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.

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.

Stone Cold stars in this action movie about an amnesiac being hunted by the FBI and the Russian mob. Although he does not have memories of who he is, he realizes that he is very skilled at fighting and decides to fight back. As his memories slowly return, he must survive against enemies on both sides of the law. He remembers how his family got killed and then the fight REALLY begins! Erica Cerra(Eureka) and Adam Beach(Flags of Our Fathers) co-star in this movie about a trained combat machine named only The Stranger. Rated R for violence and language. Enjoy!

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 ›

The Stranger (2010) features Steve Austin as a man who has forgotten his past, being chased by the FBI because they believe he has knowledge about a mole in the agency. His true identity and what he has done, remains mostly a mystery until the end. However by then you may be worn out by the long drawn out style of storytelling that features too many repetitive flashbacks of the same scenes. When the pieces are finally revealed, the payoff just doesn't live up to the big build up, and hardly seems worth the wait.

The stranger, apparently named Tom Tomashevsky (Austin), was an FBI agent on assignment infiltrating a Russian mob. Something traumatic happened, and now he continuously forgets who he is. Having escaped from FBI custody, he is reportedly in the vicinity of Coos Bay, Oregon. Grace Bishop (Erica Cerra) a professor at Washington State University, who was involved in questioning Tom, has such great interest in his case that she goes and tries to find him. FBI agent Mason Reese (Adam Beach) leads the team searching for Tom, and hoping that he will regain his memory and lead him to the FBI mole, he helps Tom and Grace evade capture. Tom remains unstable, and it's not long before he takes off with Grace trying to escape, but the FBI soon takes them into custody again.

While not totally uninteresting, the story is told in a way that makes it difficult to appreciate. The aim may have been to preserve the mystery until the end, but the overuse of flashbacks really disrupts the flow of the movie. We never really get to know much about Tom, and it's kind of hard to feel much sympathy for someone who is mostly dead emotionally. Austin is not a polished actor, but he has screen presence, and he delivers his lines competently.
