On Deadly Ground

Synopsis: Forrest Taft is an environmental agent who works for the Aegis Oil Company in Alaska. Aegis Oil's corrupt CEO, Michael Jennings, is the kind of person who doesn't care whether or not oil spills into the ocean or onto the land, just as long as it's making money for him. He even makes commercials that make him look like he cares about the environment. Jennings is almost finished with building his new state-of-the art oil rig: AEGIS-1. The problem is that if he doesn't finish building the rig in thirteen days, the land rights will be returned to the Eskimos and the Alaskan government. When Jennings finds out that Taft's best friend Hugh Palmer has a computer disk that contains information about defective equipment on AEGIS-1, he sends out his goons to murder Palmer. When Taft tries to interfere, Jennings tries to kill Taft. But an Eskimo woman named Masu, who introduces Taft to her father Silook, the chief of her tribe, rescues Taft. With Masu's help, Taft begins a trek through the Alaska

why Jennings made me use them anyway...

check out the requisition file on Aegis-1.

Go ahead.

You got the clearance.

I can't get in there, but you can.

Check it out, then we'll talk.

Listen to me.

I left my daypack and some weapons

at your place.

I think I'll pick them up

and go up into the hills.

They're in the closet, just get them.

- Upstairs closet?

- Yeah.

Hey, Mike. Check it out: Cupcake's date!

Come on, Cupcake.

Don't cry. What happened?

Did your boyfriend leave you?

You know, Pocahontas is still available.

Cupcake's dream date!



This way.

You still want that brew? I'll get it for you.

No hard feelings?

Come on.

Buck up for the suds, pal.

All right, here.

Mutt, get out. You piece of shit.

Come on.

Now, who're we gonna play with now?

Don't break anything, understand?

You wanna play with me?

You want a piece of this?

I'm afraid I'll fuckin' kill him.

Let's get outta here. Come on.

Oh, shit!


I've got you!

Well, let's see, that's Natives: 8,

and Oil Workers:

Anybody else want to play with Cupcake?

Take him on.

My nuts!

Hey, buddy.

Don't be fucking with oil workers.

My balls!

You're a man, right?

This guy doesn't have a fuckin' clue.

Are you a man?

Oh, Jesus.

Am I a man?

Yeah. I got a big pair of balls

right between my legs.

Did you use those to beat up

on this little native man?

Big balls, okay.

We'll play a little game,

the hand-slap game.

One man leaves the circle.

I miss, you get a shot.

You miss, I get a shot.

All right, I'll play your game...

if you play my game.

I'll play your game afterwards,

if I'm still standing.

Because you're a tough guy...

and you got big balls.

All right.

Don't hurt him, Forrest!

Here we go, Mr. Big Balls.

- I'm ready.
