VIOLENCE—How does viewing violence in movies affect families? Answer

NUDITY—Why are humans supposed to wear clothes? Answer

Viewer Comments
…complete with graphic violence, terrible language, and nudity. I felt completely violated and cheated after seeing it. It was so terrible that I couldn’t bear to watch half of it. I spent most of the movie looking at the floor. I would have left early if I hadn’t ridden with my friends. I definitely would not recommend anyone to see this movie. don’t waste your money or time!

…below average, the only good part was with Anthony Anderson and Tom Arnold at the end.

This was a very good action movie. It deals with bad cops and people trying to stop them. This is not for kids or people who get offended when the wind blows. If you like action movies, then this one is for you. Otherwise wait for “Pokémon.” There was too much bad-mouthing, but what do you expect these days from Hollywood.

Despite all the fight scenes, noise and glorified violence, I actually fell asleep in the theatre. First time I’ve ever done that. don’t see this movie.

If you want to see complete action, then go and spend your 10 bucks on this movie. But if you want to use even 1% of your brain throughout the film, don’t waste your time. The action in this movie is even more unrealistic than others, and the plot is a complete cliche. I was only surprised once during the entire movie. The rest of the movie consists of swear words—so many that I lost count. God’s name was definitely used, complete with all those other terrible words. There was absolutely terrible lesbian like scenes and dancing in a nightclub. There was lots of completely nude girls with guys goggling, and even though the main character, Steven, was not involved with these nightclubs, the rest of the characters were. Even though I can’t say this movie is boring; I could say this movie is shallow. Don’t waste your money…

Movie Critics

…bone-crunching, metal-ripping violence…
—The Hollywood Reporter

…[Seagal is] puffy-looking, sluggish and resolutely uncharismatic…
—Todd McCarthy, Variety
…thoroughly incomprehensible construction that passes for a story…
—Chuck Schwartz, Cranky Critic
