Did You Know?
Steve Austin was originally offered the part Vinnie Jones plays, but after WWE decided to make the movie in their WWE Films department, they gave Steve Austin the lead role.
(At 11:00) There is a close up of the guard turning the key in a large lock. You can clearly see the lock is already open though.
Sounds like you've had a hard life.
Good thing it's over.
So this flick was by no means great, but it did what it wanted to do,
be a good bad action flick. Swearing, blood, fighting, no CGI, I had a
great time watching it. Which really surprised me cause I HATE stone
cold, but even he was pretty good. If you just wanna turn off your
brain and watch a well done bad action flick, check this out. And yes I
have seen battle royale and the running man, and yes this rips them
both off fairly liberally, but what the hell, an action flick is an
action flick, enjoy it for what it is. And Vinnie Jones is great as the
super evil bad guy. And it even has some social commentary about the
media's influence on our culture. Granted, its heavy handed and
obvious, but seeing as I was expecting a movie on par with a Segal
straight to DVD flick, any level of intelligence is appreciated.
