Shaq Diesel melts steel beams in the 1997 DC-Comics-inspired-but-not-really action superhero film, STEEL!
Basketball superstar-turned-rapper-turned-actor Shaquille O’Neal stars as John Henry Irons, a weapons engineer for the military that makes super-futuristic laser and sound guns that can make targets crumble. His power-hungry co-worker Nathaniel Burke (Judd Nelson) fires an experimental weapon and causes an accident that paralyzes Irons’ partner, Susan “Sparky” Sparks (Annabeth Gish), and Iron turns Burke in and leaves the weapons game. However, Burke’s out for revenge, and he brings the future weapons to the streets, wreaking havoc and threatening Irons’ home. There’s only one thing to do: Build some armor, hide some electromagnets somewhere, and start swinging a hammer! As superhero Steel, John Henry Irons sets out to take down Burke while delivering some life lessons and a free throw along the way.
