Looks craptastic, a mix of that JCVD flick about the exact same thing and Manhunt. Still, Vinnie Jones will hopefully get to slam a few car doors against the skulls of other people, so it can't be all bad.

The huge motivator for me to pass is a (ex?) WWE guy in there.
Don't think any of the trailers had him doing a Stone Cold Stunner on anyone.

PizD - you know they'll sneak it in somewhere.

I actually like movies with ex-WWF'ers. Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Dwayne Rockenheimer or whatever the fuck his name is...it's all good.

Some direct-to-video feature, far's I recall. Can't recall the name, think of it as "Generic JCVD Film # 12"

I am PUMPED for this movie! The only way it could be more awesome is if they replaced Stone Cold with ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER and he can do more of the same shit like in the Running Man.

For those who are not familiar with the Running Man, it is the film where Arnold uses his infamous (on the soundboards at least) "But I hope you leave enough room for my fist because I'm gonna RAM IT INTO YOUR STOMACH AND BREAK YOUR GODDAMN SPINE!"

Oh man, this is super awesome!

Also Neildo already mentioned the movie they apparently 'ripped off' from, the Japanese flick Battle Royale.

Ack! you're talking about Hard Target? That movie was BADAZZ! Directed by none other than the most badass of badass movie directors John 'badass' Woo! WTF?!

Also has Lance Henriksen in it, who is also a badass.

Take Battle Royal. Replace everything remotely edgy with generic bad guys. Oh shit, lunch is here. We'll finish this later.

Uhh... I don't feel like doing this anymore. Add some explosions and we're done.

Why doesn't someone just make a movie out of Most Dangerous Game?

The book was badass enough in itself!

This was better when it was Running Man.

Sadly everyone else already beat me to that harsh, biting reality.

Hey, Killian! Here is Sub-Zero! Now, PLAIN ZERO!
Where's Buzzsaw? He had to split.
Sorry, I don't do requests.

Classic!

But I'm still going to watch this movie in the theaters. WOO!

I can't wait to see the Condemned. It's a glimpse of the world of my future presidency.

Kickboxer HAS to be in there, if only for the "You bleed like Maylee. Maylee goood fock!" line.

DAYoung
28th April 07, 06:06 PM
1. Bloodsport.
2. Universal Soldier.
3. Kickboxer, Cyborg and Lionheart make up one film's worth.

Neildo
28th April 07, 08:45 PM
My dad gave me Universal Soldier 2 and 3 which are both on one double sided dvd.

it's still a waste of a dvd.

First one had it's moments i guess.

Not true. Just yesterday I saw Terminator on Spike.

It's just that action movies these days have absolutely no substance and suck major ass.

Worth spending mony on or not?

exactly. i hate the WWE. fuck vince mcmahon, i'm stealing from that motherfucker. is this on torrent yet?

edit: teehee, i should be converting this overnight and i'll watch it on my psp tomorrow.

Question!
29th April 07, 10:01 PM
I just want to watch it for Vinnie Jones and its gratuitious violence.

Also, I'm watching Commando on TV right now, it's awesome!

So i've watched most of it. I like it.

well choreographed action, some cheezy drama, one-liners that aren't groan-inducing. all-in-all, a decent action flick.

i know i made the parallel to battle royale, but i haven't actually watched that yet. just some cuts from youtube. i have a copy but something's wrong with it, or i need some mystery codec. either way, i don't think it's much like it. BR has it's own dynamic.

other people have said it's like the running man. it's not. it's not even like the steven king short story of the same name.

it's nothing original, but still cool.


also: Stone cold = BMF. he whups some ass in this flick, and no stunner. i don't think that would work on the deadly street, only in the ring.

edit: I just noticed this is Steve Austins first feature film, despite being in the wrestling thing since the early 90's. he's off to a good start.

Neildo

For some contrast, i just watched 'The Marine' and that's a fat load of motherfucking bullshit. the acting is cheesy, the writing is awful, the soundtrack is totally lame, and even the action, while well choreographed (it's a WWE movie, FFS) is just bad. THe movie has no point whatsoever. Good use of explosions though.

The Condemned is way better.
