Warning, spiolers! This has got to be the all time worst movie I have ever seen in my life. I am so angry I spent money on this movie after hearing all the wonderful reviews. Breakdown time: 1) Action scenes: The action scenes are so dumb they are insulting. It is the typical 80s action style sequence were a group of armed men stand around like idiots as "Tom" does crazy ninja karate crap and slaughters them one by one. These sequences become so formula that everytime he gets into a pinch you say to yourself "Here he goes again!" and watch as he does karate and shoots groups of armed men as the armed men just sort of stand there and take it one by one. These rehashed scenes are spread throught the movie and are predictable and boring. 2) Character development: There is NONE! We get no depth into his past life, at all! The characters are very shallow. Each side character spends small amounts of time on-stage and we get to know very little about them. 3) Side plots: The single side-plot about his son who gets beat up and fights back at the end is very shallow, boring and un-needed. 4) Tom's wife: Everytime she talks its like I am watching some boring made for T.V. soap opera filled with cheesy lines, bad acting and cheesy over dramatization. She seems very LITTLE concerned that her family could get whacked by the mob but very MUCH concerned with the made for T.V. soap opera aspect of "being lied to." 5) Gore: The gore was way too over-the-top. It felt like I was watching a cheesy Troma movie like "Toxic Avenger" or "Bad Taste." The way over done gore was almost comic. 6) The "rehash scenes" factor: They keep rehashing the same violence squence, the same old "father son conflict" sequence and make them so similar to each other that each one feels like a slightly altered view of the last scene of the movie. 7) Not much "mob stalking" The mob never really stalked the family long enough or to the point were I truely felt like I was in suspense. Infact, no mob member ever stepped foot inside the house. What a freakin dud. Facts: 1) Over the top sex and gore does not make for a good movie if it is out of place. 2) Just because a famous actor from Lord of the Rings is in this movie does not make it good.
