User Reviews

Only Dolph's mother could love this
20 February 2020 | by garrymclarkeSee all my reviews

We watched this not expecting cinematography brilliance, but simple non-cerebral entertainment. But it was so bad. It looked as if Dolph either has severe body damage and constant pain, restricting his movement, or he just didn't give a damn about a modicum of realism. When sneaking up on the bad guys he makes no effort to achieve stealth; he just walks around! He doesn't hide but still doesn't get hit by lots of automated weapons fire then offloads a couple of pistol rounds and the bad guys fall around dying. There is no blood when bad guys are stabbed and bodies dragged away. It is just as if no one cared about any pretense of realism. We laughed most of the way through this movie. But, hey, I guess that counts as some form of entertainment.
