Actor and stuntman Kane Hodder is the man who starred in “Friday the 13th”.th“-Franchise. Hodder made his debut as Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13thth Part VII: The New Blood” and reprized the role three more times until Ken Kirzinger took over the machete for “Freddy vs. Jason”. Hodder, who would later cast Jason for Friday the 13ththvideo game, has also performed or provided stunts for a dizzying array of other killer movies, including Leatherface in Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Victor Crowley in the Hatchet series, and even took hold of Freddy Kruger’s gloved hand “Jason Goes to Hell: The Last Friday.”
In addition to his most famous roles, Hodder has impersonated dozens of other maniacs, tough guys, and obscure characters in films ranging from 2003’s Charlize Theron’s Daredevil and Monster, to House II: The Second Story and 2001 maniacs”. As with most genre pictures, some titles are better than others, but in the case of City Limits, it’s safe to say that most if not all films are better than this 1984 sci-fi picture
City Limits is a post-apocalyptic thriller set in a Los Angeles where a plague has wiped out most adults. “City Limits” features a significant number of up-and-coming cast members, including John Stockwell, Rae Dawn Chong and the future “Independence Day.” Writer/producer Dean Devlin as survivors who formed motorcycle gangs. Kim Cattrall and Robby Benson are also present as members of a mysterious corporation sent to rebuild the city at the bikers’ expense.
Sounds confusing and ill thought out you say? Well, you’re right – and Joel and the bots of Mystery Science Theater 3000 agree, since they torched the film in its original execution – but if you look closely you’ll see Hodder as a member of the DAs, an enemy biker -Gear. Hodder is billed as one of the unfriendly DAs, and with his stocky build and scowl, he’s more believable than anything else in the picture.
