Cheap action flick
15 March 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A short and simple slice of action hokum starring wrestler-turned-actor Roddy Piper (THEY LIVE). MARKED MAN is an entirely predictable slice of B-movie nonsense in which Piper is sent to prison through no fault of his own, only to uncover a sinister conspiracy which leads to his escape. From that point on, he finds himself a marked man, pursued by both the authorities and a murderous gang.

This cheap Canadian production doesn't have much to offer even the seasoned veteran of action fare. Piper gives a standard (read: wooden) performance with little of the natural charisma he displayed in THEY LIVE (which I assume must be his finest hour). The supporting cast are undistinguished, aside from a welcome role for former star Miles O'Keeffe (ATOR, THE FIGHTING EAGLE) as the chief villain.

The fight scenes occur with a relentless inevitability, but none of them are particularly exciting, although to be fair it's hard to go wrong with a fast-paced storyline like this film has, so it's not too difficult a watch...just not a very satisfying one either.
