Have Quiff Will Kick Butt
A group of prisoners have escaped and taken a government official hostage in an abandoned warehouse. But never fear because Chuck Steel is here and he is the toughest cop with the biggest quiff. And with a robot assistant called ASS to help him kick some bad guy butt and rescue the official before the bad guys kick him in the nuts 250 times and his nuts appear through his nose.
It's the end of the day and I didn't fancy sitting through another full length movie to review so I dug out something I had stumbled across a while back, "Raging Balls of Steel Justice", a 15 minute stop motion movie by someone called Mike Mort who I had never heard of. I didn't know what to expect from it as I hadn't even read a synopsis for it, all I knew was at 15 minutes it could be ideal for a quickie review at the end of a tiring day. Well let me just say that 15 minutes turned in to over an hour as I watched it repeatedly because it put such a big smile on my face.
Now "Raging Balls of Steel Justice" is easy to describe as it is a stop motion, clay-mation homage to the action movies of the 80s where a handsome, squared jaw cop, a lonewolf renegade would turn up and take down an entire warehouse of bad guys whilst a ticking clock ticks down to a bomb going off. But not only is this clay-mation but the ticking clock is the counting up to 250 as someone repeated kicks an official in the nuts. It is hilariously ridiculous, full of jokes which brilliantly spoof the action movies of the 80s and even features a robot getting intimate with a hoover. Quite simply if you enjoy 80s action and moronic comedy then "Raging Balls of Steel Justice" is brilliant from start to finish.
What this all boils down to is that "Raging Balls of Steel Justice" doesn't actually do anything new, the clay-mation/ stop-motion work is enjoyably solid but not breathtakingly new. But the comedy of this Chuck Steel character kicking bad guy butt is just wickedly funny and becomes one of those 15 minute pleasures you will return to when you need picking up. And Mr. Mort I can't wait for the next episode of Chuck Steel and his raging balls.
