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.

I have got to say that the movies "Stone Cold" Steve Austin are all action packed and top notch action films. This movie in particular is awesome,the plot is this..a film/internet production company is making a fortune out of this little "game" they have rigged. The company takes 10 hardened criminals and put them on an island with 24 hours to pretty much kill each other,and the 1 con that remains gets their freedom. The show is broadcast online & tons of people are subscribing to watch,so the creators stand to make a fortune off of this game show. I enjoy the fact that the movie is fast-paced and there is non-stop action and brutal fight sequences. The head role is played by Steve Austin and the internet company decides to paint him black,making accusations that he was a KKK member who wiped out a family(which is all bs) just to get higher ratings. Each of the 10 "contestants" is rigged with a C4 explosive charge that will detonate if tampered with or the person decides to pull it to eliminate the enemy. There is a big feud between Austin & Vinnie Jones that escalates til' the end and is an all out brawl. Vinnie decides to take the creators of the game hostage,kill the workers and take all the money. Austin's ex-wife is watching this all unfold on the internet & i will not give away the ending but Austin prevails and regains his freedom. If you are a fan of hardcore action movies or a fan of Stone Cold then you will enjoy this movie,it is nonstop action from start to finish. I hope this was helpful. Enjoy.

I am a fan of of action and I love movies where people fight to the death. There were too many commercials in the beginning but great movie overall.

Looking for lots of action and a good story? This may be right up your alley if you aren't squeamish. A group of death row prisoners from around the world are put on an island and told the one that survives goes free. To add to the incentive to fight they are rigged with high explosive ankle bracelets. I had forgotten about seeing this one in 2007 and just re-rented it and was not disappointed re-watching it. A very good Steve Austin movie produced by WWE.

Recommendations: The Hunger Games,No Escape,Surviving the Game (1994), and Escape from New York

Stone Cold Steve Austin stars in this action movie where he plays the role of Jack Conrad, a prisoner in a crooked jail who is bought like a slave by a crooked TV producer to participate, against his will, in an illegal and deadly game show taking place on a remote island where nine prisoners are forced to fight to the death while being televised/streamed live online. Action galore! This movie is rated R for violence and language. Enjoy!
