One Tough Bastard indeed...
20 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brian Bosworth stars as a military man who looks to avenge the murder of his family at the hands of some random thugs in a convenience store hold up, however along the way there is something about super-powered guns and a street kid who teams up with the Boz to take down Bruce Payne and M.C Hammer. It's no secret that Brian Bosworth was a bust in the NFL (Not the biggest one, let us never speak of Ryan Leaf again.) however as an action star he has far more acting ability than guys like Olivier Gruner and Jeff Speakman. (His two main competitors in the B.movie market) After starring in the insanely silly (yet extremely fun) Stone Cold, One Man's Justice was his second movie and it's an adequate revenge-action film if not quite as fun as his debut. After this though the Boz's career went through a downward spiral with a series of worse and worse movies (peaking at Virus, in terms of badness) until finally making his comeback in the XFL (Where all the NFL rejects go) and finally having a high profile role in the Dean Cain mediocrity Phase IV. As Bosworth goes, he has some charisma but mainly it's Bruce Payne's typically hammy performance (Complete with nose-ring) and M.C Hammer's hysterical Nino Brown impression which makes this so enjoyable. Sadly M.C Hammer's theory that you can't touch him is proved wrong in this movie.

* *1/2 out of 4-(Pretty good)
