Did You Know?


In a Q&A with the audience after a special screening of the film in Austin's Alamo Drafthouse in 2014, Brian Bosworth talked about how original director Bruce Malmuth was fired due to some "personal issues that he couldn't control which poured out on set", and his firing caused all the original backstory for Bosworth's character to be removed and changed after Craig R. Baxley was hired to direct. About four weeks was spent filming scenes with Bosworth's character and his family (wife, child and sister), which in the end were completely axed out after $4 million was spent shooting them.

Bikie action at some of it's best
10 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

There are similarities to this and Harley Davidson and The Marlboro Man, which I won't go into. Suffice to say, I'd option for this instead. Stone Cold is a new wave action thriller that rides high on violence and action, that bikie fans will love. Although it didn't get a cinema release in Adelaide (I wish to hell it had) this action extravaganza has a good story too would you believe. Certain political figures and agents are getting bumped off, by a vicious bikie gang called The Brotherhood, led by the sadistic and always good Henrickson. The opening scene, just a set up of character, that has no bearing on the story, has agent Bosworth, chewing on a cookie as if it was the best one he ever had, when he's rudely interrupted by some two bid robbers. This readily confirms that our action fans are not gonna be disappointed by this one. Blackmailed by these agents into infiltrating the Brotherhood, he plays the part, going undercover, and of course falling in love with Henrickson's girl. And how could you not have the great character actor, the wild and unruly William Forsythe as one of the rowdy gang. This movies got everything, babes, explosions, gunfights, chases, and of course humor. Though the end, I hated. Why? Cause, it contradicts itself, with a couple of good people, intended victims, die, where Bosworth fails. Here, his retribution goes into overdrive, where on the other side of that coin, our audience who love craving revenge, this unpredictable mishap does deliver a more explosive, but stupid and forgettable ending. In the acting stakes, Bosworth, not the worst actor I've seen, is surpassed by his supporting players, one of course being Henricksen. But we're not really here to watch Bosworth's acting, though there is room for some bloody improvement.
