The Hammer is one of his very few villainous roles.
I picked up this film because I am a huge Fred "The Hammer" Williamson fan. I was shocked to see him play the villain in this surprisingly entertaining film. Fred Williamson never plays a villain - I think it's written into his contract. How Brady MacKenzie got Fred William to play the villain beats me?! Brady MacKenzie (the director) never made a film before this, or after - what gives? He handles the action scenes very well - he's no John Woo, but hey - he's got Michael Bay beat! And Fred's good as the antagonist, hard-ass and funny as always. This also marks my first Don "The Dragon" Wilson film; who's no Jackie Chan, but he's got Van Damn beat! I will admit I am a fan of Andrew "Dice" Clay, not as a comedian but as an actor. The Dice runs around for most of the action scenes blazing two guns - ala Chow Yun-Fat. The Killer the Diceman isn't, but I'll take Whatever It Takes over any Lethal Weapon film any day of the week. Whatever It Takes hits the mark, keeping in mind this is a straight-to-video release.
