    "Hard Times" starring Charles Bronson as a bare knuckle boxer during the depression with James Coburn as his manager/promoter/partner.

    Gotcha...cause I was thinking of that movie where he (Swayze) fought off a bunch of Commie Nazis or something with Charlie Sheen...that was Red Dawn, yes?

    I just bought Best of the Best over the weekend, based solely on the number of recommendations that it received on this thread. After watching it, all I can say is: How have I lived this long without this movie? IT HAS EVERYTHING! James Earl Jones, Kane Hodder, Mullets, a karate black belt who wears a cowboy hat everywhere (Travis Brick FTW!) and it makes TKD sparring look like the bloodiest, most rugged event ever. Also, I very nearly teared up at the ending (marking first time since Old Yeller that's happened to me) Thank you Bullshido!

    Dude...Best of the Best = Vision Quest for TKD'ers...I remember watching that movie before TKD tournaments and at TKD lock-in/sleepover things when I was and kid and thinking, "THIS IS THE ****!!!!"

    ...and whoa whoa...Kane Hodder?...isn't that the guy who played Jason in the Friday the 13th movies...?

    Yes it is. He's the big redneck guy in the bar at the beginning of the movie. You know, the one who sees his girlfriend dancing with Travis, throws a punch at Travis (aka the real star of the movie), misses, and smacks his own girl right in the face, causing Travis to respond "Way to go, Burt, don't take no lip off her!"

    Yep. Both got stabbed and died of infection. Rikidozan pissed off the yakuza who helped him set up a wrestling org. And Brody pissed of other wrestlers and was feared he would take over the WWC.

    As far as the Greco part, I don't really know. He was known for his finishing move, the "karate chop"

    I haven't seen that movie in ages. One of the better Swayze movies out there. Not I got to go find it again.

    Kane MFing Hodder?

    Vince:I totally missed the guy; not that I'd recognize him without the hockey mask. Best of the Best was pretty cool back in the nineties. I'm willing to say it has held up, just like the Perfect Weapon.

    DaChinkOfSteel: Originally, when it came out on cable back in '88 or '89, I mistook it for Red Dawn (John Milius, the director, also did Conan the Barbarian). Steel Dawn is pretty cool. It may not be a well made movie, but it is fun.

    I dunno, I think The Perfect Weapon is much better then Best of the Best.

    I'll hit the DVD shops around here and see if I can find this "Perfect Weapon" so I can judge for myself.
