A very good action movie.
Victor M. Sanchez II
Whether you like Austin or not, this is absolutely one of the very best action films I have ever seen.
Jon A. Sonnen
I think he needs to know what it really takes to make a good movie.

I think this movie is one of the better action movies I've seen in the last year!!
STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN plays his roll well, just when you think he's dead he comes back.
At one time he worked for the US Government and while he was on a mission he got caught and was imprisoned, some wealthy TV producer Purchased him for his new reality show from a central American country that was very corrupt!!
The new reality show has 10 people in it trying to survive to be the last person standing to win their freedom.
Conrad must use his strength and his training to be the last man standing...
I rate this DVD a 5 of 5 stars!!

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.

A lethal agent from the special forces, is recruited for starring a true human slaughter transmitted by Internet, whose goal must be 40 millions of people.

Here is the drama. To watch this ferocious spectacle forcedly brings us back to the very times of the gladiators in the ancient Rome but with the same morbid vision. A moving thriller that underlined beneath the plot an issue worthy to comment. Who is really the twisted mind?

Steve Austin and Vinnie Jones are a hard to die team; besides a kinetic and witty script conform a tense movie.

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.

Way better than expected. Stone Cold Steve Austin is as much fun to watch on the big screen as he was when he was a superstar in the WWE. This movie sets a nice, high bar for action adventure. Far better than the played out and repeated crap that usually comes out of Hollywood. It is time to start taking some of these stars seriously, as they a far more entertaining than most of the rest of the Hollywood stable. I look forward to Stone Cold's next venture into film. If it is half as exciting as this, it will be a hit in my book.
