If you have seen any of Steve Austins previous movies,of which he has been the star,you'll have a pretty good idea of what to expect from this one,his latest offering.If you havn't seen any,he makes action packed,testosterone charged action films,that sacrifice plot and logic for shoot outs and punch ups.Nothing wrong with that,Arnie built his career on it.We live in an unjust world,so its good to see the good guy emerge triumphant,and the bad guys getting what they deserve,even if it is just a work of fiction.So on that level this film works brilliantly,there is action a plenty,all of it is well staged and pretty brutal,the body count is sky high,and its great to see Dolph Lundgren chewing up the scenery.What hampers it is the daft as a brush storyline,which even when the big reveal comes at the end,doesn't make any kind of sence,as it tries to justify whats been going on.There is far fetched,and then beyond that there is this.
Mr Austins fans are going to love it,as a switch your brain off before viewing action film its hard to fault,and I would have given it 4 stars,but the mad twist,for me,was just that one step too far.
