A Good Bustem Up! Worth A Watch.
July 31, 2016
I read many of the reviews on this movie before I watched it but finally decided that it was time to check it out. I gave it a 5 star to help elevate the rating because it deserves a watch. There is a reason that the prevalent star rating is 3.5 and that is because this is a good old fashioned revenge movie that balances some light humor with some serious physical contact, guns and blood. John T is getting a bit old for this but that is the point of this movie so it works well. Christopher Meloni is a great supporting actor and I would like to see him in more movies. He is not your lead actor type but when he is cast in a supporting role with a good lead to partner with, he raises the level of the movie exponentially. Synopsis: ex black ops husband (John T) loses wife in a "random" gang hit and has to come out of retirement to figure out why. Good friend and partner from his wet work days (Chris M) partners up and has been keeping his finger on the pulse of things since retirement. These old professionals stack up the bodies and take a few hits themselves until they unravel the conspiracy. Rated R for violence with some scenes of scantily clad women... (no full nudity) and I do not recall any serious bad language. The plot is a bit thin in a few places but the action burns enough to keep you engaged. I like that the fight scenes were classic without shaky cam so you see some good fight choreography. Worth a rental but a good pick if it hits Amazon Prime. Enjoy!
