(Dolph Lundgren, Steve Austin, Darren Shahlavi, Jerry Trimble, et al / Blu ray+DVD / R / 2013 / Anchor Bay Entertainment)
Overview: Steve Austin and Dolph Lundgren star in the bone-crunching action flick that delivers the goods: Austin is combat veteran Tommy Wick, a nightclub bouncer and stone-cold enforcer for a Seattle mob boss. Lundgren is `The German,' an international crime lord and hardcore killing machine. But when Wick is asked to courier a mysterious package to The German, he'll suddenly find himself hunted by relentless teams of hit men, mercenaries, assassins and sadists.
Blu ray+DVD Verdict: I love both these actors, especially (only) for these kind of chessy action movies, of course. They both always go full on for their respective hard man, nut job, bullet-deflecting warrior roles and this one is no exception, trust me.
When Wick (Austin), a local businessman's enforcer is asked to deliver a small package to 'The German' (Lundgren), he and his partner question the long road trip for something they could easily mail. But, given orders they follow them.
And so unfolds a raging battle for one side to obtain the item and kill Wick thereafter, and The German wanting the item and wanting Wick alive. And yes, there is another mobster-type trying to do the former with his hapless crew! Anyway, the car ride out to The German brings us a massive out-of-nowhere death scene that deserves to be played several times! Wow, that truly was not expected - as it another during the movie, but I won't give the timing of that one away!
And so, in conclusion, the acting is perfect for this type of B-movie, the script cheesy, but okay too, but these heavily choreographed missed-punches-landing fight scenes have to get tighter, for my money! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
