I got the DVD from the library so there was no great investment on my part and really expected to stop it after 20 minutes. But it surprised me. Robert Mammone, as the tycoon sponsoring this internet viewing only battle royal to the death, has solid acting chops along with the always interesting to watch Rick Hoffman. Of the group of combatants, Manu Bennet and Dasi Ruz show real chemistry and Vinnie Jones is always believable as a murderous bastard.

Okay, the premise is simple as any action movie tends to be whether it's escaping aliens ("Predator," "Alien") or stopping the thing that will end the world ("The Rock," "Armagedon"). A rich, pompous, self absorbed tycoon buys convicted criminals from jails around the world, brings them to a small island and offers them freedom if they're the last one alive after 30 hours while he broadcasts on the internet for $49.95. To their ankle is strapped an explosive device that will trigger if they try to remove it.

What makes a story interesting is it's execution from casting, directing, cinematography, dialogue, etc. Every romance story is the same boy meets, girl, boy loses girl, boy and girl reunite in the end. Director Scott Wiper knows he's not making a Merchant Ivory film and so focuses on the compelling fight sequences, the question of who will be left, and how they are eliminated.

Now, I've read critiques about Austin's acting and I don't think these viewers get it. As the director states in the commentary, Austin, like other action heroes before him, has the confidence to do nothing. His range is limited and it plays to his advantage. Looking back on the Schwarzenegger Stallone era, does anybody remember them acting other than cool under fire? Clint Eastwood made a career out of squinting and teeth gritting.

Format: DVD
If you think you've seen The Condemned before you wouldn't be entirely mistaken. It borrows elements from several films including Escape from New York, Running Man, and No Escape. Despite that, this is actually a pretty good action flick and really took me by surprise. Wrestler Stone Cold Steve Austin is Jack Conrad, one of ten condemned prisoners who gets a chance at freedom. A wealthy producer named Breckel has brought Conrad and the other nine prisoners to an island near New Guinea where they will battle to the death with the lone survivor winning his, or her, freedom. Breckel will broadcast the event over the internet and his team has set up hundreds of cameras all around the island to capture the brutal action. Each "contestant" has been fitted with an explosive ankle bracelet to keep them in control.

Among the other prisoners is former SAS operative McStarley played by Vinnie Jones. Jones has virtually made a career out of playing similar tough guy roles including Juggernaut in X-Men 3. He plays McStarley to the villainous hilt. McStarley has formed an alliance with Japanese martial artist Saiga, and together they hunt down the rest of the prisoners. Yet another prisoner is played by former WWE wrestler and Strongman competitor, 6' 11" Nathan Jones. It isn't all just a beat-em-up however. A back-story on Conrad shows that he is more than just an average prisoner. He disappeared from his home in Texas a year earlier without a word to his girlfriend. Now his entire hometown is watching the action unfold over the Internet along with millions of other viewers.

Now, Steve Austin isn't a guy with a lot of acting range. But then again, guys like that (Chuck Norris, Steven Segal) have done quite well for themselves in action hero roles.

The Condemned is one of those movies that you know right off the bat is made for one specific type of audience. If you like reading Jane Austin novels and sunsets and walks along the beach and romantic movies then this movie may not be for you. This is all out balls to the wall action movie that does not apologize for what it is. Premise is a reality series producer is putting together the ultimate survivor series on the internet. He picks ten people from the worst prisons around the world and buys them from death row and attaches a bomb to their ankles. The Bomb will go off in 24 hours the catch is simple only one can win. It's a fight to the death the prize is you get your life your freedom and a big bankroll. Trapped amongst the sadistic killers is Jack Conrad (Steve Austin) a former Navy S.E.A.L. who was recruited to do black ops types of jobs his last one went bad and he was caught in El Salvador awaiting death. All Conrad wants to do is get out of this alive and go home to his girl. But Conrad is decent man with Honor and a code of principles that will not let him take part in this sadistic game so he tries his best to survive and get help. Steve Austin does a good job in his first film As lead actor and he's gone on to make better films since his role in the EXPENDABLES is much better and you can see Austin has grown as a actor, This movie is worth checking out if you are a fan of this type of action flick. Better then Van Damme's hard target and Rutger Hauer's The game, This movie does deliver good entertainment.
