“I read some of the other reviews, and I concluded they must be by the fembot, art history major, wanna be a critic crowd. This is a straight up action film, with much of the action meaty hand to hand fighting. And it does a good job of portraying the fact that most such combat is pretty brutal.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are girls, they are beautiful, one is deadly, the other is lovely. The roles they play are secondary.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDolph has aged a lot, and unless it is the makeup, I think not to well. But he continues to carry the style he has shown in several recent action movies, as a menacing, brooding threat. From the outset we are aware he is a threat, but the relationship of this threat to the main protagonist is not clear.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFor me, Steve Austen was a pleasant surprise. I recall another of his movies, and he was not good at all. This was much better, and the director played to all his strengths in respect of both his verbal and action abilities.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere were several little plot twists, and a few surprises along the way, which added to the enjoyment.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere are a number of recognizable supporting characters, which is also a pleasant surprise.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSo my conclusion is that if you are hunting around for an action movie one night with some time to kill, this movie is for consideration. No, its not Gladiator, or Star Wars, or the Avengers, or Saving Private Ryan, but thank god, its not Brokeback Mountain or some other drivel either. Its a decent regular budget action movie. Take it for what it is and you will be fine.”
