Product Description

Product Description

Pro wrestling legend Steve Austin stars as a man with no name, no memory and absolutely nothing left to lose. But when he finds himself hunted by both the FBI and the Russian mob, this amnesiac decides to fight back. Pursuit cannot stop him. Torture will not break him. And with every beating, bullet and betrayal, he ll remember another piece of the horror that took away his career, his family and his identity. Now the puzzle is nearly complete, and one man is about to take back his past... by ending a whole lot of futures. Erica Cerra (Eureka) and Adam Beach (Flags Of Our Fathers) star in this explosive action-thriller about collateral damage, stone cold vengeance, and a double-crossed killing machine known only as THE STRANGER.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Wow - just watched this - really disappointing. From the opening seconds after hitting play this looked low quality, from the way the fonts on the opening credits look, to the visual effects used in the background - it all said "cheap" to me. I couldn't believe it when the credits said this was a 2010 film, the production and effects looked like something from 10-20 years back.

Look, I love Austin from his WWF/WWE days but this is a really poor use of him. The story here is that an agent is involved in an operation to uncover a mole and ends up losing his memory, but actually goes into a state where he makes up who he is, along with a backstory, and then every so often that changes, and he thinks he's someone else. This doesnt really get shown in the film though, Austin just comes across as some dumb confused meathead who can't remember what he did yesterday. There are flashback sequences tat knit together as the film goes on and come together in the end, these are not well done though, it's obvious what the end picture is much too early on - it should click into place all in the final sequence - but it's obvious much too early on and you're just waiting for the film - and Austin's character - to catch up to what you've known for at least half the film. This is a low budget, poorly made film - albeit one with a half-decent story - that Austin would have done well to avoid.

I can't think of anyone to recommend this to, even hardcore Austin fans may not be happy with this. It's like a weak, poor, low-budget Bourne Identity but with Austin as the main character. He doesnt even go properly mental in it and open a can of whoopass on anyone, he just gets a bit action-hero on occasions without that feeling of Stone Cold Steve Austin smashing someone up.

Really sad to say it but this is weak and not worth your money.

Even though I'm a WWE (and Austin fan) I can't say I had high expectations for this one. Austin and his ilk have a habit of making average action movies which usually come with a decent synopsis and trailer. As you think `this one might actually be good' you are inevitably disappointed. It takes a lot these days to make an entertaining action movie- the fact is that we have seen it all before, especially hardened fans who grew up with the classics of the 80s and 90s. It takes something groundbreaking to really catch our imaginations now, a la The Matrix. That's not to say that filmmakers should stop trying- if you have a decent plot, interesting characters, and a talented case then go for it.

The main issue here is that of the aforementioned trilogy of criteria, each one is only partly met. We have the standard `man with amnesia wants answers and revenge' plot (Bourne Trilogy), we have stock characters with little motivation or background, and we have a cast of mostly unknown actors led by a director who is best known commercials. To say there is a lack of substance would show a lack of critical analysis. So from the start we are shooting for average- anything better would be quite an achievement.

Austin can easily hold an audience when in the ring, but on camera, following a script, the problems mount up. He does his best here, but he isn't in the ranks of Arnie, Stallone, etc. The script is merely a series of words with little flourish laid out so that the plot can reach its conclusion. The only thing of interest is the way that the back story is revealed slowly throughout the movie, although it is done with a lack of skill leaving the viewer bemused or bored.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
While it's not going to win any awards even from the most easygoing action fans, 2009's The Stranger gets over a bumpy start and some clumsy expositionary dialogue to turn into an efficient and undemanding action movie that does exactly what it says on the tin: allows WWF wrestler Steve Austin to hit a lot of people in plenty of fight scenes. While it's not exactly the most taxing of parts, despite looking at times like Gordon Liddy on steroids Austin's got just enough screen presence to carry the role of an undercover agent with a bad case of the flashbacks who's lost his memory and sporadically moves between false identities while Adam Beach's FBI man and Erica Cerra's psychiatrist try to bring him in, and there's just enough plot to hold the film together between scenes of him hitting people until the drawn out and unimpressive ending. The production values aren't exactly high, with some lazily lit digital photography that unintentionally loses faces in shadow, fairly low-tech action scenes and inconsistent supporting performances that could have benefited from an another take here and there, but as Bourne ripoffs go (and this thankfully doesn't have wildly over the top shakeycam going against it), despite the extremely poor ending it passes an hour-and-a-half surprisingly well if you're not expecting too much.

Anchor Bay's DVD has a reasonable widescreen transfer considering the limitations of the source but is short on extras - just a trailer and a very brief featurette where the director congratulates himself on improving the original ending - which must mean either he's excessively self-confident or that what was in the script was really bad...
