One of the worst movies ever


I figured since Steve Austin has some experience in front of the cameras he would be a somewhat decent actor. Jokes. His acting is stiff, one dimensional and boring.

The movie itself looks like it was edited in sony vegas. The music is as cheesy as the acting. The story is boring. Don't waste your time on this terrible "movie"

Is kind of one-dimensional. Did you see him "act" all paniced when his boss died. Terrible.

Very bad. I knew the acting was going to be bad when the movie started off and Austin was simply reading the script as the narrator. No passion whatsoever. What a stinker!

The storyline was great. And my boyfriend & I did enjoy the movie but... the fighting was a little cheesy. Every single fight was about him almost getting knocked out then coming back as the glory non-stop fighter. The last fight was good but wasn't great. It could have been better. Some of the acting I didn't care for.

this movie was really cheesy & cheap (as I expected it to be). Like a daytime soap opera with violence. But I had to like it a little cause I was such a big 'Stone Cold' fan as a kid.

It was a very low budget movie with a cast of names probably no one has even heard of. So, what do you expect?

Look most movies have poor acting that's a given. To me, the acting was better then I thought it would be honestly, all things considered. Everyone seemed believable in the roles they were portraying for the most part and Frankie and Reno were great. They really shined. Austin at times had trouble showing emotion, but on the flip side showed glimpses of better acting especially towards the end. His character was this tough guy who wasn't supposed to show much emotion so we didn't really get to see that on display. I'd like to see him tackle a role where he deals with big emotion. Curious to see if he can do it. You never know. He could surprise you. We will have to see though I guess.

For me what made this movie was the story. I don't even think you watched this movie to be honest. If you had you would not think the story was boring. Compared to other movies that are similar,what brings them down is the story. It is always lacking. The storyline was great and definitely not lacking. They just didn't explain things well so it left you wondering, but it was not boring.

I for one enjoyed this movie. It had rough patches obviously, but that's to be expected. If you can look past a few things, it's very enjoyable. A good renter.

I feel "The Condemned" was a better movie for Stone Cold. He was doing more of what he loved to do and that was the whole movie's selling point. With this movie, Stone Cold's acting is supposed to be less relentless, but his acting isn't what carried this movie, it was more of his prescence. While I think it's great that he's clearly trying to do more than just be straight up aggressive, it affected his acting in the movie. His tenderness just wasn't enough to take away from the small wording as he came across stiff. It made his relationship with his love interest feel like a father/daughter bond rather than a romance(plus the girl looked too young). I suppose you could say that Austin's love interest thought of him as a misunderstood warm Teddy Bear, but this should've been addressed more for an actual judgement. Another thing about this film is that most of the characters are forgettable as they have no character development and are only necessary for the plot. Their acting was as if they were pulled from the streets and on to the screen. They made the right choice of making this go straight to DVD as the acting, chemistry, and dialogue isn't strong enough for the big screen. I will say this though, Austin would've made a great 80s action star. He's got the persona for it, and some mean looking fighting.

Frankie wasn't his love interest. There was an underlying feeling between Reno and Frankie. But not between Stone Cold and Frankie. They were more like brother sister type.
