His nickname is "Bulletproof," due to his uncanny ability to survive gunshot wounds that would have been fatal for anyone else. McBain will need whatever luck he can muster as he journeys to the Mexican border to recover the super-tank, put legions of well-armed opponents into the ground and rescue his ex-girlfriend, Devon (Darlanne Fluegel).

      william s You've seen this before done better. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Dumb but entertaining. Gary Busey calls bad guys "butthorn" a lot of times...and he got the nickname "Bulletproof" because he's been shot 39 times in the line of duty...that should give you an idea for what it's going for. This would be a complete disaster if it took itself seriously. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member McBain!!!!! Gary Buses is special agent Frank McBain who is charged with stopping a group of terrorist, led by Henry Silva, from getting their hands on a new super tank. The film plays out like your typical A-Team episode and really isn't that much better, except that the film is populated with a stellar cast of character actors (many of who actually appeared on "The A-Team") including L.Q. Jones, René Enríquez, Mills Watson, R.G. Armstrong, Luke Askey, Danny Trejo, and my favorite character actor of all-time, the great William Smith who's screen presence and gravelly voice is just amazing. There's even more faces you'll recognize and that's really the only charm of this film, which is really pretty awful. Two stars for the eclectic cast, but nothing else. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Stuffed full of stereotyped baddies, clunky dialogue, massive plotholes, action clichés, a high body count, and three masterful uses of the insult 'butt-horn', Bulletproof still offers 90-minutes of mindless entertainment that can easily crouch down beside the likes of Schwarzenegger's Raw Deal or Stallone's Cobra. (http://gbtimes.com/life/gary-busey-bulletproof) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Now that's the stuff. Unlike Cobra, Bulletproof takes the staid cop drama formula and jumps the shark with it. We have Busey delivering some of the best lines in action movie history: Standard drug dealer: "Who the fuck is that?" Busey: "Your worst nightmare, butthorn!" Yes. Butthorn. I have no idea what that is, but Busey uses it at least twice in the course of the film before killing people, so I guess it's pretty bad. I credit the filmmakers here for making the McGuffin not something boring like illegal drugs or guns or something, but something totally ridiculous and bad ass: a secret government robo-tank stolen by a Libyan general in Mexico. This movie is unforgettable. I own it. You should too! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member No need for backup, McBain is a cop who has been shot 39 times by the end of this movie. "Bulletproof" gets recalled by the CIA to recover a prototype tank that has fallen into the hands of a terrorist cell comprised of an odd collection of Mexicans, Nicaraguans, Soviets, and Arabs. I was half expecting to see some French Canadian separatists to be thrown into the mix. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
