Did You Know?

John Brickner is told, "bottom line," while making a compromise about winning the $150,000 title. Steve Austin used that as his own catchphrase on "WWE: Raw is WAR" (1993).See more »
Factual errors: After John saves his bosses life with CPR, the paramedic tells John that his big hands cracked 7 ribs. Without an X-ray of the bosses chest the paramedic would have no way of knowing if any of his ribs are cracked.See more »

A subdued Austin, 24 September 2012
Author: ctomvelu1 from United States

"Damage" is a remake of a Charles Bronson flick, "Hard Times," which in turn was remade some years later with J.C. Van Damme. Steve Austin plays an ex-con who gets involved in the murky and illegal world of bare knuckle fighting. A hokey subplot has our hero trying to raise enough money to obtain a new heart for the daughter of a late acquaintance. Walter Goggins plays Austin's sleazy but likable manager and the very pretty Laura Van DerVoot is Goggins' partner. Several veteran actors were cast as well, including Donnelly Rhodes, to support Austin, who in fact isn't all that bad as the soft-spoken, hard-hitting tough guy. Casting several veterans in a film like this is nothing new; it has been used with folks like Chuck Norris, Ah-nuld and Steven Segal, none of whom started out as actors. The fights are clumsily staged, which in a strange way befits an ex-pro wrestler. "Damage" doesn't begin to touch the Bronson version, but it is watchable, especially for Goggins, who reminds me of a young Tom Cruise.
