Vision Quest Reviews
Great soundtrack, realistic wrestling, catchy one liners.
Great characters in the movie, wrestlers, coaches, Elmo. The girlfriend is a small flaw, not a great actress.
The music is awesome. Journey, Foreigner, Madonna, Sammy Hagar, etc. And not just good tunes, but they all seemed to fit in well with the story.
While Cox was good as the dad, I felt like Daphne Zuniga and Forest Whitaker were pretty wasted, and I know they weren't huge names back then, but even their roles were kind of dull. Madonna shows up and sings a few songs at one point too.
I also liked how the 'bad guy' he had to wrestle in the end wasn't a bad guy cliche, as he was actually quite nice, just the better wrestler!
