If you’ve never seen ‘Manos: The Hands of Fate,’ don’t worry. I’ve created a venn diagram of your life while watching what has been deemed unequivocally by film theorists as ‘the worst movie ever made.’ There’s no doubt about this. People actually made a career out of watching horrible movies, and from the entire planet’s collection of worthless films, they’ve deemed this work the worst out of the worse. In a sense, if there was a ‘Worst Movie Olympics,’ there would never be a year in which Manos: The Hands of Fate would not get a gold medal.
As you can see from the trailer, Manos: The Hands of Fate is a movie about repeatedly slapping women just before you raid Bootsy Collins’ wardrobe. Manos will teach you how to grow a mustache and laugh at inappropriate times. At the heart of it Manos: The Hands of Fate is romantic comedy, and now it appears MFC light heavyweight champion Ryan Jimmo will be playing a part in the remake of the film, entitled ‘Manos: The Search for Valley Lodge’ which is scheduled to be released in 2013 (that’s if the world is still here). Jimmo made a recent statement about the upcoming film that seems highly appropriate.
“My character, he’s a bad ass dude. He’s got a soft side, but he can kick ass, and he loves smoking cigars – just like I do.”
If only every actor in the film industry nailed their character bio in one brief, concise sentence. Look, we don’t are about the motivation for your character or your method acting. We just want to know: 1.) Will your character be smoking a cigar? and 2.) Will he/she be kicking ass? If you’ve fulfilled those two duties, then may God have mercy on every other supporting actor’s soul.
It’s also reported that five-time Brazilian jiu-jjtsu champion Pedro Carvalho will be coordinating all the action scenes in the film, so it can’t be that bad. You can check out the film’s website here, if you dare.
