“Caught this at a theater near by and I have to say that I did enjoy this. It wasnu0026#39;t great or even u0026quot;really goodu0026quot; but it was better than most of JCVDu0026#39;s other dtv movies(excluding US3 and Replicant)…and better than some of his later theatrical movies(Street Fighter,Double Team,Knock Off, Unisol:The Return). I think putting it on the same level as Wake of Death is pretty fair. I actually may have liked this a little more since it didnu0026#39;t feature the dopey MTV edits that WOD had. The acting was pretty solid all around for the most part. JCu0026#39;s son, Krisu0026#39; character(Schell) was extremely pointless in my opinion…not to mention he sucked in it. Felt like he was reading his lines the entire movie. I really liked JC and Adkinu0026#39;s chemistry together. They played off each other really well but I was left wanting to see more of them sharing the screen. There were a few aspects I didnu0026#39;t care for but I donu0026#39;t want to spoil anything. Production wise, the movie looks pretty good considering the budget. Itu0026#39;s well directed and shot. Good music score too. However, I actually feel like it would have made for a better at home experience than a theatrical one. The sepia tone actually looked a little blurred on the big screen during some of the wide shots…and I did find myself craving a little color. Close ups looked good though. All in all, it was a pretty good movie. This gives me hope for The Butcher. If Ernie Barbarash had a little more money to work with, heu0026#39;d do a hell of a job. 3/5”
