Based on the Man of Action/Image Comics original graphic novel created by Joe Casey and Chris Burnham, written by Joe Casey, about a police officer who can't be stopped by death so he returns to the streets time and time again to fight crime.Written by
Man of Action
My quick rating - 5,5/10. Get your orgasm meter running. OK, you'll get that joke when you see the movie. This movie, as I assume the graphic novel was as well, is just plain fun. A renegade cop who can heal himself, well, sorta, is out to clean up the streets of MF'n Los Angeles. The profanity part will be filled in for you in the movie. In wiping the streets of crime, he must dispatch with the local gang of nuns running guns and get to the Fortune 500. If this sounds all cheesy and silly, it is, and on purpose. Our hero, played deadpan by Kim Coates, dispatches the bad guys within extreme prejudice. The gore tally is quite high but in a comic book way. Heads will be blown off, limbs fly and eyeballs are ripped out at a frenetic pace. They attempt to sprinkle in the morality of the story somewhat like Robocop, but you will hardly notice it. Even though Officer Downe is part of the team, he is still looked at like a monster. But the streets need a monster to get rid of the likes of Zen Master Flash and his poorly dubbed (again with the humor) clan. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and actually wish they gave it a bit more time then it had. The original ideas for the bad guys was great and could've been further elaborated on if given more time. A good Friday night viewing for sure.
