COMIC BOOK POSTER  

 
Jushin Liger Fist of Thunder
 
(1995) direct-to-video movie
 
Directed by:
Wada Takuya

Genre:
Action + Horror

Synopsis:
Liger is the dominant junior in New Japan here, but finally may have met his match as the evil gaijin Bounty Viper is brought in for a Super Triangle Match that also involves Liondo Wolf (Shinjiro Otani). Both Liger and Viper have special powers, but Viper abuses his. He faces Wolf in the first part of the Super Triangle, and mames him on purpose. This sets up Liger vs. Viper for the championship, but they wind up leaving the ring and fighting in some deserted street so they can transform into their monster selves without anyone seeing them. At this point it turns into a special effects movie with the two awesome looking monsters battling to the death. Yuji Nagata, Tatsuhito Takaiwa, Satoshi Kojima, Manabu Nakanishi, and ring announcer Tanaka are the other New Japan employees that appear in the movie. Liger plays himself when he's in full costume (so he does all the wrestling and such), but to protect Keiichi Yamada's identity (and probably have a better dramatic movie) they have an actor play Liger when he's not wearing the mask.
