I have something to say...

Post by Cowboy Is Cool »

... about Cowboy. Here we go:

Alright, first- Cowboy is almost always considered to be a wimp. I've got something to say about that. Most people say he's a wimp just because he got knocked down right away in the Furies fight. Well, I'd like to see you run miles through Riverside Park and still fight like you normally would. THE GUY WAS TRYING TO CATCH HIS BREATH! Now, many people will say that Ajax did all that and still fought, but he was probably so ready for a fight that he didin't care about cathcing his breath.

Also, if you look closely in the background during the fight, you can see Cowboy moving around on the ground alot. That shows me that he was trying to get up to help his buddies, but was too hurt and exhausted.

Second- the Punks fight. Almost every Warrior is shown getting hit by a Punk at least once- except for Cowboy! That shows me that Walter Hill wanted to put emphasis on Cowboy's amazing fighting skills. Who saves Swan when he is getting repeatedly sucker-punched? Cowboy. Who takes down the leader? Cowboy. Who breaks a bat into a Punk's stomach? Cowboy. In all, he took out 3 Punks, out of the 10 that were there. Finally, people might say, "Hey! So what he took down the leader? The leader was a wimp!" The Punks leader was definitely a soldier. He took spray paint right to the eyes, took one mean punch from Rembrandt, and got beaten up by Snow, but he still kept coming. Snow wasn't able to waste him, but Cowboy did.

All very good points. Cowboy's always been one of my favorites, and he's so under appreciated, good job, soldier.

Well, I'm sorry that Cowboy is my favorite Warrior, and I'm just voicing my opinion.

And you can do that, but in spite of the fighting he does in the Punks fight, he really never does anything else spectacular throughout the entire film. No offence to you or your opinion or anything.

And is it just me or does it seem like Cowboy has his own cult following now.

Yes, he does, but so does every Warrior now! Anyways, he really wasn't presented with any other opportunities to be spectacular besides running, which he does well, and the Furies fight, which he was exhausted for.

You have many good points Cowboy is cool and i respect that you think of Cowboy so fondly, heck i think he is pretty tough. He does get knocked down quite a bit but he is still tough. I think that the movie wasn't very focuseed on Cowboys skills and did not show him much but he is still p[retty strong..

I think Cowboy is my 3 favourite warrior and i Aplaud you for picking Cowboy in your name instead of Ajax Or Swan or somthing like that.

Some good points! I agree strongly, I think cowboy is a very underrated warrior. Unlike Ajax, he is actually smart, but also dedicated. When Ajax is being arrested, Cowboy moves towards the police, probably in a desperate attempt to free Ajax. But Snow holds him back.

ANd yeah, Cowboy does kick a lot of ass in the bathroom brawl as well.
SUPER HAPPY PINEAPPLE MAN!

I'm not going to come in here and say Cowboy is the best Warrior out of them all because he isn't, hell none of them should be labeled the best because they all have flaws, yet once you put all 9 of them together they have more pros then cons and that's what makes them the best.

I think Walter Hill wanted to give rembrandt and cowboy some credibility, so in the punks fight they did kick some ass.  The problem with cowboy is that he's established as a weak link early in the movie when he says to Vermin "If we're wearin our colors we can't hide."  When vermin responds "Who wants to hide?", you can kind of see the look of disgust on his face.

Cowboy was good in the punks fight, but did you ever notice when he punches the punks leader , his hand shakes after the punch like he's never fought before in his life.

I noticed that, but Swan's hand does the same thing during the Furies fight.

I don't think you should be comming down on cowboy that much, if he really couldn't fight then he wouldn't be in the warriors at all.So maybe he couldn't fight like ajax, but not all of them could.

Cowboy is no the best Warriors. Definatly not. But on another note, he has an unbelievably awesome hat, and comes out with a few good lines, which are some of my favourites. Such as :

"Those were some desperate dudes!" (Vermin)
"Hey so was we!"

I love that line Lol. And when he says "Shit I wish we was packed".....I dunno, theres just something about the way he says it is pretty cool. Cowboy cannot fight too well either, I admit. I think just his overall personality makes him cool. And that toothpick at the start makes him look pretty cool lol
