Forced sloppy product deserves a barbaric vengeance
17 December 2013 | by (adelaide, australia) – See all my reviews

I must be honest here. Forced Vengeance is one of the most idiotic and amateurish pieces of crap I've seen, back in the day where Chuckie sported a moustache and had red hair. He plays an orphaned brother, extracting revenge on the people responsible for killing his foster brother and Dad, who were running this great casino business, but these evil developers had put the squeeze on em'. While small Daddy, defied the baddies after rejecting their proposal, he and son (who was for it) paid the ultimate price. Some people are just plain stubborn. I guess it's a matter of principal. If you want loads of action, you'll get it here. If you want logic, go somewhere else. Of course, as always, Chuck's close friend, a ex vet buddy is killed. When his beautiful girlfriend is raped and killed, now the real vengeance begins, that Chuckies sends forth, and we love it. The film has a very amateurish and slapdash script, as if the dialogue came as the movie went along, some moments of it, become unintentionally funny. Main reason- absurd dialogue. Here's a stupid line for ya, as I feel I must tell you. This is just after father Pascal, has told baddie, Ramondi to go jump. This is Ramondi's reactive dialogue. "I know, but expand or die, that's (something else... "). Oh, and the acting, don't even get me started on the acting. This is like Chuck isn't even acting. This is like a just do it as you go, not even half baked flick. I did love Chucks's line where he put a homosexual mate of one the baddies into some heating contraption. "Sleep tight, sweet cheeks. You could of been a toasted marshmellow." It's great, seeing Chuckie, galavanting all over San Francisco, on the kill, readily disposing of scum, with a non repentence, much like a robot, and that's what he is. He hardly shows any range of emotions, if any, and this could well be one of the worst performances of his life, in one of the worst films he's ever done. Truly, FV, is one the most amateurish, unprofessional flicks, I've ever seen, all the way, which is a shame, given the beautiful surrounds this flick is shot. It's sloppy wrapped up ending, is just another laugh of unbelief. True to life words, have Chuckie saying to that gay badman. "Bravest man I knew was a homosexual"
