The movie never takes itself seriously and director Tom Wright (TV's "Beauty and the Beast") has fun with the wrestling montages. Hogan himself has an appealing screen presence -- like a gallant teddy bear who goes berserk every 10 minutes or so.

Maybe we should mention that the gruesome violence in the movie was enough to make this adult wince.

For months now, Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro have been sitting in their dens and nervously clutching their Oscars. They knew that an unprecedented challenge was looming... the arrival of Hulk Hogan in his first starring role in a movie.

The film is utterly lacking in the campy quality of the World Wrestling Federation telecasts.

Charmless, stupid and badly made, No Holds Barred makes Rocky look like Citizen Pain.
