Would you like a little testosterone with your popcorn?
21 December 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Back in Business" tells of a ex-cop who teams up with his ex-partner to make a drug bust and...well, fix everything else which is wrong with his little corner of the world. A marginal action flick at best, "BinB" has very ordinary stunts and action sequences replete with all the usual machine gun wielding heavies; a sexless love relationship between the hero and delicious Dara; and lots of fun macho banter between Bosworth and his partner. If the film has anything at all going for it, it's the sort of dumb charm of square jawed and ruggedly handsome Bosworth's character who is trying to get in touch with his feminine side and control his anger with the help of his talk-radio psychotherapist while clumsily stumbling into the action spotlight and settling old scores. An okay no brainer for action junkies only.
