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.Read more ›
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.
