While Samuel L. Jack­son’s CV isn’t free of dud movies, what he’s do­ing run­ning around in this sort of thing is be­yond me. OK, it might have been fun mak­ing it but watch­ing it is mostly a chore. An un­o­rig­i­nal beat-’ em- up, it in­volves a US fire­fighter be­ing kidnapped and forced to scrap for his life in a se­ries of fights broad­casted over the net for profit by a ma­ni­a­cal busi­ness­man ( guess who that is). All the ob­vi­ous blood­sport genre trap­pings are here, but it’s all been done bet­ter be­fore.
