A Fun Movie! In my opinion, it's possibly Busey's best role. (by RTheManF89)
I recently purchased this, well not purchased, but my dear mom was nice enough to buy this DVD at Ross today for the low price of just $4.00. At first, I actually had no freakin' idea that this was on DVD to begin with. I thought the only available copy was the OOP VHS from USA Home Video Which is now Lions Gate . It had a cooler cover than the DVD, but before I get back to the movie, I would just like to make a little rant about how the big Hollywood studios And the greedy sharks that own them keep changing the cover art Or force the art department to do so for DVD releases. This <more>
one's a good example. The cover art for the original VHS of this movie made it look fun and imo, somehow dramatic, but this cover looks like it's been made over at MGM using Photoshop. It just doesn't make the movie look good to a buyer. It seems like these studios could really care less about nostalgia and just only care about making it appeal to today's youth. I guess you could also say that the cover for this made it look like a Transporter Rip-Off or a John Woo- type movie from 2001. Anyway, back to the movie. It's about a Vietnam Vet/Ex-Con He had been convicted for a crime he didn't commit named Buck Matthews Played by Gary Busey in as I stated, quite possibly his best role. who had just been granted parole and he goes back to his hometown to move on with his life and his family, his wife Christie Played by Denise Galik and Jennifer Played by Judith Barsi from the awful "Jaws 4: The Revenge", may god rest her poor soul . We then see Buck at the police station, where he meets the corrput sheriff Played by Seymour Cassel and meets up with J.B. Played by Yaphet Kotto Also, Buck encounters a biker gang The leader Blade, being played by the always awesome William Smith from "Maniac Cop" attacking a nurse, and saves her life and he becomes a town hero. However, it isn't long before the gang attacks Buck's house and kills Christie. Then, the movie starts to move into Death Wish territory. I do not feel like going further for the moment I really don't want to spoil anything for anybody , but I will say the rest gets more exciting every minute. That's just my opinion though. As for the DVD itself, there really isn't much, although MGM did do a good job with the very beautiful widescreen quality. There is a trailer, but that's pretty much it for extras. There could have been like a director's commentary or even a commentary by either Busey or Kotto or all 3, but I really don't know.
A cool movie about motorcycle gangs. (by jeffman52001)
"Eye of the Tiger" is a real awesome action film with a great cast, Gary Busey, Yaphet Kotto, Denise Galik-Furey, who is best known for her roll in the 1984 mini series "V: The Final Battle", and William Smith, who starred in such films as "Red Dawn" and "Any Which Way You Can". Seymour Cassel is awesome as the corrupt sheriff in the movie.The movie starts out when convict and Vietnam Vet Buck Matthews played by Gary Busey gets released from prison, a fellow convict tells him if he needs anything, let him know. Buck gets home to his wife played by <more>
Denise Galik-Furey and daughter, things seem alright, but a biker gang is terrorizing the small town they live in.Buck is having to deal with them, they murder his wife and cause his daughter to go into shock. Buck's problems are also bad with his parole officer played By Seymour Cassel , who is also the sheriff of the town is in league with the biker gang. Buck goes after the gang, he asks the members of the town at the bingo game to help him but are afraid. the only one who will help him is his friend J.B. Deveraux, who is also a Vietnam Vet too.This movie is an awesome film, the most memorable scene is when one of the bikers who ended up in the hospital, lost his voice cause of Buck Matthews, is forced to tell him where the gang took his daughter. Buck takes a stick of dynamite and puts Vaseline on it and shoves it up his butt and lights it, telling the guy that he has some seconds to write it down, which he does and Buck leaves letting to fuse on the dynamite run down and the biker dies of a heart attack, to this day, I still laugh at that part in the movie.I give this film 10 out of 10 stars.
