Bibbo’s B-Movies: STEEL (1997) Review (feat. Stuart Mulrain)

November 21, 2022

WELCOME TO BIBBO'S B-MOVIES! Home of the lesser-loved (and just generally lesser) superhero movies of yesteryear! Rob and Alan shepherd in this new side-show with the help of long time friend of the podcast Stuart Mulrain from 'And Why Not' and this week we're haphazardly freethrowing our thoughts and takes regarding the ill-fated "STEEL" movie from 1997 starring none other than Shaquille O'Neal and directed by 'Incredible Hulk' alum Kenneth Johnson.

 

Why does Steel look like he bought his armour at Party City? What has John Henry Irons got against veterans' hospitals? Do Superman and Batman exist in this world? Who designed Judd Nelson's insane leather jacket? All of these questions and more are discussed and disseminated in a decidedly ruder ep than usual (possibly not one for the kiddos!)
