Look out for his shoes!
1 June 2004 | by (Nykarleby, Finland) – See all my reviews

This film is extreme fun, I've seen with my friends so many times that the VHS tape is badly worn. Luckily Troma has released this gold nugget on DVD.

What I've noticed about "The Stabilizer" is that there are "homages" to other movies. The scene where the Stabilizer is taken captive to meet Victor at a pool house is exactly like a scene from the James Bond film "For Your Eyes Only". And the picture of The Stabilizer in the death scene of the girlfriend looks very much like the poster from "Cobra", starring Sylvester Stallone.

Some gems in the movie:

The guy that says "babyyy, babyyy" and eats a lizard. The shot of what looks like the asscrack but actually is the armpit. The "Location Map".

I recommend "The Stabilizer" to everyone who likes action and insane violence. Two thumbs up!
