I think this movie is one of the better action movies I've seen in the last year!!

STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN plays his roll well, just when you think he's dead he comes back.

At one time he worked for the US Government and while he was on a mission he got caught and was imprisoned, some wealthy TV producer Purchased him for his new reality show from a central American country that was very corrupt!!

The new reality show has 10 people in it trying to survive to be the last person standing to win their freedom.

Conrad must use his strength and his training to be the last man standing...

I rate this DVD a 5 of 5 stars!!

Buy The Condemned (2007) Now

The Condemned is a World Wrestling Entertainment-produced film starring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin as Jack Conrad. You could be forgiven for assuming this movie is a propaganda vehicle for wrestlers looking to break into acting, with a plot that's no deeper than brawny men beating the tar out of each other. And you'd be right.

But The Condemned has higher goals in mind. It features an online game show in which dangerous convicts are purchased by a wealthy television producer (Robert Mammone as Breckel) for use as contestants. Each contestant has 30-hours to live before an ankle-bracelet explodes. Additionally, a ripcord on the bracelet can trigger the bomb ten seconds later. Ten people enter an island rigged with cameras and cameramen, one killer leaves.

The Condemned divides its time between the killers offing each other, the technical team conducting the game show, and the FBI investigation trying to stop the madness. As each killer dies, the game show's website gets more and more hits. The more violent the movie gets, the more the audience loves it. The Condemned slyly begins blurring the lines between the audience watching the film and the audience in the movie.

Conrad is actually an undercover Delta Force operative, of course, and sets out to prove he's bigger and badder than everyone else on the island. It's no easy task, however -the villainous team-up of Ewan McStanley (Vinnie Jones) and Saiga (Masa Yamaguchi) set the bar low with rape and murder under their belts.

It's the rape scene that proves a turning point for the producers and the film. The technical team begins having second thoughts about the show after that, and a rebellion of sorts breaks out, only to be brutally crushed by the usual tools of archvillainy deceit, greed, and murder. By the time McStanley's in-game violence spills into the production studio, they've long since lost their grip on morality.

The Condemned is an ugly film about ugly characters. Its biggest flaw is that Conrad isn't particularly likable. The movie takes its premise too far. There's nobody to really root for. Midway through, The Condemned drastically changes tone from glorifying violence to soundly condemning it, which will likely turn a lot of wrestling fans off. Viewers may not be pleased to discover that the title isn't just about the contestants it's about the audience.

Read Best Reviews of The Condemned (2007) Here

A lethal agent from the special forces, is recruited for starring a true human slaughter transmitted by Internet, whose goal must be 40 millions of people.

Here is the drama. To watch this ferocious spectacle forcedly brings us back to the very times of the gladiators in the ancient Rome but with the same morbid vision. A moving thriller that underlined beneath the plot an issue worthy to comment. Who is really the twisted mind?

Steve Austin and Vinnie Jones are a hard to die team; besides a kinetic and witty script conform a tense movie.
