    Updated exploitation at it’s finest, January 9, 2011

    This was a great modern exploitation movie. It had some decent acting, and contrary to some other reviews – The Rock hardly speaks in it, which is one of the things that makes it a great flick. He has tapped back into that imposing WWE persona, and brought it to the big screen again. His presence, his attitude and his demeanor is absolutely perfect for the role. There isn’t an ounce of Tooth Fairy in this performance.

    The overall story and how it plays out is very much influenced by the genre. There are so many great examples of this in the film, it really is a treat if you’re into that. It’s a really fine example of modern exploitation flimmaking. I don’t know where CBS films is going to go, but hopefully they will not have given up on this type of movie.

    Don’t go into this movie thinking it’s a highbrow heist film or savvy thriller – it’s a visceral blow-em-up action flick that is probably best watched with your wife at the grocery store or at her sewing class. Crack open a beer, open up a bag of Little Smokies and sit on the couch for an hour and a half of blowing stuff up and sweet, sweet revenge – 80’s style.

    I know this movie did not do that well money wise, but I thought it was the Rock at his finest. He was made for this role and performed it like a veteran actor. It is similiar to other movies involving revenge, but this movie takes it to a much higher and violent level. The action is very fast paced and actual bordered on brutal killings, which are great and crowd pleasing as you root for the protagonist to “Get Even”. Billy Bob Thorton is good as always while playing a burned out detective.
    I can not say too much more or it will spoil the different plot twists in the movie especially towards the end. You don’t have to be a Dwyane Johnson fan to really love this movie. Johnson simply excels in his role due to his physicality in looking the part he is playing, and the bonus is the action and excitement. Great movie. If you saw “Walking Tall” and liked it, you will love this one all that much more as it is a much better movie.
