A formulaic exploitation movie that fails to live up to its potential
If you looked at the cover for WRONG SIDE OF TOWN (2010) then chances are you're familiar with the guy holding two machine guns on the cover. Wrestling star Batista (credited here as David Bautista) is a hell of an imposing character, but he's not actually the star. In fact he only appears in a handful of scenes. Fellow wrestler Rob Van Dam is actually the hero and the fact that the distributors had such a lack of faith in his pulling power does not bode well. Sadly nothing that takes place during the brief 75 minute running time (excluding credits) does anything to correct that initial assumption. Taking inspiration from the likes of COMMANDO (1985), the movie is cheap and cheerful but also poorly paced and reeking of desperation. It's plot, soundtrack and casting (porn star Stormy Daniels appears only to bare her breasts) all part of a calculated effort to appeal to undiscerning young males. There's nothing wrong with that but this lacks any invention or charm.
