I Hate Scum Like Greg Rainmaker
22 April 2002 | by (Syracuse) – See all my reviews

From the opening theme (which by the way happens to include women singing Sta-bil-izer), you know this is cinematic gem. This film regards the exploits of one, the Stabilizer in his quest to thwart the villan (Greg Rainmaker) whose nefariousness is capped of by raping the Stabilizers girlfriend and then stomping her to death with his cleets (this is all done off screen while the camera focuses in on a picture of the Stabilizer that his girlfriend happened to have in her room). Not to mention that Greg Rainmaker has also captured a important scientist, with the assistance of the Indonesian Mr. T, and an endless supply of look-a-like henchmen. How will our hero ever prevail, or in this case Stabilize? Well, if Stabilization has anything to do with exploding and or killing everything in site, then the forces of good are bound to prevail. The Stabilizer in this film, rides dirt bikes onto peoples faces, fist fights at least a hundred guys with machine guns, sets fire to warehouses, puts a criminal underling in a barrel which he then roles around in the back of a truck and jumps off a helicopter while shooting it cause it to explode. Not to mention sleeping with the girl who he had just met. Hot. Not five minutes goes by in this film without some form of overt action and or destruction. And as it is conducted by guys with greasy 70's haircuts, well, it just doesnt get any better than that.
