4.0 out of 5 stars certainly delivers in the fight sequences, 13 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Damage [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
Damage is sufficiently brutal in the fight sequences to please fans of the genre - it's certainly tough enough. Some of the sequences have a CGI aspect that makes them quite thrilling, even if you're glad it's not you in the ring. There is a real sense of physicality and aggression. It's good to see Steve Austin playing a thoroughly decent guy who is somewhat driven into a corner - although the world it shows is sleazy it is made to look more sympathetic than it by rights should, thanks to a well-nuanced performance from Walton Goggins as his manager, and Laura Vandervoort providing a glamour that is, again, sweeter than it probably ought to be ... I bought the film for Goggins who stars in a film called Red Dirt that couldn't be more different from this one, and the role is likewise at opposite poles, right to the rather constrained hug at the end. He has a brilliant screen face! In comparison, Austin does not have anything like the same ability to express emotion but this works oddly well by contrast, and is very suited to the internalised character he plays, who can nonetheless scrap with the best of them.
