Editorial Reviews

Deep inside the nation's top chemical weapons facility, a brilliant terrorist takes a Congresswoman hostage. The Navy can't stop him. The Air Force can't reach him. The Coast Guard can't kill him. Only one man can do the job: special agent Ryan Cooper. He's in a race against time to save the world, facing his greatest challenge yet!

2.0 out of 5 stars "Any questions, just ask Congresswoman Rambo" June 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
By watching "Stranglehold," I complete my quest of seeing all of Jerry Trimble's solo starring vehicles, and I'm afraid I have to say that I wish this could have been more rewarding. I've always maintained that Trimble was one of the best physical specimens of the 90s movie scene, and thus it's a particular shame that he mostly got stuck with directors who didn't really know how to shoot a film. I take "Stranglehold" particularly hard, since it's the only vehicle of his I've seen that doesn't even focus on his strengths as an action hero. Cirio Santiago's attempt to make "Die Hard in a chemical factory" might be fine by Filipino standards of the time, but it's incredibly disappointing for someone like me who cries at the fact that Jerry Trimble hasn't been a leading man for almost twenty years...although if I were to judge by this film alone, I wouldn't be surprised.

The story: Congresswoman Helen Filmore (Jillian McWhirter, The Dentist 2: Brace Yourself) is taken hostage by a psychotic terrorist threatening to unleash a deadly chemical upon the earth (Vernon Wells, The Road Warrior), and the only man who can stop him is undercover agent Ryan Cooper (Trimble, The Master).

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even a good/bad movie March 25, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just awful. Whoever thought making this was a good idea should be put back in the nuthouse. You can tell when a movie is bad when it is shot in a warehouse. The story is awful, the directing is awful and guess what? the acting of all concerned awful to the Nth degree. If any of these people ever did another film....there is not taste in the world. Stay away.

Jerry Golden Boy Trimble stars in his best movie. He plays a bodyguard to politicians on tour. They are touring a refinery and terrorists take it over and he has to get everyone out and stop the terrorists..

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the greatest Golden Boy film ever. February 19, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Do you like cornball 80's action movies?
Do you like those movies to star kickboxers you never heard of before?
Do you like movies that feature absolutely nothing shown on the cover?
Do you like bad editing?

...but most importantly...do you like Vernon Wells?

My answer to all of those questions is: HELLS YES! And this movie has it all and more (or less).

No, I am not joking about the cover thing either. Even the screenshots on the back of the case aren't in the film. There's no awesome shirtless chain swing while choking a guy with a desert eagle. There is no scene where a woman in a white bra is flying from an explosion, or a black bra lady running for her life. BUT what there IS, is a ton of 80's cheese and Vernon "Chainmail Vest" Wells being a total badass...and isn't that worth thr price of admission alone?

Stranglehold is a perfect stocking stuffer for anyone who loves greatastic action and whoawesome plots. Buy it...shoot, buy three or four of them and pass them out to your friends. You will thank me. It's worth baderiffic every moment.
