The Man Movie Encyclopedia: Best of the Best 2

Greetings, all.

I do know it’s been a minute, and I apologize. I began working for Amazon, and that together with every little thing else your boy doing has stored me busy. However we’re again on monitor. It additionally took me a minute to discover a film, as a result of I used to be actually in the temper for some early 90’s martial arts films, and I’ve coated nearly each rattling one of’em. However then I recalled this little gem, hell yeah.

Alright, sufficient jibber jabber, let’s discover out who’s the greatest of the greatest….2!


We open up with a helicopter dropping off Brakus, the uber-bad ass champion, who fights at an evening membership referred to as The Inventory Change. Man, rising up, each different film launched was about wealthy individuals watching under-ground fights. That was the complete purpose I needed to achieve success. It wasn’t to make my mother and father proud, it wasn’t so I wouldn’t should starve to dying, hell no, it’s so I might go to parking garages at 3am on a Friday wearing a go well with and watch dudes struggle! The man who’s principally the ring-leader is performed by Wayne Newton. I would like the sequel the place Robert Gulet is a human trafficker.
So, the place they battle in known as ‘The Coliseum’, the place Brakus is of course champ. It’s in a particular VIP part of the Inventory Change. Right here, Travis, performed by Chris Penn, has to face three dudes. Profitable a considerable quantity of cash for every victory. If he can defeat all three, he will get to face Brakus. Travis fights some black dude who appears like he sweats child oil. Critically, he’s so rattling shiney, it’s distracting. He dismantles the man prety straightforward.


We then meet two different dudes on a tenting journey, Alex, and Tyree. Alex is performed by Eric Roberts, and Tyree by Phillip Rhee. Alex has a son, Walter, who’s gonna attempt for a black belt. We minimize to their ceremony, and Walter is up there with three different youngsters, all about the age of 11-15. Yeah, any child getting a black belt at that age is a component of a McDojo. Until that child has been coaching since he was 1 or so. The last half is breaking wooden and bricks. He’s unable to interrupt his brick, thus, no belt. The lamest half of martial arts, the half my mom might do, is what retains him from his black belt. I’d be so pissed if I spent all that rattling time memorizing these silly katas simply to flunk. Hell no. We then get some lame duck shit the place his dad says he’s proud of him regardless that he failed. Pssh. Nuts to that. The very first thing you study at the John Kreese Faculty of Parenting is when your baby fails, you seize the nearest folding chair and pummel them. Or punch them with a roll of quarters.


Anyway, later that night time Travis finally ends up caught with Walter, and takes him to the coliseum, the place Kane Hodder performs a safety guard. Hell yeah. For no matter purpose, Travis doesn’t need to struggle all three dudes, he simply smarted off to Brakus and received the battle. Travis is suppose to be on the US Karate group, however all he does is throw boxing fashion punches, and simply stands there when Brakus holds his arm. In fact, Brakus kicks the shit out of him, after which they shut down the present, apart from the tremendous, tremendous VIP who’re all sitting in the VIP seats up above the battle platform. They’re allowed to vote, does Travis die, or reside? Oh, he dies. Walter then runs away and tells his dad, they usually go to the Inventory Trade. They meet up with Wayne Newton, and he says that Travis was right here, however acquired his bell rung and left with a chick.
Properly, subsequent factor they see is Travis being pulled out of a lake together with his automotive, making his dying seem like an accident. They then go to the Inventory Trade, and confront Newton. He swears up and down that Travis walked out of right here, however then Brakus instantly confesses to killing him the second he’s requested. There’s a bit of a scuffle, Tyree finally ends up inflicting Brakus to chop his face on some glass, and that REALLY pisses of Brakus. Properly, they determine to kill the child and his dad, however Brakus needs Tyree. The subsequent day, these dudes in a Lincoln chase Walter whereas he’s on his bike. Not solely is he capable of out freaking run them, however he rides his bike DIRECTLY into space 51! I would like the sequel the place his son out-runs Usane Bolt in a Ferrari and geese into The Misplaced Metropolis of Atlantis for canopy. Nicely, when he heads residence, a bunch of dangerous dudes present up and get their asses kicked. They determine it’s not protected, in order that they head to Tommy’s grandma’s place some place out in the desert. It’s there we meet a relative of his, James, performed by Sonny Landahm. James is only a drunk piece of shit, who wears denim EVERYTHING and is principally superior. He even threatens to tear Tommy’s head off his head. We then hear about how James use to all the time battle when he was youthful, disappeared someday to go struggle over-seas, however acquired in an enormous automotive accident and that was that. So, now he’s only a shitty drunk. Nicely, the grandma tells James that he higher assist Tommy, or he’s out of there. So, the subsequent morning we study that the automotive accident was truly Brakus, and that he’s 1 of three individuals in the world that may train Tommy learn how to defeat him.
If it have been me, we’d by no means even make it to the coaching levels, as a result of I’d be too busy yammering:

Caliber: What are the odds?! Critically. You go abroad and battle him, then I’ve a run in with him, leading to me inevitably having to struggle Brakus, so I’ve to cover out on a small reservation, the place there simply so occurs to be ONE out of three individuals who may give me the cheat code to defeat him. That’s like a katrillion to 1. Additionally, James, do you personal inventory in Levi & Strouse or one thing? Do you pay Jay Leno to be your private stylist? Every little thing you put on is denim. I guess even your socks & underwear are denim. I guess if I requested you what you had for breakfast this morning you’d say denim”

