The Stabilizer aka Rambu II: The Stabilizer (1986)

The sole reason behind the existence of this movie is the fast that couple of Indian producers (Punjabi Brothers) found a random dude (Peter O’Brian) who looks incredibly like young Silvester Stallone and seeing the potential in that they gave him a couple martial art lesson and shipped him to Indonesia to star in a string of lo- fi action flicks. If you expect the result to be unwatchable you are deadly wrong- combination of Indonesian locations, terrible acting, dedicated stunt-work and the incredible amount of (random) shit blowing up made this a hell of a good time and a WIN in my book.It even attracted the legendary Troma Entertainment that acted as a distributor for USA.

ST1Never gets old…

Couple agents greet almost mystical figure at the airport- that is Peter Goldson “The Stabilizer”. We learn that he is called that way because of his unique ability to restore the balance between the good and the evil (now, you’ve got to admit that is unique). He joins them to help solve the case of disappearance of Doctor Probos (fantastic name for a scientist). Only couple minutes into the movie and we get a deadly car chase that also incorporates a moment when they steal a car from the man pissing just outside of the road. Surviving that agents go on a briefing and here we learn that the main man behind the local organized crime (and Doctor Probos disappearance) is none other than Greg Rainmaker. By coincidence the same man that raped and murdered Stabilizer’s fiance. And you bet- there will be some revenging done pretty soon.

The Stabilizer.mp4_000674140Blond 80’s chick proves without any doubt that it was Rainmaker’s golden triangle bang behind the ambush.
She also does that with these earings.

We get to see a bit of torture and electrocution just to prove how evil Golden Triangle really is. They also trie another hit on Stabilizer (this time using a fake performer in a bar) but it doesn’t really pan out for them and Goldson retaliates with a bust of one of their operations. He also meets Doctor Probos’s daughter, funny large headed woman there- it seems she is a ninja with a crosbow in her free time.

After some back and forth agents finally decide to let Probos’s daughter join them (not really in line with the regulations and protocols but who cares) and movie gets to it’s romantic part (yes- there is a romantic part in here). Goldson decides to probe miss Probos and his partner decides to take on a fellow agent- ’80s blond chick. Of course their down time doesn’t last long and they quickly gather for one more action- raid on Rainmaker’s villa. Despite the action being somewhat out of control with their knowledge of Martial Arts and creative use of motorcycles and flamethrower (you’ll see) agents prevail.

Also notice Indonesian Mr. T in there…

Unfortunately Probos dies all the same. Combined with the fact that Rainmaker escaped (to his personal island fortress) we get another final action. Interesting fact the Act III of this movie has at least three parts. So, our agents get going (again), they raid Rainmaiker’s lair and wreak havoc but Rainmaker prevails and like a true villain puts them in the basely escapable situation and leaves before actually seeing them die. That blows up in his face (also the fact that he tried to get rid of his whore who comes after him with a machine gun- joining our heroes). After absolute craziness of a chase he decides that it’s time to just give up and escape by air but The Stabilizer had other plans.

The End

Verdict: Now the only question that bugs me is the fact that the purpose of Peter Goldson is to be “The Stabilizer”. So if scales are tipped on the side of the good- would that make him a bad guy? I’ll leave you with this guestion…

Trivia: Also When Rainmaker attacked the poor girl you could see this hanging in the background. Now I know a girl can have a picture of her fiancee on the wall but that kind of picture!?
