On Undeadly Ground
28 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always liked Brian "Stone Cold" Bosworth, and will watch anything he appears in. Having said that, I would not care to see "Spill" (aka "Virus") a second time. Bosworth plays a national security chief who crosses paths with the usual government renegades when a truck full of illegal toxins crashes in a national park and the bad guys decide to cover up the incident, even if it means murdering a bunch of witnesses. You say you've heard this plot before? The action scenes are OK, but this one is a bare-bones thriller that appears to have been shot for video. For Bosworth fans only. For those of you too young to remember, Bosworth first appeared in an early 1990s action flick, "Stone Cold." Wrestler Steve Williams (aka Austin) later picked up the title of that movie and adopted it for his ring nickname.
