funk. In addition to playing a goon in Roadhouse, he is one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. If you want to see something crazy, watch the King of the Death Match between he and Mick Foley (WWE's Mankind). It's a truly brutal barbed wire match complete with a ring rigged with explosives.
Mar 21st, 2008, 11:16 PM
'nother awesome review -RoG-, there were so many examples of awesome, there is no one point of awesome; it is simply awesome. One big, awesome, cigar eatin', shittin' ore of awesome.

Grizzly has one of the best beards ever.
That is all.
Mar 24th, 2008, 11:01 PM
Um. I like that part from "The Fly" when they're arm wrestling and
that guy's arm, like, rips off.
Mar 27th, 2008, 02:19 PM
John Grizzly was undoubtedly my favorite part.. I literally laughed so hard reading that
Apr 3rd, 2008, 03:34 PM
john Grizzly vs Hacksaw Jim Duggan the ultimate fight
Apr 11th, 2008, 12:38 PM
Great move and nice review sir.
Apr 19th, 2008, 05:38 PM
Love your movie reviews, RoG!! I think it'd be cool if you were to do one on "Fright Night" sometime. One of the greatest vampire movies of the 80's!
Apr 25th, 2008, 01:35 AM
nice selection for a review
May 2nd, 2008, 05:37 PM
I need the awesome shirt...on a side note, my friends Grandpa (or uncle I cant remember) had a hat with no company lable, no tag, and no other possible way of tracing it to its origin, and the hat had one word on the front of it: AWESOME
Jun 25th, 2008, 06:11 AM
"Over The Top. This isn't just another mindless action movie... no, no, no! This is a movie with a message. A movie with gumption. A movie with raw emotion. A movie with HEART!"
Yes.. yes it is.
Oct 19th, 2008, 02:27 PM
The funniest thing about this movie is the fact that Terry Funk played the guy who gets shoved through the window in Cutler's suite.

"Cause we gotta little ol' convoy, rockin' through the night...Yeah we gotta little ol' convoy, ain't she a beautiful sight?"
