Stone Cold doing what he does best
on 11 March 2014
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.
