Not bad for Dolph...
on 22 May 2006
An above average Dolph movie, which, if you know nothing of the comic book (and I didn't until i saw the 2004 remake, which is, in places, a rather sanitised version) will keep you entertained as long as you aren't expecting an acting masterclass.
But my best advice to you is to read the review of the person just several places below me here. You'll know it instantly - the one with the numbered list of "mistakes" the makers of this film made. Hilarious. Atrocious spelling apart, I now have a good idea of what movie magazines refer to when they mention the "fanboys" who feel the need to pick holes in every aspect of the movie adaptions of comic books. Some people really have no grip on reality...
Sorry if you were expecting more of a dissection of the movie itself - but it's Dolph Lundgren, so it does what it says on the box. Remember, it's just an escapist action movie - not a monument to the ages. Worth a rental fee, but i would suggest spending your hard-earned money on a couple of decent books.
