This is a nice little low-budget Canadian bare-knuckle boxing drama
directed by legendary stunt coordinator and second unit director Conrad E. Palmisano.
The movie stars Paul Coufos ( Lost Empire), Irene Cara, Stan Shaw and Tony Rosato.

The story is simple and the acting passable at best
but i liked the gritty side of Toronto and the neighborhood camaraderie.

This is not among Irene Cara´s best works but she sings three nice tunes here.
BTW, she was married to director Palmisano at the time of the film's release.

Irene Cara - Busted Up

Paul Coufos is called Earl Bird in this film and he made a movie Thunderground in 1989
where his character is also called Bird .
Anyone seen it and happen to know if it´s supposed to be a sequel?

I like to watch these kind of films.
There´s always lots of things to enjoy, the familiar faces, the 80s feel, the soundtrack etc.
Next i need to find Thunderground [Cool]

I love this Medusa Home Video cover art!

Atomik If you watch the 1992 Slasher movie happy hell night(I have the anchor bay dvd,it's quite a fun little horror) there's a funny scene set in a mental institution involving a nurse and a patient who happen to be watching a scene from busted up on there portable television,not sure what the link is between the 2 movies and why they happen to be watching busted up but it's an amusing scene.

I have three more movies which include Coufos: The Lost Empire, Chopping Mall and 976-Evil II.
He must be Jim Wynorski´s number one drinking pal [Big Grin]
