Once you know the backstory, you can't help being sympathetic to Heemeyer. He was a true working class hero.
Thank God for resubmits. I have been wanting to see this forever. It's been worth the wait.
he died exactly how he lived, inside a bulldozer.
|Corman's Inferno |
Again: Heemeyer may be gone, but the spirit of Killdozer is eternal.
Better than the best action movies EVER. It's tragic (well, good for what was left of the city I guess) that it was a stupid engine overheat which cost him his success.

Gets stars added for resubmitting this on it's third anniversary.
|Billy the Poet |
Some say Heemeyer died that day. Some say they hauled the Killdozer away and crushed it. Some even believe it. I know better. You can't kill a Killdozer with a bullet any more than you coulda strung up Jesse James with string. Sleep well, Granby, Colorado.
June 4th. Never forget.
After Killdozer, every idiot who throws rocks at police looks like a sissy with zero commitment.
Fuck killdozer. The dude lost a zoning dispute and reacted like a child... with his own rifle-studded armored bulldozer. Way to knock over that old lady's house dude! You really fought the power!
Youíre absolutely right Zato, I really donít understand people today, they mock and spit on Jesusí name when all he wanted was us to stop fighting and learn to love and care for each other, and yet... they praise a man who knocked over a few houses and committed suicide like a coward!
If you have a better way to leave this earth than welding yourself into a homemade tank and going on a rampage, I'd like to hear it.
something hit a little too close to home, hmm zatojones?
You live on in our hearts, Heemeyer.
he was an hero
What an asshole.
Are you people fucking crazy
Why are you giving killdozer one star
Jesus christ I wish I could drive over your house right now
|Spit Spingola |
Like Blast Corps only in real life.
I dreamed I saw Killdozer last night, alive as you and me.
Said I, "But Marvin, you're three years dead."
"I never died," said he. "I never died," said he.
And standing there big as life, and smiling with his face,
Said Marv, "What they can never kill
Went on to bulldoze the place, went on to bulldoze the place."
I love the construction equipment faceoff, its so beautiful.
|Testicles of Doom |
4 stars because it's a good video, but this dude sucked. Trashing people's shit is not cool, and killing yourself is the ultimate selfish act.
|Albuquerque Halsey |
They see me ridin'
and also...why did he not surrender? if he set up a legal defense fund after being captured, every sardonic asshole on the planet would be sending him a ten spot.
Why didn't he surrender?! Have you gone mad? Did Braveheart surrender? Did Mel Gibson surrender to "sugar tits" after getting pulled over for drunk driving? NO! This guy wasn't a quitter.

Not "A Timeless Classic" it's THE timeless POE-TV Classic
|Caminante Nocturno |
This is the stuff legends are made out of.
|Your Mother |
There are not enough stars in the universe for Killdozer.
Holy crap. And here I thought the odd "killdozer" reference I saw was just some obscure horror movie I'd never heard of.
You can tell the narrating policeman has a lot of secret admiration for Killdozer.
Attention everybody that gave this one star: WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU???
|Rodents of Unusual Size |
Because one starring an amazing clip makes sense! He was an asshole so he doesn't deserve stars! Wait, no, you people are just star faggots.
it reminded me of the end of that joe pesci movie but a million times better.
|Spastic Avenger |
That is how I will die, but it will be a ship.
Living the dream.
Beats Robot Wars, that's for sure.
And Dusty Rhodes billed himself as the American Dream.
Heeymeyer was just a common man working hard with his hands =)
