Wild Card: Blu Ray Review

Wild Card: Blu Ray Review

Rating: M
Released by Roadshow Home Entertainment

The Stath returns with yet another action escapade that showcases what the British Van Damme is shaping up to be.

From the director of Con Air, Simon West, Statham is Nick Wild, a security expert and gambling addict working in Las Vegas. Wild finds a friend's beaten and abused by three unknown men - and he sets out to avenge her. But, Wild's dipping into this world has greater ramifications than he realises.

Wild Card is more drama than action thriller, with really only two fight sequences punctuating the scenes; it's a frustration if you're going for a Statham smackdown and to be honest, the dialogue is not perhaps the best or strongest.

Milo Ventimiglia makes a weak bad guy and that doesn't help matters as the story progresses. It may aim for brooding with Statham as Wild but it doesn't cut the mustard.

This Wild Card just ain't worth a gamble. Unless you're a real die hard Statham fan.
