Steve Austin plays Tommy Wick, an ex-combat veteran, who's a nightclub bouncer & enforcer for Seattle mob boss Big Doug (Eric Keenleside) who's stuck in this type of life with his wife Darla (Kirstien Kerr) because of the limited employment & financial stability with his military background. Big Doug gives Tommy & his partner Julio (Mike Dopud) an assignment to deliver a package to a man who he's had a past with called "The German" (Dolph Lundgren), a violent crime lord himself, with the payoff being that Tommy clear the debt owed to Doug by his jailed brother Eddie (Lochlyn Munro) but runs into problems along with way with a group of mercenaries, lead by Devon (Darren Shahlavi) along with Monique (Monique Ganderton) & Ralph (Peter Bryant), come after him after being hired by Anthony (Michael Daingerfield) to get the package while also sending his men after his rival crime boss "The German."

This was probably the most unique movie story wise that Austin has done to date as despite the fact that both men were linked together throughout the whole movie, it was telling two individual stories of Wick & "The German" dealing with the hits put out on each guy by the same boss as they didn't cross paths with each other throughout most of the movie. The action was what you expect as you had some fist fighting but mostly based on gun play while Austin did his usual "dry humor" with one liners from time to time that did make you laugh.

In the end, this was one of Austin's better movies so I recommend for fans of him or Lundgren at this stage in his career.

The Package is a strong entry in the pantheon of Stone Cold films, which already includes several classics. I can safely say to those of you who follow the code of the Stone Cold that the Package is vying with the Condemned, Damage and Expendables for the position of best Stone Cold performance.

On the surface, the Package is a quick and dirty exercise aimed at jumping on the already overpopulated B-movie action cash-in band wagon. However, in a refreshing change, the Package is the same film at its core. This is a film where what you see is what you get. No moralising. No running out of budget. No excuses. Just Stone Cold carnage and a respectable body count.

The plot is very simple: Stone Cold is a debt collector. Stone Cold fights people. Stone Cold is sent to deliver a package. Stone Cold gets tangled up with some really bad people. People get killed, some of them by Stone Cold. As you probably read on the package, Dolph is in this film too. Dolph has a plot that runs largely parallel to Stone Cold's: Dolph gets antagonised by some guys. Dolph kills the antagonists. Dolph talks a bunch of stuff about the importance of good nutrition to a few corpses.

Both Stone Cold and Dolph are in fine form, dispensing wrath and punishment to all comers. Stone Cold breaks some guys nose with a bowling ball in the first five minutes, which was awesome. I've always liked bowling.

What I really liked about this film is that innocent people didn't get a pass like in most namby-pamby Hollywood action. If you were an innocent bystander in this film, chances are you got shot in the face. Hell yeah, give the producers of this film $50 million and let's see what they can really do!

So why a four star review - the reveal towards the end of the film is pretty lame and almost derails the whole thing. However, this is a minor setback in what is an otherwise fairly awesome action flick.

Austin is easily one of the next/current action stars. Any fan of 80's style action movies where the bad guys die a overly violent death and the good guys win and will get the girl in a very bloody and predictable fashion will love this movie. The fact that an 80's action icon is in it makes it all the better. In summary; if you are a male born after 75 and before 85 and like violent movies such as Rocky, Rambo, Terminator, etc. this is a great movie. If you thought Titanic was an epic drama and the best movie ever released you are probably still correct but this movie will be somewhere between a bad bottle of wine and good tofu.

One should never go into a movie starring Steve Austin (aka Stone Cold Steve Austin) expecting Shakespeare. If you do you'll be disappointed. If instead you're looking for some high intensity action where fisticuffs and martial arts reign supreme you'll be appeased. This isn't to say Austin is a terrible actor but dialogue is not his claim to fame.

THE PACKAGE has Austin portraying a collector/bouncer for a big time criminal making good money while keeping the bad guy off his brother who's in prison. It seems his brother stole money from this same guy who makes Austin a deal: deliver a personal package and the debt is cleared. It seems easy enough so Austin takes on the job.

But as we movie fans know nothing is ever quite as easy as it looks. While driving through the backwoods of Washington state, Austin and his partner are ambushed and his partner killed. These are mercenaries hired by Tony, another bad guy, trying to intercept the package. Gunplay and hand to hand combat follow with Austin barely escaping and leaving behind to dead henchmen, one of whom was engaged to another evil operative. And yes, she holds a grudge.

Tony is trying to find not just the package but its intended recipient, The German (Dolph Lundgren). While waiting for the delivery of the package The German is taking on Tony's men trying to find out who is behind this hijack. From the scenes involving his handling of the men sent to kill him it's easily deciphered that The German is not a very nice guy, a bit more of a sociopath than anything else.

Between time on the road and fighting bad guys you know that Austin will eventually get the package to The German. But just what is in the package that makes it so valuable?
