Anyone who is cynical about this movie obviously does not know anything about excellent movies. This movie had it all, highlighted by an excellent performance by midget Billy Barty in what was surely the best job that he's done out of his 67 roles, superb acting jobs by Roddy Piper, Lou Albano, and Sam Fatu, and of course the excellent music of Kicks. Plus, the guy from the A-Team is just a tremendous leading man. The world was waiting for a movie such as this one, and when it arrived, the world was overwhelmed, so it didn't get as much credit as it should have. Still, like fine wine, the movie has gotten better with age, as we can now look back at it with a historical perspective and enjoy it that much more. If every movie were like Bodyslam, the world would be a much better place. I highly suggest this movie. If you miss it, I dare to say that you haven't truly lived.
