Product Description

Steve Austin stars as a man with no name, no memory and absolutely nothing left to lose. When he finds himself hunted by both the FBI and the Russian mob, he decides to fight back. And with every beating, bullet and betrayal, he ll remember another piece of the horror that took away his career, his family and his identity. Now the puzzle is nearly complete, and one man is about to take back his past...by ending a whole lot of futures. Erica Cerra and Adam Beach star in this explosive action-thriller about collateral damage, stone cold vengeance, and a double-crossed killing machine known only as THE STRANGER.

Amazon.com

The Stranger is a throwback to home video's 1980s VHS heyday, when athletes and martial artists like Jeff Speakman and Thomas Ian Griffith were fodder for low-budget, direct-to-video action films produced to keep the product pipeline flowing. But six-time WWF champion Steve Austin demonstrates he is anything but Expendable in this Bourne knockoff, as an amnesiac who is wanted by the FBI and the Russian mob. "What could I have done to cause all this?" he asks. Erica Cerra (Eureka) costars as a psychologist determined to help him remember the traumatic events that blocked his memory. Adam Beach (Flags of Our Fathers) also stars as an FBI agent whose motives in helping the Stranger may be suspect. Austin, who can dish it out as well as take it, rocks the action scenes, but he is also credible in the film's quieter moments, of which, thankfully, there are not too many. Leaving the door open for a sequel, this looks like the beginning of a beautiful franchise.

Customer Reviews

This was a pretty good action movie with an interesting plot.
Donkey
By the time the end of the movie came and all the pieces of the puzzle came together, I just did not care anymore... in fact, I didn't care from the start.
Micheal Hunt
Austin's performance in The Condemned was probably more compelling, and would be recommended first to the casual fan.

I am late for a night on the town so I cannot waste much ink on this movie except to say... it sure kept my attention. They destroyed more things and shot more people than a Rambo movie. Also, the story line is unique and its flashbacks slowly brought you up to speed on why things were happening. It is well worth the purchase price so Ignore the nay Sayers and at least rent it,

For those of us who thought "The Condemned" & "Damaged" were decent enough movies, you will most likely be disappointed, but not surprised to find out this movie, The Stranger, is a major flop.

To start things off, the plot is not original, its a very watered down and not too well thought out version of every other movie that evolves around a hero who can not remember who he is, but can remember all his combat and weaponry skills. Steve Austin plays that same guy from those kinda movies, an FBI agent who is through to have gone rouge, but it's really because he just has no idea who he is, while all this other boring stuff is going on inside the FBI. Sound familiar enough for you to decide to skip seeing this?

Ok, how about this then... the camera work in this movie is sickening. It's one of those nauseating 'hand held' feel movies where the camera keeps shaking around... whatever idiot came up with that has got to wish he had amnesia so he can't recall ever having to see such poor image quality presented for a movie. And lets not forget the development... what is with these movie makers insisting on drowning out color and making everything look stale? It looked horrible years ago in Superman Returns, what makes them think it would look any better now?

The editing is also pretty poor. Between the overly long intro/title sequence, and the annoying music chosen to be played over it, it makes it unforgivable later in the film when scenes keep switching back and forth between the main characters memories as he slowly remembers things... which was done very poorly. By the time the end of the movie came and all the pieces of the puzzle came together, I just did not care anymore... in fact, I didn't care from the start. The pace of the whole movie is very slow.

If you read the DVD jacket or product description, it says that Austin is an amnesiac who'se being hunted by both the FBI and the Russian Mafia. Sounds like fun, no? Well, if you are a Steve Austin fan, then you'll probably enjoy this film. If you're not an Austin fan, you'll probably find it a somewhat forgettable (pun intended) action flick. One of the more interesting parts is the DVD jacket-perhaps playing to the new 3-D craze, the cardboard cover has an interesting 3-D effect to it. But that's as high-tech as this film goes. Right at the very start of the film, when Austin (looking like a real street person, with beard & long hair) is being chased by cops shooting automatic rifles at him, for an impossibly long chase sequence and never once hitting him, you realize that credibility is not going to be the film's strong suit. Not only must they be the world's worst shots (chimpanzees firing automatics would have hit him in this sequence) but the premise for why they would be shooting to kill doesn't really exist either. The film seems to be striving for more than just action-film cred...there's a fair amount of dialog here, and it seems like Austin is trying to establish acting ability, not just muscle memory. Unfortunately the script, the directing, and the cinematography, all are working against him. As mentioned before, some of the action sequences are filmed in really low-budget, low-quality fashion like from a first-try home movie stuck up on YouTube. Also much of the "plot" involves showing the same flashbacks from Austin's confused memory, over and over and over again--once, twice, three, four, five, you lose track how many times you see the same images. Each time a little more detail-but it's like torturing the audience in its cumulative effect.Read more ›

Steve Austin plays a guy who has forgotten who he is, but he proves to be no Bourne. The fight scenes are short and not at all creative or cool. It is explained in the special features they were rushed for time and had to basically choreagraph the fight scenes on the spot. Trust me, it showed. When you rent or buy a movie with Steve Austin, you want to see fighting and butt kicking.

Parts of the movie went to what appeared to be a home video look. Very low budget on this one. Austin gets shot at for long stretches of the movie and unrealistically never gets hit until he eventually gets grazed a little. He seemed a little stiff and unnatural during his movements throughout the movie. Firing a machine gun or tossing a grenade didn't look second nature for him. He looked rehearsed and nervous.

Austin would be good in a horror movie where he is in a group in peril and has to be the hero. That would be his perfect role. These loner, bad guy-type roles aren't working for him. He doesn't have the Dolph Lundgren or Van Dam charisma to engage an audience...at least not in this movie. He does have charisma, wrestling fans who have seen him know this for a fact. He just needs cool lines and memorable action scenes.

His toughest guys he fought in the movie was an elderly fisherman and an overweight mexican police officer. Where was the tough antagonist who we thought might stomp Austin in a fight, but we wanted to see him fight and get the big battle at the end...none of that here. No cool bad guys, no cool fights, no cool lines. In the end, it was not a fun experience.

Austin fans can skip this one and action fans should definitely keep walking. There is not much to see here.
