This is one of those movies we try really really hard to enjoy... but, unfortunatelly, I couldn't...
We have one hell of a cast: Scott Adkins, Louis Mandylor (The Quest, Sinners and Saints), Michael Paré (City of the Damned, Streets of Fire) and the amazing Tony Todd (Night of the Living Dead '90, Final Destination).
The producers are the same of Savage Dogs... that one suffered a bit from the "bare knucle" part of the story - it would have been nice to see Adkins, Zaror and Le showcase their abilities...
This one is boring... way boring... the acting itself, isn't that bad. They are all competent actors... but the movie... it's a blend mix of dull moments and some "wannabe" comedy action "80's style", like "Turner and Hooch" or something like that.
The story goes around two debt collectors, with a confused moral compass... there's no flying kick from Adkins, the choreography, here, seems way off, almost clumsy. The action is spread across the movie, but very tamed...
It's a shame, but for evey good title Adkins has, there's a few hits'n'misses...This one, is very very boring...
I gave 5 stars for the cast itself... and I recomend watching this if you are having trouble sleeping, or in a Sunday afternoon, in a family lunch...
Oh, and with some exceptions - the small shootout at the end - this is almost a family friendly movie...
Too bad... It could have been a lot better...
