in comparison to steve austins other films i would rank this amongst the best of them! not sure why other reviewers are being so harsh with 1 star! good action fight scenes, austin is kicking ass like you expect, hardly any cheesy dialogue. in short its austin out for revenge against the people who killed his family.

not as good as the condemned, better than hunt to kill and damage in my opinion....very enjoyable just to switch your mind off too

I am coming to the rescue of this film ,ignore the 1 star rating ,as I have seen
this (U.S IMPORT (Blu-ray) ,I really enjoyed this film ,the action is perfect for this type of film ,and I dont have a problem with 'Steve Austin's or Danny Trejo's
ability to entertain as this is the film style they do best .Danny (The Mex) Trejo
is great in this (Check him out in Machete) ,and I dont understand why some reviewers always have it in for 'Steve Austin' he may be a wrestler but he can act
and pull off a great action film (Check him out in Tactical Force).
Buy it when its available in the U.K on April 16th ,and Yes! I am a Fan of both these guys ,and have a need to set the balance right in the ratings ,5+++++ for this film,BUY ,or Danny and Steve will be after you!!!
Kind regards Barry.

An ok B-level action movie. Everything about this film is just ok. They had Stone Cold looking mean and always ready to kick someone’s @$$ but that is about it. The plot is pretty simple almost punisher style. Austin’s family is a cop whose family is killed; the killers assumed that they killed him as well. There mistake is they did not check so no fuelled by vengeance he leaves the force to punish the killers. Tracking them to a town called Hope he sees a town in the grip of a biker gang. Never one for subtlety or to shy from a fight he introduces himself. Not many big explosions but quite a few fights, the 15 age rating was probably more for the bad language they any violence in the film.

In the first 5 minutes you see Austin take a head butt without flinching, which looks cool but he keeps the same expression and attitude during all the fight scenes, the most expression out of his is a grunt when he gets stabbed. After a half an hour of this it gets repetitive and boring. The Biggest waste in the movie was Keith Jardine's part. Stone Cold is a big guy Keith is just as big and with more actual (mix)martial arts skills to bring to the table, and the one fight they cut out of the movie is the one between these two, everyone else in the film including Danny Trejo is half the size of Steve Austin so yes you can see him throwing these guys around like rag dolls, then you have someone who is perfect for the final fight but you put Trejo in when they can't even be shown in the same frame together because of the size difference.

This is an ok action film to watch but don't expect anything great surprising or different from it. It is Steve Austin playing a Stone Cold vigilante.

Format: DVD
The film opens with some slow metal music, and is perhaps a grindhouse "light." Ryan Varrett (Steve Austin) "sneaks" around in a Dodge GTX muscle machine, cruising Washington State (Seagal's territory). He plays a vigilante ex-cop who goes after the bad guys who killed his family and any other bad guys who know them. (Don't try this at home.) The film mixes dry humor with stone cold action. The first kill is a man hunting rabbits with an automatic weapon. He misses a bunny at about 10 yards. Austin crushes his neck and tosses him off a cliff. The cops describe the body as "abstract art." Austin has flashbacks to the killing (happens before movie starts) and the police are searching for the bunny killer. These provide a very minor subplot.

A waitress remarks, "Canada, not much up that way but Canada." I am laughing at the dialouge and I haven't figured out if the comedy is intentional. Austin ends up in Hope, Washington. "Hope" is a common name for symbolism or irony...normally from writers who couldn't come up with something better, or if they did, wouldn't think their audience could grasp it. Serinda Swan plays Darcy the local motel owner. She is a widow who smokes, drinks JD, and knows muscle machines.

Austin makes friends with the local bike club known as "The Circle" when he beats up a member who threatened to shoot a puppy (I love this stuff). Danny Trejo, in one of his "rare" bad guy appearances, plays the Drayke, the gang leader. Noel Gugliemi as Rex did a great job as a gang member. The gang has hobbies such as cage matches with electrified fences, drug manufacturing, and town terrorizing. It is the typical movie gang, one that runs guns but fights with tools. Stone Cold has other hobbies.

I enjoyed this action film.

This film is ok is every sense of the word. The story is ok but totally predictable, the fight scenes are ok and fairly graphic, the acting is ok but never going to win any oscars, definitely the high point for me is a snarling, badass Danny Trejo who is often typecast in these kind of roles but that's because he plays them well and certainly has a 'don't mess with me' kind of face. Not the sort of film I'd want to watch all the time, but it passed 90 mindless minutes which was just what I wanted at the time.