Busey gets the lead...and gets revenge! (by ManBehindTheMask63)
Gary Busey plays an ex-nam vet and recently released convict he is innocent...he was framed Buck Matthews. He returns home to his family only to find that the town has become over run by a deadly biker gang that sells drugs all over the world. The sheriff has been paid off, so there is no law and the biker's get away with murder literally! . So when Buck decides to rescue a woman from getting raped by the bikers...the bikers wage a war against him, killing his wife and destroying his home. So Buck decides to take the law into his own hands and seek revenge for this wife and protect the <more>
town. It's a pretty simple plot that's fun to watch. The acting is excellent and it is interesting & cool to see Busey play the lead hero for once. The action is decent, with lots of chases and a hand to hand fight scene against the head baddie at the end. The film has good budget and the movie was put together well. The song "Eye of the tiger" is obviously used during the opening credits and at the end when he goes on his vengeance spree. Overall, it was a cool flick that was made cooler by the fact that Busey was the lead action hero. There's a nice decapitation scene in there too.
This breath-taking and all guns blazing vigilante flick from 80s is something to look for. Note: If you are fan of films like First Blood, Commando, Lone Wolf McQuade and Death Wish 3 this is a must-see. Gary Busey is tougher than ever in this film, this was his effort to make it bad-ass like Stallone and Norris and he really nails it, teamed with always solid Yaphet Kotto. Talking about mean villains in action flicks, the biker gang here really is something. Conclusion is of course over-the-top final battle action. The biggest surprise is that this movie ain't Cannon Films production, it <more>
sure has same feel in it. Don't know what's the point of naming the film after that Eye Of The Tiger song, it's cool title, but song was embodied with Rocky pictures so much already at the time when this came out in 1986. That original track actually plays also in the film if someone wonders. But anyway, absolutely fantastic action classic from the 80s is the case.
This just came on late-night television and I was captivated. It's everything you want in a B-movie. Bikers getting decapitated, hilarious fistfights, and GARY BUSEY. Clearly not a comedy, but I was laughing for half the movie. If you're one of those people like me who enjoy brainless 80's action movies, especially ones with non-sequiturs and the most unbelievable dialogue ever written, then you would enjoy EYE OF THE TIGER. I was entertained. I really don't know what else there is to say about this movie. So in closing: Gary Busey.
Gary Busey had his best starring role outside of 'The Buddy Holly Story' in this 1986 actioner. He stars as typical 80's action hero, Buck Matthews. He's a decorated Vietnam vet, husband and father, and a wrongly convicted ex-con. Fresh out of prison, Buck heads home to his small town to lie low and reconnect with his family. This plan goes south in a hurry. His parole officer is the sheriff who set him up on murder charges in the first place. Then Matthews runs across the deadly drug-running biker gang who has been terrorizing the town while he was in prison. What makes <more>
things worse is the gang and the sheriff are in business together.Matthews rescues a rape victim from the gang one night and receives the wrath of the gang's leader, played by veteran bad guy William Smith. Without giving away a crucial plot point, I will simply say that tragedy ensues. Buck goes on a vengeance spree that would make Charles Bronson proud.This is not the type of movie that is nominated for awards and is discussed on any best movies ever list. It is, however, a fantastic example of the type of action / revenge movies that were popular in the 1970's and 80's. Invite some buddies over, heat up the popcorn, and enjoy this awesome movie.
A fun, forgotten 80's gem, well worth a watch for 80's action fans! (by bcbell79)
Gary Busey is fantastic as a just-out of jail Vietnam vet, wrongly imprisoned years before by his hometown Sheriff. He returns home to his wife and daughter, only find himself harassed by the local Sheriff Seymour Cassel that had him imprisoned years before. Buck Mathews Busey refuses to leave town, so the Sheriff hires the local biker gang to harass Mathews and and his family. Things go too far, and Mathews sets out on a mission of revenge against both the gang, headed by Blade a maniacal Vernon Wells of Commando fame , and the Sheriff.Eye of the Tiger is a great B-movie. The <more>
cinematography and directing are great, and it has a wonderful cast. Yaphet Kotto is perfect as Mathews old buddy, who is now an about- to-retire deputy to the corrupt Sheriff. The two team up to wreak havoc on the biker gang and deal out damage from the ground and air. If you enjoy 80's action, and especially if you like Gary Busey, this is a B-movie worth seeking out. It's a good revenge story, full of good over the top 80's violence, and it has a great cast. Plus, it uses Survivors classic Eye of the Tiger song as it's theme! Whether you are relaxing on a lazy Sunday afternoon, or drinking beers with buddies on a Friday night, if you enjoy 80's action, this movie is for you...
