Shakedown!, 7 December 2004
Author: Movie Nuttball from U.S.A.

This film titled Shakedown is a good one! Ron Perlman stars along with Wolf Larson, Erika Eleniak, and Fred Dryer. Perlman is is great in this film. His performance as the bad guy in this film is really good and he looks very neat! I thought the training camp scenes with him were great! All of the other actors are good in this film as well. The action is really good. Fans of shoot em up films will like the action here! The earthquake scenes are also very good and I was in awe when i saw some of the scenes! One thing I noticed in the film is strange. Its when Perlman is talking to Brandon Karrer's character. I noticed that when the musical score was playing that part there was the very same piece of music that is in Hollow Man. The 10th track is titled Find Him on the Hollow Man Score CD. If you own the CD and/or are familiar with the film then you will know what I mean. Watch Shakedown and compare it! Anyway Shakedown is a good film and is very exciting. If you like Ron Perlman and the other actors I mentioned above and want to see a good disaster action film then I strongly recommend this film!
