Barb Wire (1996) (part 7 of 11)

Cut back to Clint’s Bail Bonds business. His three beefy goons talk trash to each other over a game of poker. I’d mention the multi-ethnic makeup of the goons, as well as the Stone Cold Steve Austin-like properties of one of them, but it would all be wasted, because Congressional soldiers quickly enter and waste all three of them.

The soldiers are called to attention as Col. Pryzer and Chief Willis enter. Willis quips he makes the “occasional arrest without slaughter!” Pryzer turns to one soldier and calls him “incompetent”, because they needed to “make an interrogation”. I’m not sure how a command to “interrogate” got turned into “walk in and bloodily massacre everybody instantly”, but I’d say there was a serious breakdown in communication somewhere in the Congressional army.

The soldier says that they “resisted”, meaning, I guess, that they resisted not breathing anymore. So, yeah, that’s accurate. Willis discovers that Clint Howard is not here. However, they do discover a mugshot of Krebs and realize he can’t be far.

Col. Pryzer declares he needs one of the bodies of the big beefy guys. “Preferably,” he says, “One without a head wound!” There’s a cut to black, along with a “pounding” sound effect that will very quickly grow on our nerves.
