4.0 out of 5 stars Austin vs. Lundgren, April 18, 2013
By 
This review is from: The Package (DVD)
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.

I was lucky to see this one at an opening screening where Austin himself appeared to do a Q&A after the movie.
