Wait a minute? No such thing as a good Joe Don Baker movie? Have they seen Cape Fear? He was in it I believe as a cop, and got his throat slashed later in that movie By Robert Di Niro's character. Shrugging, I can still consider that a good Joe Don Baker movie. Yeah...I'm sorry but yeah.

You've got to love Geronimo's mindless morality: "The law must be upheld, but there's a lot of bad people who skirt the law or twist it to their own purposes. So people like me need to work outside the law, or nudge it a little bit to make sure that our particular agendas and priorities are met. It's really pretty simple."

The director of Final Justice, Greydon Clark, also directed episode 622's movie, Angel's Revenge. He also wrote and directed the movie Uninvited. If you've never seen it, you need to. It's about a poisonous cat-within-a-cat creature who terrorizes a crime lord's yacht because one of his bimbos brought it onboard. Makes for great riffing fodder.

Just finished it and, you know, this wasn't that bad of a film. Mitchell was more of a beer-drinking fat slob, but here the "Geronimo" character was goofy yet not entirely unlikable. I dunno, this didn't work for me.

You know what's wrong with this movie (besides that, that, and that)? It's how Sheriff Geronimo keeps correcting people on the pronunciation of his name. It would be one thing if they were trying and failing to say "Goyathlay" or "Goyahkla," but no; he's telling a bunch of Maltese and Italian speakers the "correct" way to pronounce the Spanish version of Jerome.

And that pretending medieval guard had a real javelin or spear? Hate it when the DnD or reenactment geeks use real weapons for their live action games or shows. They're not toys and can hurt or even kill people as this is what they are designed for. There are real incidence of this too.

I know I'm in the minority but I like this movie better than Mitchel; I liked the movie better and it has some of the best riffs like "you're gonna have to grease me and push me through here".

You were SOOO nice to let the crew riff on some non-SF movies for their last go 'round; just think, if you hadn't, I probably never would have had to sit through ANOTHER crappy Joe Don Baker movie! Thank you SOOOO much!!

Final Justice is a good movie in the way that chicken fried steak is a nutritious breakfast. I mean yeah sure at first it looks good, but it pretty soon becomes apparent that it's mostly just filler and saturated fat.

I can't lie: it was genuinely surprising and exciting when Geronimo cut short his catchphrase to shoot the guy at the end. It's a really good way to pay off a running thing.

The chase scene in this movie (the one with the boat chase) is comparable to the pod-racing scene in Star Wars: Episode I. It's long, repetitive and adds nothing to the plot, even in terms of pointless action movies. Incidentally, Mike and Kevin have to suffer through the pod-racing scene on Rifftrax. Ugh!
