Goofs

That is not the Twin Towers in that scene, it's the new tower in the left with a apt building on the right in the foreground, the direction of the shot from Bklyn gives the illusion the building being next to each other. See more »

Good movie, watch it.
10 July 2013 | by blizz007See all my reviews

Not what i expected, in a good way. This is not just a "run and gun" movie. I find this movie to be comparable to "Falling Down" from 1993, or Law "Abiding Citizen" 2009. Only a bit better! I would give both those movies 7, i give this 8.

The reason for this is the build up, or rather the hard hitting decline. It is not only hard hitting, but it is highly relevant and indeed, highly believable. The acting is good, Erin Karpluk does an excellent role, and really gave me a "puch in the heart". Eric Roberts does the slick lawyer very well indeed. Dominic Purcell does a good job, but i have a bit of an issue there. There is a bit to much "stoneface" going on. If this is due to the actor or the director is probably a discussion for the learned of such things. But he carries the movie well.

Im looking at Uwe Bolls movie list and i have seen six or seven of his over 30 movies, so i am no expert. If you look the Bloodrayne series it is quit entertaining, but they don't mean anything, if you catch my drift. I find Assault on Wallstreet to be quite a different animal. Yes there is shooting, executions and blood. But this time the "scenery" is different, it is relevant.

Assault on wallstreet surprised me and therefor i might be overly entusiastic by giving an 8, but i do recommend this movie. Yes you might "have seen it before".. Well let me tell you, i have seen Superman, Spiderman, Avenge me this and Avenge me that so many times that the my eyeballs starts to bleed by just accidentally seeing the commercials for the bloody things.. OK, the new Spiderman was better than the last one, but thats besides the point! (cough cough)

I say give it a go :)

Appreciate a yes or no for helpfullness, so i know if there is a reason for me to writing these comments.
