Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

“Rampage” Jackson Would Like to Thank the Academy…

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: "Rampage" Jackson will be back.  If this clip from his performance in "Death Warrior" is any indicator — and how could it not be? — the dude just doesn’t have the acting chops to build a real future in the film business.  If we’re being honest, he doesn’t have the chops to hang in a community college production of "A Raisin in the Sun."  There’s a reason fighting and acting are two fields that generally do not compete for the same talent, and Jackson is a good example of why. 

Maybe he’s gotten some formal instruction since then and his "A-Team" performance will be much more polished, prompting a torrent of serious movie offers followed by a really awkward red carpet interview at Cannes that later leads to sexual assault charges.  It’s possible.  Then again, it’s also possible that Alexsander Emelianenko will be named executive director of the California State Athletic Commission, but we aren’t holding our breath.

Sure he's a shitty actor, but come on, if he actually was a good actor, he'd be out of place in this movie like a Bentley in a trailer park.

LOL at the arm-twist "throw" at the 0:33 mark... WTF was that supposed to be? Looks very damaging. I mean, the guy could bump his head on the floor or something.

"I guess this rules out that remake of "Driving Miss Daisy" I was hoping for."

Driving Mister Titties?

My eyes are bleeding. I think I deserved more of a warning from CagePotato before watching this.

I just don't understand. Both Cecil Peoples and Lester Griffin gave this movie excellent reviews.
Glowskuls- November 28, 2009 at 11:17 pm
Wow, looks like Hollywood found their replacement for Billy Blanks.....
Soon to come: Rampage hocking his Tai Bo workout DVDs w/ special guest Darrill " Titties" Schoonover.

Damn Rampage, still can't check that low leg kick.
Sabado Gigante- November 28, 2009 at 9:23 pm
Something tells me War Machine's acting career might surpass Rampage's in terms of overall success... Shit, WM may even win an award for "best fight scene" for his masterbation efforts in Wankin Warriors 8...

Rampage is so fucked! Bad acting and he's over the fighting hill. He'll be lucky to be bouncing at the titty bar in 2010.
for the love of mma- November 28, 2009 at 6:03 pm
He'll be back fighting!

Warlord: Rampage! What is best in life?

Rampage: Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their doors!

Anyone involved in even the slightest way of this "film" should be banned from making anymore movies or television shows for the rest of their lives.

Jesus the second Mortal Kombat movie was more watchable.

I loved Conan The Barbarian. And that motherfucker ain't exactly Brando either. They will give Rampage as few lines as possible, tell the director to shoot twice as much footage of him so that they can edit the shit out of it, and we will still enjoy the movie. When we rent it.

my eyes and ears wont stop bleeding

Rampage will look much better in the A-Team movie, trust me. A n00b-actor like him with no guidance in a crap-movie with a main-actor that used to train BJ Penn and a director that probably saw a camera up close for the first time...that's what you get. But that A-Team movie is done by pros who will reshoot and hide Quinton's incompetence as often as necessary.
TacoMafia- November 28, 2009 at 12:55 pm
i like how the stomach kicks sound just like the punches to face....
halfbreed23- November 28, 2009 at 12:53 pm
I've seen worse. Guys like Van Damme and Segal have made a good living being terrible actors. The directing and choreography in this clip is awful. I'm sure the A Team production will be much cleaner.
Dubbayoo- November 28, 2009 at 12:37 pm
Even in the movies, Rampage doesn't check leg kicks.
EDoggFunkMonk- November 28, 2009 at 12:06 pm
Sad thing is Rampage's acting is better than P. Diddy's in "A Raisin In The Sun."

Looks like Van Damme did the douche bag's choreography and Richard Grieco dressed him.

johnny cage wins... fatality.
pootytang- November 28, 2009 at 11:55 am
You mean to tell me that was acting? Way to ruin my day, CP!

Seriously though, I wish someone would really snap Rampage's neck. He's a great fighter but that's it.

Oh, and I want the two minutes of my like back.
