Storyline

Harry Gordini is on his way to Italy for a holiday with his family. On his way he accidentally picks up the wrong suitcase which holds in it hundreds of millions worth of new superdrug. Now the drugdealers want the drugs back and kidnap Harry's wife and son. But unfortunately Harry isn't just anyone, he's an ex-Navy SEAL and veteran of the Gulf war, code named "Wolverine". He successfully rescues his wife and kid from the drugdealers, but unfortunately their problems aren't yet over. Adolfo Jones, the head of the crime organisation, is still at large, and he's being helped by couple of dirty DEA-agents. Once again the drugdealer Jones is able to kidnap his son. So everything must come down to a final showdown between the "Wolverine" and Jones... Written by MrIQ

Lame and lifeless
29 February 2012 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

I knew next to nothing about "Wolverine" before I sat down to watch it, but it didn't take me long to guess that it had been made for television in the 1990s. The movie is shot in a flat way, with grain and dull colors throughout. While the movie took the expense to actually shoot in Italy, the way the Italian background is shot makes it often look like it was shot in California. As for the rest of the movie, there's nothing really of interest on display. The movie has practically no action for the first 50 minutes, and the little action there is in the remaining 40 or so minutes is not the least bit exciting. And while Antonio Sabato Jr. may not be as bad an actor as some other B movie stars (such as Lorenzo Lamas), he gives an absolutely passionless performance. Even if you watch the movie for free on TV, you'll feel cheated far before the end.
