Mad Bull Karkus VS The Demented Killer
29 December 2003 | by (Anderson, Indiana) – See all my reviews

Alex Karras' portrayal of Iago "The Mad Bull" Karkus is not great, but is really okay. He plays a professional wrestler grappling with his conscience over losing his wife and son because of his career choice. During his soul-searching, he meets and falls in love with Christina Sebastiani (Susan Anspach), a fellow Greek. She doesn't like his chosen profession any more than his ex-wife, but she does try to understand him. Meanwhile, he is stalked by a demented killer (Tracy Walter). Will he win Christina's love and find the killer, or lose both her love and his life? Karras has several moments of really great acting in this film. His greatest moment is a tender scene at his brother's bedside who took a bullet meant for him. Karras has done better movies, but all in all, not a bad character study.
