Kevin Sorbo stars as Nick Prescott in this action-packed sequel to the hit film, Walking Tall, as the son of a small town sheriff who returns home to discover the place in which he grew up is now overrun with crime, drugs and violence. A group of ruthless criminals is purchasing real estate using strong-arm tactics. With the cooperation of corrupt local county policemen, they have been pilfering gas from local gas stations, leaving a trail of destruction behind. When Nick's father, in an effort to stop the criminals, is ruthlessly killed, Nick enlists the help of an FBI agent in an effort to seek out justice and revenge.
Not a sequel, per se, to the 2004 feature Walking Tall with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (which in itself was only loosely based on the real-life story of Southern lawman Buford Pusser), this by-the-books actioner stars Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys) as another taciturn tough guy who faces down small-town corruption with determination and a very big stick. Sorbo plays a former elite soldier who returns to his small Texas hometown to discover that his sheriff father has been murdered by a cadre of nefarious types (led by tattooed heel A.J. Buckley), and with the help of a comely FBI agent (Yvette Nipar), he takes up his father's badge and takes on the bad guy with a particularly large piece of hickory as his main weapon. Sorbo is a likely action star, though he lacks the charm of The Rock (or the downhome grit of Joe Don Baker and Bo Svenson, who played Pusser in the '70s feature and its sequels), and the story is doggedly formulaic in its march to a showdown conclusion. The action, however, is plentiful, and should provide a passing distraction for viewers seeking some testosterone-heavy thrills. -- Paul Gaita

The ability to change the types of roles one plays and the image one has are 2 hallmarks of a great actor. Kevin Sorbo has changed his looks from the Hercules days with a shorter hair cut and a leaner physique.
Now, he can look for roles that will challenge him to show pain and emotional vulnerabilities. Otherwise, he may end up making movies that all seem similar.
This version of Walking Tall is original because it doesn't attempt to copy The Rock's version of Walking Tall.
I give Kevin Sorbo's acting combined with the overall new version of the Walking Tall series a 5 star rating-
Kevin Sorbo is great in any role he plays and this one was no exception. He played the role of Nick Prescott so well. I really loved his character.
AJ Buckely was great bad guy, so much so that I wanted to hit him. He showed a little bit of compassion but not much in one part of the movie.
Jennifer Sipes role was only small but a role that you wont' forget in a hurry, she portrayed Krystal really well and the emotion she showed without having to even say a word.
Have watched this movie many times already and will watch it many times more.
Bring on the next movie.
