Profile in Style: Gorilla

Early in the film, Gorilla tells Steve how he was banned from pro wrestling for biting the ears off his opponents when he won (maybe Mike Tyson saw this movie as a kid too!). So amongst a group of mostly martial artists, his is a style of simple brute force.

The Signature Modus Operandi

Choke yo' punk ass!

And chokin' yo' punk ass!

Come here so I can choke yo' punk ass!

Surprise! Yo' punk ass is choked!

The Nutcracker

How's that size 18 in the crotch feel?

The Head Butt

That's gonna leave a mark!

The Moe Howard Head Knock

Oooh, a couple of wiseguys!

The Fake Arm Bar

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the human
arm is meant to bend that way.

The Helicopter

A little cliche, but always good for a laugh.

The School Yard Showdown

Nothing like a good old-fashioned game of "mercy"

The Passive-Aggressive

Hey, Gorilla. Did you happen to notice a bunch of people fighting all around you?

Minor Character Spotlight: Gas Station Attendant

Cast in the role of "Gas Station Attendant," South African actor Deon Stewardson made his on-screen debut in

Stewardson appears as a New Babylonian "citizen" who sprays blue potato fuel everywhere when the mind control drug begins to wear off. He then runs away from the Chief Guard and is quickly subdued by a cadre of no less than five guards and receives a "reinforcement" injection from a male nurse who seems to magically jump into the scene from nowhere.

While Stewardson landed a number of acting jobs throughout the 80s and 90s, he is best known for his current role as Anders Du Plessis on the British television series
Wild At Heart.
