    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.

    New York Times

    As cartoonish as its star.

    Washington Post

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

    Hogan as The Ripper is a force of nature here, and he makes "No Holds Barred" in to a fun action cartoon.

    People Magazine

    May 29, 2013

    Racist, misogynist, dumb, sadistic, lazy and tiresome, the film is about a big bout between a huge heroic white guy and a huge villainous black guy.

    Philadelphia Daily News

    May 29, 2013

    The final showdown between Rip and Zeus is overlong and full of uninspired wrestling stunts. The camera crews of the World Wrestling Federation do a much better job.

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel

    While wrestling fans surely will queue up to see their boy win the day, No Holds Barred is just a sweaty headlock of a film, with dreary, gory scenes and a bunch of slope-headed hokum to propel it.

    Some may find the cartoonish violence excessive; the champion Tough Guy can't be anyone but a good guy, but that doesn't stop him from doling out to his enemies a very painful punishment.

    Barred is tremendously crude, unapologetically manipulative (Zeus finally breaks down Rip's reserve by crippling his kid brother), and aimed directly at easily entertained 13-year-old boys.
