Earlier this week, we posted an Action Cast about the 1989 Hulk Hogan movie No Holds Barred. The film is terrible, but kinda fun for anyone that grew up a Hulkamaniac. If you want all the gristly details, you should go listen to the podcast. This article is supplemental material, an homage to Hogan’s acting chops. While watching the movie, I was struck by how… unique a lot of the Hulkster’s facial expressions were and took a bunch of screen captures. A lesser man would post snarky comments with each photo, but I think I’ll step aside and let Hogan’s face do the talking.
Good job Hulk! There’s a couple moments that I couldn’t properly capture with a still shot, so I made a couple animated gifs. In the first one he’s checking on the hot new… Actually, I’m not quite sure what Joan Severance’s job was. Consultant or something, I guess. Anyway, she’s 80’s hot and Hogan wants some.
Man, I don’t even know what this next expression is supposed to be, but it’s great.
WHAT’S THAT SMELL?
And hell, here’s some awesome non-Hogan faces.
Hogan’s opponent, Zeus, played by Tiny Lister Jr. Lister somehow manages to out crazy face Hogan at times, but he’s a little more one note and has the unfair advantage of a lazy eye and a half of a uni-brow, which shouldn’t even be possible.
Brell, the evil TV exec, screaming, “JOCKASS!” Still can’t figure out what the fuck that means. Is it like jock itch, but on your ass?
Jake Bullet after after telling the evil network henchmen that they have, “Teeny wangers.” Looks like he’s melting.
