Trivia

Although the poster imagery shows actor Terry Crews holding a metal hammer with the name "John Henry", this movie has no relation to the DC Comics superhero "Steel" whose name is John Henry Irons and (upon Superman's death) decided to create a heavily armored "steel" suit with his main weapon being a smart sledgehammer to carry on the Man of Steel's legacy.

Worst Film I Have Seen In Many Years
10 February 2020 | by denverdaveonlineSee all my reviews

Everyone involved in this film should be embarrassed. It has a terrible story line, unnecessary extreme profanity, and is overall a two-thumbs-down candidate for "worst film ever made". It is an atrocious assault and assassination of the character of John Henry who was deemed a legendary hero and this movie is so awful it seems like it is a deliberate attempt to do so.

Terry Crews should be much more selective about the movie roles he chooses in the future or his career is going in the toilet where this movie belongs.
