The "Boz" rides to the rescue
6 December 2003 | by sol1218See all my reviews

******SPOILERS****** Far fetched movie, even by Hollywood standers, about a biker gangs assault on the state capital building in Jackson Mississippi in order to save a fellow biker "Trouble" Owens,Billy Millon. "Trouble" Owens was sentenced to death for the murder of a Baptist minister after he was already sentenced to 45 years in jail for the same crime! Doesn't this violate "Trouble" Owens' constitutional right against double-jeopardy?.

To make things even more interesting the bikers plan to knock off Brent "The Whip" Whipperton, David Tress, the state take no BS D.A who's running for governor on the Law & Order ticket. The "Whip's" platform is that that he'll, if elected, do everything in his power to break up notorious "The Brotherhood" Bikers. That's the biker gang thats involved in murdering law and religious leaders who threaten their criminal activities and who pushed for the death penalty being imposed on the convicted biker leader "Trouble" Owens .

Brian "Boz" Bosworth, Joe Huff, a Mobile Alabama undercover cop who specializes in infiltrating biker gangs is recruited by the FBI to get the "goods" on "The Brotherhood's" leaders Chains, Lace Henriksen, and Ice, William Forsythe, as well as uncover their plans to spring Trouble Owens from jail. If it weren't for the final five or so minutes of the movie "Stone Cold" wouldn't be worth watching with has "The Brotherhood's" explosive assault on the state capital building and "The Boz" coming to the rescue, by air, just in the nick of time before they can get away.

"Stone Cold" gets muddled as soon as it starts with sub-plot after sub-plot bogging down the story and confusing the audience. But it's more then worth sitting through just to see the showdown at the end of the movie between the bikers vrs the police FBI and the US army which will not disappoint and more then make up for the boring and confusing story up to that point.

Even though he can't act a lick Brian "Boz" Bosworth is very imposing and physical in the movies incredible action scenes. It's only when he reads his lines that you can't keep from chuckling and wondering if this role that "The Boz" is playing as an undercover agent for the FBI is nothing more then a comedy shtick for a "Saturday Night Live" TV show.

Henriksen and Forsythe easily steal the acting honors in the movie as the crazed and insane bikers leaders Chains and Ice. Chains even gets religious in order to get close to and take out the hated state DA Brent "The Whip" Whipperton. It's the what looks like deranged and foaming from the mouth D.A Whipperton who comes across as vicious and obnoxious as any of the crazed bikers in the movie! And mind you "The Whip" is supposed to be one of the "good guys".
