Review: This was my first movie viewing of an Adam Copeland movie and i wasn’t overly impressed. Adams screen presence wasn’t strong enough to have audiences root for him and his acting was very wooden. My next port of call to save this movie was Thomas Jane. TJ got a pretty cool action scene where he got to eliminate some intruders, reminded me of his good old shoot ’em up years.
The concept of the movie was fun and could have been such a cool movie but for me the lead star didn’t have the charisma to carry the movie. Kelsey Grammar ditches his calm soothing Fraser esque types for a deadly mob boss who is a much different character to what i’m used to seeing Grammer play and he nailed it. I would love to see him play more villain roles.
Denise Richards, while being second billed only has a mere couple of minutes on screen.
Katrina Norman was the standout of the movie. She’s a member of Copelands team and gets some pretty badass moments! Her name should have made the cover for sure!!
While the movie has a lot happening throughout, it never quite takes off! It could have been a sort of Con Air meets Money Train but we don’t leave the station. I’m sorry action fans but avoid this. I would say at most this is for fans of Adam Copeland.
