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.

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!


Colonel Flagg Mar 14th, 2008 11:02 AM

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.

Mormon_Norman Mar 14th, 2008 11:40 AM

Consider this comment an official request for the AWESOME/shark t-shirt.

Kirbykid 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!!!

Fufuless Mar 14th, 2008 01:22 PM

Hahahaha, over the topless.

Gourry Mar 14th, 2008 01:25 PM

Brilliant as usual, RoG

I want to be the third official request for an Awesome shark shirt!

Tom Foolery 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!

Dungeonbrownies 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...

Ferrit 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. :)

Exeter 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!

Relaxing Dragon 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-.

ElPila666 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

Angryhydralisk Mar 15th, 2008 12:08 PM

Mike Hawk, lol.

This movie dosen't look all that bad. I might have to find it.

thecatillaccat Mar 15th, 2008 01:27 PM

Awesome/Shark shirt FTW!
This movie is a fabulous bit of cheese. MANLY-SMELLING CHEESE.

Jaimas 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.

CaTlaloc 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

neoboman Mar 16th, 2008 11:12 AM

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.

STUD_BEANER_69 Mar 16th, 2008 05:30 PM


Terrible-D 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?

Nick Mar 17th, 2008 05:57 AM

Awesome Shark shirts, please.

incognit000 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..."

Hugh Jerection 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.

p.s. man-passion.....massion?
i.e. 'Alfredo made mad, massionate love to Gloria in the alley beside the disco'

MrTorso Mar 19th, 2008 04:02 AM

You should really check out Mike Nelson's RiffTrax for this flick. It makes watching it a breeze!

Captain PirateFace Mar 19th, 2008 04:40 AM

Please for the love of God, review over the topless!

BurntToShreds Mar 19th, 2008 02:35 PM

The image for this on the front page reminded me of Fist of the North Star

DJ Zelda sword Mar 19th, 2008 07:32 PM

great flick...not really, I just like it when that d00d drinks motor oil and eats a whole cigar

mdclone 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.

Count Mek 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.

Bazo Mar 22nd, 2008 02:57 PM

Over the Top - The Music Video

Nktalloth Mar 23rd, 2008 09:46 PM

Grizzly has one of the best beards ever.

That is all.

mmm_braaains 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.


Furry_Fan Mar 27th, 2008 02:19 PM

John Grizzly was undoubtedly my favorite part.. I literally laughed so hard reading that

Flashman Apr 3rd, 2008 03:34 PM

john Grizzly vs Hacksaw Jim Duggan the ultimate fight

strangejosh Apr 11th, 2008 12:38 PM

Great move and nice review sir.

Mikey669 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!

stevetothepast Apr 25th, 2008 01:35 AM

nice selection for a review

Mental Pooperscooper 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

resident-adam 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.

yooperdude77 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.

Akktri Feb 21st, 2009 07:08 PM

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

Demi Moore was a cute teenaged boy!
