I've definitely never heard of this movie before! Gymkata! Jamie saw this growing up and certain scenes have stuck with him all these years. After watching this movie myself, I can see why one would NEVER forget the gymkata expert Jonathan Cabot (aka gymnastics world champ Kurt Thomas) "walking" up a flight of stairs on his hands. The cinematographer (if there was such a person on staff at all) made sure the angles were just right to make that particular scene completely unforgettable. Yup, so he walks up stairs on his hands, pommel horse fights a gang of villagers in the City of the Crazies or something like that (also available on YouTube), and gets the girl, who "has a very interesting background" (actually, she doesn't). My favourite part had to be when a character shouts "Double blackmail!" when he clearly meant to say "Double-crossed!" Oh, and I also liked how this movie had reverse-Rollerball syndrome, meaning it moved so fast that we didn't know what was happening. Watch the trailer, decide for yourself, and if you can't find this one on VHS (like Jamie did at Limelight) then watch the whole thing on YouTube. It's a good way to spend 90 minutes, we laughed a lot, and Jamie truly fulfilled the mission of the Guilty Pleasure Movie Club. Awesome times!
And check this out, too, because it's pretty awesome:
