Editorial Reviews

When world wrestling champion RIP THOMAS (Hulk Hogan) refuses to join a competing network, an evil executive creates a new program, "The Battle of the Tough Guys," where rules don't exist and men engage in an all-out brawl for money. After a murdering ex-convict by the name of ZEUS comes out on top as the toughest man, an ultimate title match with RIP is the TV network's best chance for big ratings. But when Rip refuses the challenge and his brother is roughed-up as a consequence, the world champion has no choice but to teach Zeus a lesson in a final No Holds Barred fight to the finish.

Here it is. The legendary "No Holds Barred". This is not a great movie - or even a good movie, but it's a classic. It represents a time and place for lots of golden era wrestling/Hulk Hogan fans out there. I remember how big this event was when it hit theaters - everyone was clamoring to see it! The tie-in on actual WWF programing with "Zeus" (Tiny Lester) was way ahead of it's time and is something we see a lot of in todays WWE programing. Be warned that this movie really sucks, but it's awesome too!

Over a decade before The Rock became a movie star in "Scorpion King", big Hulk Hogan got his chance to be a movie star. Who could forget his starring debut as WWF champion, Rip Thomas? Rip is the biggest star on cable and this is bad news for a competing network run by the evil Mr. Brell (played by Kurt Fuller), who demands Rip sign to his station. Rip won't do it though as he is signed with another company and "his word is his bond". When he is turned down, Brell looks elsewhere for talent and promotes a tough man contest where the winner gets a whole lot of money and a spot on his network. Enter Zeus, a convicted killing machine who takes out the competition.
While Zeus makes for huge ratings, Brell still isn't happy. He wants to promote a match between Zeus and Rip. He will stop at nothing to get it either as he hires a female assistant to seduce Rip and has Zeus hospitalize his little brother. This of course sends Rip on a rampage and results in the ultimate showdown between the two massive stars.
This movie is one of those "so corny, it's great" films and actually inspired several real-life matches between Hogan and actor Lister on WWF pay-per-view. Fuller as the scumbag network executive is just priceless and the scene where Hogan's Rip is getting pummeled while his brother watches from his wheelchair and sad music plays in the background is reason enough to pick up this forgotten gem. Hogan has never been better.

With the DVD format being around for over 16 years, I eventually gave up hope that "no Holds Barred" would EVER become available on the format. So, imagine my surprise when I get a 5am phone call from my best friend telling me that it was finally going to be released! I was 12 years old when this film was released in theaters, and a huge fan of wrestling at that.... So seeing the immortal Hulk Hogan on the big screen was indeed a pipe dream for me, and "No Holds Barred" fast became one of my all-time childhood favorites. After seeing the film again recently through adult eyes, I can say with confidence that it is undoubtedly cheesy....but in a good way. Pretty much what you'd expect from an 80's action/comedy. I've been a DVD collector for the past decade with over 1,100 titles in my collection. "No Holds Barred" has remained at the top of my 'most wanted' list for YEARS.

My only hope is that the film will be presented in its original widescreen format. I can't possibly imagine why it wouldn't be.....but stranger things have happened. I'd also like to see the steel cage match which accompanied the film on Pay-Per-View which was coined as "No Holds Barred: The Movie / The Match". In fact, any WWE cross-promotion material would be certainly welcome.

That being said, I won't complain if this is a bare-bones release. The opportunity to have this film as a part of my collection is more than I could've ever expected, especially after waiting so long. July 3rd can't come soon enough!

I love 80's action films and wrestling, so this is a marriage made in heaven. Hulk Hogan plays Rip, the WWF Champion, and is pursued by a rival company. If you're a wrestling fan it really doesn't make much sense but the business was still protected at the time. Hogan does a good job for a wrestling film, Zeus looked good as a villian, and the film had some very funny moments. Is it corny? sure. Is Rip's injuried brother unintentionally funny? yes. Highly recommend this to old school wrestling fans, today's audience may not get it. Current WWE stars even mocked this film in a recent ad. If you like old school 80's macho action flicks, then you should enjoy this.

I don't know who is in charge of marketing at WWE or if they have someone who markets just the dvds but whoever it is, they need to pick up the slack. WWE has always lacked in the speical features on there dvds and this one could have been much better then a measly photo gallery. I know Hogan is with the rival company but they could have added the unreleased, rarely seen match that followed this movie, Hogan/Beefcake VS Zeus/Macho King in a cage. WWE doesn't seem to care what fans think anyway because the money just flows even if the product sucks.

No Holds Barred could be the best movie ever made. How did the Acadamy over look this movie for best picture in 1989. Not since Rocky III have we seen Hulk Hogan light up the big screen like he does in this movie. RIP Thomas (played by Hul Hogan) is a successful wrestling champion who is is forced to battle the ultimate oponent, Zeus (Tom "Tiny" Lister Jr.) The movie brings you to the edge of your seat with a climatic battle with Zeus and will leave searching for those tissues when RIP's brother (Mark Pellegrino("Murph Calzone in Drowning Mona") is tragically paralyzed. My favorite scene in the movie is when RIP is caught up in a violent robbery at a diner. Instead of surrending to the crooks, he throws pies and other baked goods at them. He through them so fast the robbers did not have time to fire their machine guns. I dont want to give to much away, if you have not seen this movie you are depriving yourself of cinematic genious! I am still waiting for the DVD version so I can see behind the scenes footage of thhis masterpiece.
