Typical "Stone Cold" move...in a good way!
29 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a Steve Austin fan: Loved "The Condemned" and "Damage", and most of his other films. I think the folks who slammed him with the negative reviews were a bit harsh and unfair. Is he "Oscar" material? No. Does he do Shakespeare type material? No. His "genre" is pulp type fiction for the masses! My only real benchmark for a good movie is this: Do I feel better after watching a movie, than I did before I watched it? In this case: yea! It was pretty good. A little campy but...overall, I gave it a 10 for meeting expectations and for the above mentioned reason as well. Actually, I give this movie a "7", to be honest: the extra "3" is to spite the negative reviewers and their vitriol!! I love the way the folks leaving the terrible reviews accuse anyone who actually *liked* the movie of being shills!! I assure you: I live in Ocean County, NJ and I don't work for Hollywood or the production company...nor do I know, personally, Steve Austin! Which of course puts me in the *other* box they accuse those of us who like the film of being in: We are retards!! LOL!! If we actually like the movie they are bashing, and we are not shills or work for the production company, then we are just stupid, or retarded! Wow! I think that that mindset, on their part, is very telling! Says a lot about them, don't you think? Anyway, Thanks Steve Austin, for making an enjoyable film (again!) and I wish you much success in the future! STONE COLD FOR PRESIDENT: 2012!!! J/K!!
