BOO-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-O!!!
24 November 1998 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I got drowsy real fast over this snoozy little wrestling drama, so I took a nap until the tape in my VCR reached the end point. If you really like pro wrestling, watch the W.C.W. instead! With the action looking bloody well tame by modern standards, BLOOD AND GUTS has seen its better days. It's also very unappealing to many who are used to staying up on Monday nights to skip homework assignments. GRUNT: THE WRESTLING MOVIE is what I can recommend, although still not as exciting. Here's further proof that any movie with wrestling or monster trucks in it (i.e. ROLLING VENGEANCE) isn't worth the price of admission. Don't guess....it's B-O-R-I-N-G!

One....two....THREE!!!
