User Reviews

 
You should make sure he's dead.

I'm a big Danny Trejo fan, and he seemed to really have a meaty role in this film. Otherwise, I would have dismissed it as another ex-wrestler grabbing a paycheck for kicking butt. Of course, Serinda Swan also made the time spent watching it worthwhile.

I typically like a good revenge flick, but this one was missing something. It was like, "They killed my wife, and now I am going to do something about it." There wasn't any real passion in Austin's character. Trejo chewed the scenery every time he appeared. This was his best role, but Austin just didn't have the stones - he was cold.

Austin needs to find some John Cena passion.
