PM greatness
12 May 2010 | by (United States Minor Outlying Islands) – See all my reviews

"The Underground" is another guilty pleasure from PM Entertainment. The plot: Fahey plays Brian Donnegan, a clichéd cop character who has to stop the killings of rap stars. He gets in too deep after his partner is killed. Now he stop the murders any way possible. He's doin' it freestyle...

Because this is PM flick, you can expect good stunts. The pyrotechnics are cool and the car chase at the end is a blast. Jeff Fahey puts in an emotionless performance, but it works. The plot is silly and the dialogue worse, but that's part of the B-movie fun. If you like this one, I also recommend "Hologram Man". In the end: If you like Jeff Fahey (and who doesn't...) or PM movies (and who doesn't...), check this one out.
