Stone Cold is a 1991 action movie based around a biker gang out to assassinate the governor and free one of their members who is on trial for murder. It's was notable in that it stared 80's football star Brian Bosworth, otherwise known as "The Boz".

[edit] Plot details

Bosworth plays Joe Huff, an Alabama cop with a rough and tumble attitude. Although under suspension for his seemingly deviant police ethics, Huff single-handedly stops a grocery store heist with the backend of a shotgun and a can of beans and all this within the first ten minutes of the movie. Shortly after this episode, Huff is summoned by police chief Agent Cunningham, whom he meets in a vacant underground parking lot. Cunningham proceeds to blackmail Huff into going undercover, threating Huff with enlogating his three week suspension to six months without pay. This undercover operation entails infilitrating "The Brotherhood" - a powerful Mississippi biker gang linked in the murder of government officials as well as dealing drugs with the mafia. Members include Greek, Mudfish, Six Pack, Gut, Tool, Nancy, and other aptly named scumbags. The Brotherhood is run by Chains (Henriksen) and Ice (Forsythe) as Commander and Sergeant at arms respectively. These guys are the epitome of tough-as-nails white trash, after Ice is killed he is sent out in the style of a Viking funeral. Joe Huff takes the undercover name John Stone (Stone Cold - get it?), joins the gang, after beating that dude, something that Gut thought he'd never see, hangs out at biker rallies and strip bars, gets into fights, and deals "P2P" in order to get deep into The Brotherhood. But the aforementioned criminal activities are merely fundraising efforts by the bikers to finance their master plan: To storm the state capitol of Mississippi with a "borrowed" military helicopter and a bunch of stolen weapons in order to break one of their brothers, Trouble Owens, out of court and crack District Attorney Whipperton, AKA "The Whip" who seeks to put Trouble to death.

[edit] Trivia

  • It has been stated that Bozworth received the 1992 Worst Actor Razzie for his performance in this film. This is incorrect. According to the official Razzies website, Bosworth was not even nominated in this category. In fact, he was only nominated for "worst new star", but lost to Vanilla Ice (Cool as Ice). Additionally, the year in contention is 1991, NOT 1992.
  • The song playing as Bosworth makes breakfast for his monitor lizard is "Welcome to the Real Life", written and performed by a then relatively unknown Sheryl Crow. This movie is about the only place where one can hear the song.
  • Though a cult favorite, the film had not received an official Region 1 DVD release for several years. One is now forthcoming from MGM, and is scheduled for June 12, 2007.
