This is actually the first time ever that a movie has tempted me to write a review of my own. Scratch that. It practically forced me to. After a hard day's work, all I wanted was a good old action flick. A movie that'd not overwhelm that overworked brain of mine. Well, I certainly got what I came for, but to a degree I hadn't been prepared for. This movie basically consists of three things: 1. Close-up shots of certain objects or persons accompanied by a cheap sound-effect. (A rattlesnake, for example) 2. Shootouts and fights by and with a superhero-like nut-job against even worse nut-jobs. 3. The worst dialogue I ever heard in a movie. Ever.
Example? Here you go: About 5-10 minutes into the movie, our superhero-nut-job approaches three other nut-jobs sitting beside their trailer in the Mexican desert. They are harassing a dog. He shouts from afar: "Hey! Leave that dog alone!" In response, one of them shouts: "Un Gringo! Hijo de puta!" (Son of a..) Now, in a close-up shot that is brilliantly accompanied by some cliché western-jingle, we see our 3 nut-jobs grabbing a bat, tire-iron or whatever else seems to be lying around. Then our superhero-nut-job hits everyone of them a few times until they stop moving.
All you have to do now to imagine how the rest of the movie goes is to exchange the three nut-jobs for other nut-jobs, the trailer for a ramshackle Mexican town and the bats for guns. That's it. There's nothing else there.
All in all one of the worst movies I have ever seen and a huge waste of time. Plus 1 star for the hot chick though.
