It gets two stars instead of one for a couple of good action sequences (I especially liked the death by bulldozer) and the presence of Treat Williams, who's much too good for this sort of thing. Overall, though, I wouldn't bother unless it's the only thing on cable- there's much more entertaining action fare out there.
There was certainly a reason this was a direct-to-video. While Williams acting is good. What he was given up work with wasn't. The writing was predictable and downright lame. As the #1 reviewer already noted, the special effects, including the stunts, well, they were also downright lame.
So why continue to watch? As the redhead said, "Loneliness makes you do things you don't wanna do sometimes."

I like this series of movies. The graphics are a little on the raunchy side. Definitely not a kids movie.Published 22 months ago by mrichart
