Like your action movies loud, fast, and violent? World Wrestling Entertainment has just your cup of testosterone with The Condemned, a derivative but watchable punch-out starring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, one of its top draws. The mountainous Austin is a former Special Forces soldier who is retrieved from a Latin American jail by an unscrupulous television producer to participate in a pay-per-view death match in which ten criminals must fight each other to the death. The other contestants (which include fellow athlete-turned-actor Vinnie Jones) are all cut from the most villainous of cloths, but Austin is, of course, Wrongly Accused; in no way does this prevent him from opening a ten-gallon drum of beatdown on his competitors. Scott Wiper's direction is overwrought, and the script's attempt to make a statement on violence is pointless, but Austin is a more charismatic lead than John Cena in the WWE's previous action movie effort, The Marine. And the premise, which has been tapped by everything from The Most Dangerous Game to Battle Royale, is pure comic book fun, and should please B-movie fans who felt turned off by Grindhouse's relentless tongue-in-cheek tone. -- Paul Gaita

this movie is filmed beautifully, with good actors.

lots of violence, but no gore. some cool explosions.

no nudity, but some good cleavage.

expect to get hit over the head a lot by Disney lovin' women who keep saying that violent movies are evil.
[trust me it gets really annoying]

4.0 out of 5 stars Good in a trashy way Sept. 23 2007
Format:DVD
I love these types of over-the-top action movies but was feeling a bit apprehensive when learning it was a WWE production, since "See No Evil" and "The Marine" were barely watcheable. This one is the best of that lot, starring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin as an inmate sent, along with 9 others, to a deserted island in a fight to the death, all for the benefit of a sadistic reality show mogul. The setup is disturbingly similar to the Japanese action clasic "Battle Royale" and the whole film is riddled with cliches but at the end of the day "The Condemned" still delivers cheap, cheesy and fun thrills in spades.

I personally ejoyed this movie better then the The Marine (Unrated Edition) with Cena because of the plot and the acting. It only makes sense that "Stone Cold" Steve Austin would get his own action vehicle. If WWE films was going to put premier wrestlers John Cena in an action movie and "Kane" in a horror flick, then why not put one of your most famous wrestlers in a no holds barred brawl of a movie Steve Austin does bring new meaning to term "gravity." With a neck as thick as his skull and two eyes that glower menacingly from beneath a shaved head, he not only looks like a stripped tree trunk, in the new action adventure The Condemned, he seems like he might topple from the screen onto the front row at any second.

The Condemned follows the story of a millionaire megalomaniac who decides to take death row inmates from various prisons around the world and pit them against each other in a battle to the death. He winner gets his freedom. The world gets to watch the action over the internet. Unbeknownst to the producers, one of the contestants is wrongfully imprisoned special-forces soldier Joe Conrad (played by Austin).

Every once in a while we all need a film that doesn't promise high art, or any kind of art for that matter. It is always nice to turn off your brain and watch guys beat the crap out of each other on film. No pretense at all, just pure violent, fun. At first glance that is exactly what you get in this film. Sadly though, the film unravels on itself. During the making of the film, it seems that the cameraman had an epileptic fit every time he had to shoot any kind of fight scene. You would expect a film about men killing each other would be more violent. Several of the completely painful subplots defiled such a simple premise as "ten men enter, one man leaves".

5.0 out of 5 stars My Review of the Condemned Sept. 20 2007
Format:DVD
A lot of reviews are saying that Stone Cold was not up to par for this movie and the critics say that the movie sucked. Well I suggest those movie critics retract their statements and comments that they made. Stone Cold is a force to be reckoned with and proved to be perfect for the part. Vinnie Jones has always been a good actor as far as I am concerned and you really love to hate him. The fight scenes are action packed, however some viewers may find the whole story line a little disturbing. Although it does make for an intense watch.

I recommend this movie to those that are old enough to watch it and I am sure that fans of Stone Cold Steve Austin will agree it is worth a Stone Cold Stunner. I give it two thumbs up.
