What a bore fest... Honestly i expect this kind of movie from Steven Seagal in recent years, but so far MJW had done very good movies with small budgets. Movies like Blood and Bone, Undisputed 2, Never Back Down 2 and 3, even lower budget like Falcon Rising or Skin Trade had some very good fights. He even shine in Arrow despite having a small role...
But then this... Wow. OK how to start? This is low budget, like VERY low budget. From the music which look like its coming straight from a 1985 movie to the cheap CGI blood effects and gun fights. There is not much money for explosions, car chases or even decent action scenes. I could overlook all of this if the story was solid with decent hand to hand combat. After all, Michael Jai White is the lead...
But nop... the few fighting scenes there are, and when i say few i mean barely none, are badly filmed and disappointing. Michael is still a top notch on screen fighter, it should be easy to film him but the director clearly lacks talent. The story is extremely simple, cliché, with not much to offer either. All of this make for a dull and boring movie.
What about Steve Austin? He is on the cover... Well you could pretty much remove his role from the movie and it wouldn't change anything at all. I feel he owned a service to somebody and therefore agreed to have his name put on this for a short screen time and nothing major to do. Probably to gather to the wrestling fans or something.
This is not the first time Michael and Steve shoot a movie together, they did in Tactical Force and honestly, that movie was a low budget action flick with nothing original or exceptional to offer, but man was it 5 times more entertaining than this movie...
Chain of Commands really is one of the most disappointing movies i saw in recent years, considering the on screen beast that can be Michael Jai White. Such a shame.
