I remember Cage (1989) starring Lou Ferrigno who stars as a Vietnam War veteran named Billy who is shot in the head in battle and comes home from the war mentally retarded. I forget the plot points, but he somehow ends up fighting in cage matches (hence the movie title) and destroys people with his wrath and powerful strength when p**sed off, but if he's not p**sed off then he is a big ol' lovable teddy bear that you would trust your own little children to play games with.

The entire premise of the movie, I found to be extremely hilarious, especially the fight scenes where he goes from Teddy Ruxpin to rabid grizzly bear if someone punches the old war wound in his head! The first fight is the funniest, where Billy walks up to his mean opponent in the ring and happily introduces himself with an open handshake, "Hi, I'm Billy!" before he gets clobbered by his opponent and replies "Hey, why'd you do that?" The pummeling continues until you almost expect Lou Ferrigno to turn green before he inevitably mops the ring mat with his opponent's broken body.  BounceGiggle

Apparently, Cage was so good that it spawned a sequel in 1994, but I never saw that one.  Thumbup TeddyR

Cage is quite the gem and Lou's first big screen attempt at being recognized as a "serious actor". Of course it totally backfired  BounceGiggle
I think Lou Ferrigno's Filmography is interesting. Because of his Hulk reputation he should've been a bigger action movie hero star in the 80s. Instead he choose vanity projects showing off his physical assets rather than his acting abilities. Those glorifying Italian Hercules, Gladiator and Sinbad movies did nothing for him except for making him the laughing stock of bad movies. Had Lou been a bit more ambitious and serious about his movie career he should've started at zero playing the exact opposite of his Hulk stigma - as in the defeatable anti-hero or bad guy, and work his way up from there. His pseudo versatile image didn't come over well, though he did a decent job in the Matt Houston episode "Blood Ties" playing a serial killer.
Lots of missed opportunities and wrong (lazy?) career choices, that's why you won't ever see Lou in any Expendables movies  Wink

I would love to see Lou Ferrigno in one of the Expendables movies, even as a bad guy like the marvelously bad Vilain role played by Jean Claude Van Damme. It's weird, but Lou Ferrigno is starting to look like a shorter, more articulate version of Andre the Giant these days!  BounceGiggle

     SHOWDOWN IN LITTLE TOKYO, starring Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee, is a personal favorite.

Small | Large

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I recommend the Schwarzenegger film Raw Deal (1985). Okay, it's not a bad film by any means, it has alot of cheesy entertaining action in it. I got it as part of a boxset with Red Heat and Total Recall.
