"The Cutter" is no masterpiece but it's an entertaining movie and above average for production company Nu Image Entertainment, whose movies sometimes suffer from incoherent writing. Chuck Norris fans will be pleased to see Chuck, and the rest of the cast make a good job too.
It's an entertaining movie, but perhaps not one you'd want to watch again and again. Chuck Norris fans would want to have this movie in their collection. Anyone else looking for 90 minutes of entertainment, rent it.
odds are all against you.
Sadly actions are not great either. Chuck Norris throwing punches and shooting a gun surely looks in better shape than Steven Seagal, but that's not saying much because the action scenes and the stunt work themselves are just boring. Shoot-pouts are generic, and the car chase is impossible and unexciting. When the name of Daniel Bernhardt who can do impressive martial arts stunts appears in the opening credits, I expected something good. Sorry, but no such luck; he is completely wasted, not given enough chance to show his skills.
Which leaves us with not-so-great acting from the supporting actors like Joanna Pakula, Tracy Scoggins and Bernie Kopell and silly one-liners from the star. Don't miss the one when a hapless thug is thrown out of the window. That made me really groan.
Chuck plays former FBI this is search warrant hot shot turned private investigator John Shepard. The opening scene shows us Chuck attempting to foil a kidnapping. He ultimately failed and got the kid killed but he did manage to throw the fattest kidnapper out of a window in true Myers-hillbillies-truck fashion so all in all not a bad day. Actually the killing of the kid shook Shepard to his core so when he took his next job protecting an expert diamond cutter, he promised himself he would not fail this time. We don't know how much Chuck charged but being that he was dealing with a diamond cutter we'd like to think Chuck told him"let's talk turkey $20000 you take the whole package." Along with the old man diamond cutter Chuck had to protect his protege who was a gypsy! The reason they needed protection is because they were the only 2 gypsies on earth who could perform this impossible cut that made a diamond priceless and there was a serial killing thief after them. There was also an evil force behind the thief. It was a former nazi officer who made the cutter perform his cut on stones in a concentration camp. He was a mean guy. We wouldn't be surprised if he told the cutter to clean his freaking loop many times a day. Obviously Chuck kicks multiple butts and looked stunning doing it. He also manages to deliver his lines in a very halting way of speaking a la Frank Costanza. The one thing we always expect from an Aaron Norris production is explosions. Well there was only one because we're guessing that's all they had money for but it was a really cool romantic explosion. Of course the two bad guys got blown up and Chuck kept his promise to the gypsies and to himself.
It is always fun to watch Chuck doing his butt whupping bad acting. It's always fun to marvel at what a complete tough guy the total gym can turn you into. What's not fun however is watching a b in which the biggest question is will Chuck give this gypsy a light rash. The plot in this one was just shallow and pedantic. It was pretty boring to tell you the truth. If Chuck wasn't in the movie it would have been a 1star effort. The funniest moments came when Chuck in his typical nice guy way told one of his old FBI buddies to go stuff himself. Then he called him a maggot. It was quite a hot rivalry. As hot as Santa and the bagelry guy? No but still good. This one is still definitely worth a view if for no other reason than it is Chuck's latest film and he was doing legitimate tough guy Chuck stuff but realize going in that you're going to have to have some decent backup laptop entertainment going. Maybe some wormholes or something. Oh and to answer that all important question, no Chuck doesn't get with the gypsy. Smart move, Chuck. Who knows when some gypsy will shrink you and sell you at a yard sale?