So, he teaches them to struggle with bo-staffs as a result of in the event that they make it previous the prelims, then it’s bo-staff time, then makes them head right into a small tent, also referred to as a sweat lodge. He gained’t allow them to depart as soon as it will get tremendous scorching, after which a number of extra guys are available and begin enjoying some Native music. Once more, I must pipe up:

Caliber: OK, and what’s this for? In case I make it previous the bo-staff half, and the third half is simply coping with actually fucking annoying environment? Brakus and I gonna every sit in entrance of a Costco heat-dish whereas sporting an electrical blanket and driving whereas continuously having to tug out of locations and switch left, and when you look to your proper for visitors, the individual driving with you leans ahead and checks for visitors too, thus successfully blocking your eye-sight as they speak about the advantages of Keto weight-reduction plan?

The subsequent morning, Brakus’ males present up, and James offs a number of earlier than getting killed himself. They take Tommy, and blow up the relaxation of the place, assuming Alex, his child, and the others are lifeless. However naturally, they escaped. Tommy has been taken to the Coliseum, the place he’ll face Brakus for “challenging his invincibility”.


Naturally, Tommy doesn’t simply get to struggle Brakus straight up, he’s gotta work his means up. Look, we might attempt to kill youngsters and innocents, however we now have a fame to up maintain. Tommy faces a champion boxer, and instantly breaks his leg and arm. Yeaaaah, I don’t assume that’s how that’d go. Subsequent up Tommy has to face a man who gained the gold in the Olympics by way of wrestling, and proceeds to not even ATTEMPT any type of wrestling. He actually doesn’t even seize him as soon as. This film was co-written by Phillip Rhee, who performs Tommy. So, it’s no shock he’s beating a champion boxer and Olympic wrestler. Though he’s letting me down, as a result of in case your boy is scripting this…

Director: Cal, we gotta speak….
Caliber: About what?
Director: OK…so, you beat a champion boxer.
Caliber: Yeah…
Director: An Olympic wrestler…
Caliber: Proper…
Director: Nicely, then it says right here that your girlfriend, Kelly Divine, abruptly is available in and begs you to not battle, as a result of your penis is so giant and superior. I dunno, that appears a bit—
Caliber: You’re proper, I do know what you’re gonna say. OK, let’s have a scene the place I beat up two UFC champions at the similar time, each of whom are every driving their very own monster truck, and I first beat up the monster truck like in these Road Fighter/Remaining Battle bonus levels, and THEN Kelly can are available and speak about my superior dick!

Properly, Tommy will get fairly near what I’d do. After that he beats a Mongolian sort dude who fights together with his hair. Trustworthy to God. My favourite half is that now that Alex and such are free, they don’t hassle calling the cops and telling them there’s an unlawful underground battle happening, hosted by males who attacked and killed my buddies, no, as an alternative they go and get the Olympic TaeKwonDo workforce to assist them kick ass! Goddammit I really like the 90s.
In the meantime, Alex drops Walter off at his girlfriend’s home, a reporter, who mentions that she heard Tommy is gonna face Brakus. How the hell did she hear this?! Yeah, I heard all about your good friend being illegally held and compelled to battle to the demise. That’s the scuttlebut! Additionally, she has her TV off in the nook of a room, with out her couch or chair pointing at it. I’m so irritated by this.
Properly, Tommy and Brakus lastly have their battle, and it ain’t too shabby. Tommy will get in an excellent quantity of hits earlier than they struggle with the metal bo-staffs. In the meantime, Alex and the TaeKwonDo cats are going via the membership and beating the shit out of everybody. Tommy lastly beats Brakus, and kills him after he assaults Tommy as soon as the struggle was suppose to be over. Tommy’s freaking hair isn’t even tousled. Dude acquired punched, kicked, kneed, and hit with a metal bar a number of occasions, and his freaking hair isn’t even tousled. Man, I want to put in writing my very own film. Wayne Newton is like “hey, you should keep fighting! You can earn $20 mill a year!” and acts as if he didn’t have their good friend killed, lied about it, then tried to have all of them killed, ended up killing Tommy’s brother, and blowing up his grandma’s land. I imply, positive, some individuals might contemplate these an enormous deal, I assume.

The finances was $7 million dollars, and it virtually made that a lot again at the finish of it’s theatrical run, after debuting on March seventh, 1993.

As a result of of how this carried out at the box-office, the remaining sequels have been launched direct to video. I’m completely shocked they felt this was one thing worthy of cinemas.

Kane Hodder, principally famously recognized for enjoying Jason Voorhees, is the cat working the again door, and even will get stabbed with a pencil.

This could be the quintisential early 90’s martial arts film ever made. Best of the Best 2 is pure B-Movie. The appearing is…properly, it’s one thing, some of the characters are ridiculous, the plot is other-worldly insane and absurd, however all that issues is that it’s enjoyable, and this film is enjoyable. That is one of these films you’d get the most out of together with your buddies and a few booze. You get some strong struggle scenes, a bodybuilder turned actor, and Wayne Newton. What extra might you ask for?
