Kevin Sorbo is Great!
21 March 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kevin Sorbo is Great in 'Walking Tall: The Payback'. The Well-Known Star kicks-butt & plays his part stylishly. As a film, however, this sequel has some merits.

'Walking Tall: The Payback' Synopsis: A man goes back to his hometown that is now overrun with crime and single-handedly takes justice into his own hands.

'Walking Tall: The Payback' is strictly time-pass entertainment. Its meant for a certain audience, and that section of audience, won't be disappointed. But, I must admit, I enjoyed The Rock's 'Walking Tall' much more.

Tripp Reed's Direction is ordinary. The Screenplay offers some good moments. Cinematography, Editing & Art Design, are fine.

On the whole, A Decent Flick, with a Stylish performance by Kevin Sorbo.
