The Ultimate Weapon (1997) from Tuna

This is not an especially good film, and I was very irritated but the lack of topless nudity from the credited actresses. The glass is half full, not half empty, as the butt exposure in garters and butt-floss thongs is worth the price of admission.  


My colleague, Spaz, told me "Hulk Hogan vehicle. The only nudity is provided by some no-name robo-hooter strippers, butt Cynthia Preston shows some major buns in a pole dance." As usual, Spaz had it exactly right.

The plot, not that it matters much, has the Hulkster as a career mercenary who is double-crossed, and does in the people who did it. The bad guys are not thrilled, and threaten him, his estranged daughter (Preston as a stripper that doesn't strip), his girlfriend, and probably his gold fish. In this particular bout, the Hulkster is still a good guy, and the good guys are supposed to win by pin. 

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 3.6 
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a C- to D+.
