Kevin Sorbo has some new Flesh Wounds

HOLY SHIT! This looks like Hercules vs the Borg. I'm in.

I hinted at this last week. (And I base this off the trailer) This movie is one amazing looking Rip Off...of a Rip Off. Anyone remember my Robowar review? Basically Robowar is Predator, shot for shot, if the Predator were a Robot.

Now we have Flesh Wounds. Which looks like its Robowar...if it starred Kevin Sorbo.

Yes. This is gonna be awesome!

You know, last night I watched another Kevin Sorbo ripoff: Never Cry Werewolf. It is a SHOT FOR SHOT ripoff of Fright Night. It has it all. I was blown away. I mean, wow. (review soon) But if Flesh Wounds is anything like that, then we are in for a GOOD TIME! I love ripoffs. I don't know why. Maybe its just fun to sit and watch these movies in anticipation for the next scene they steal.

Dear god, is Kevin Sorbo the next Reb Brown? You know...cuz Reb Brown did all those ripoffs in the 80s...Strike Commando, Robowar, Yor. I hope so. That'd be awesome.

Anyway, Flesh Wounds: SYNOPSIS!

On a remote US Army facility that officially doesn’t exist, a top-secret group of scientists conduct weapons research when they’re horribly and suddenly ripped apart by an unseen enemy.

With the disappearance of the scientists blamed on terrorists, an elite covert ops team commanded by Lt. Tyler (Kevin Sorbo) is tasked with recovering the missing personnel within 24 hours as well as keeping the operation strictly off the books. Accompanied by CIA escort Cassandra Mason (Heather Marie Marsden), Tyler’s team arrives in country only to find the scientists already dead. They’ve been savagely dismembered, and as one of the team observes, "There’s no way an AK-47 can do this to a man." Tyler’s commandos engage the terrorists, but after the slaughter it’s apparent the supposed terrorists are actually a contingent of US soldiers on a training exercise. Something far stronger and more dangerous than terrorists has mutilated the scientists.

Pentagon machinations aside, Mason points out that Tyler’s job is just to shoot his gun and keep his mouth shut. But as the bodies pile up and the deadline closes in, the reason for the secrecy becomes clear. Tyler and his team have been sent to destroy a prototype super soldier, and this mission they may not return from.

Well that is pretty revealing. And pretty much exactly what happens in Robowar. And Predator. BUT it's totally different. This has Kevin Sorbo. And scientists. This is gonna be awesome.

Look for Flesh Wounds to hit DVD on July 28th. Hopefully this goes straight to Netflix Instant. I need to see this.


  1. I hope Kevin Sorbo is the new Reb Brown! That would be awesome! Flesh Wounds looks like ridiculous fun.

  2. They sure made the trailer look good! I've always loved Sorbo's casual, off-hand delivery. He just makes me feel so at ease. Like in Hercules, he made the character this personable, really great guy and not some scary, self-righteous, demi-god of a hero.

  3. I agree completely. It's why i enjoy Kevin Sorbo so much. But to be honest...I really paid no attention to him until the last few years. After Hercules I guess I just forgot he existed.

    I really should watch Andromeda though. I like Sci-Fi. And I like Kevin Sorbo.

  4. I know, right? It's like I was just too disappointed after Hercules ended. He even made that Kull movie and I didn't even bother going to see it at the time.

    If I remember right, after Hercules I moved on to Jack Of All Trades. That was FUN FUN STUFF! The episodes near the end got a little crappy (like when they had Micheal Hurst show up and do embarrassing Monty Python rip-offs) but all-in-all I loved that show. You can't beat a big, beefy, wise-cracking Bruce Campbell!

  5. No, no you can't. I think that's around the same time I used to watch Cleopatra 2525. I was young and those chicks were hot. That's really all I remember. hahahaha
