Middle-of-the-road generic underdog story
3 January 2012 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Nothing new about this recent D-to-D starring Steve Austin as Mr. Miyagi, oops, Dan Barns, a former boxer turned janitor who puts a nerdy kid under his wing and teach him the noble art as a way of learning how to handle life itself.

The good thing is that the flick has a heart, is well rounded and the characters are sympathetic enough to warrant some entertainment.

Of course we movie gobblers have seen the same story done dozens of times, but who does not love to see an underdog get the prize?

The highlight is that Steve Austin is charismatic enough and keeps it real most of the time, compensating the less than thrilling protagonist.

The dialog is cross and direct from a bad self-help book; however, is said with some dignity and Austin shows he is not only a killing machine, he has potential to not embarrass himself in more meaty roles.

A nice time waster, if you do not have anything else to do and likes to tackle this kind of movie.
