Trivia

  • Although the poster imagery shows actor Terry Crews holding a metal hammer with the name "John Henry", this movie has no relation to the DC Comics superhero "Steel" whose name is John Henry Irons and (upon Superman's death) decided to create a heavily armored "steel" suit with his main weapon being a smart sledgehammer to carry on the Man of Steel's legacy.

Clearly qualified in the physique department, Crews is an actor with enough charisma and range to carry either gritty genre adventures or more cartoony showdowns; but Forbes' tonal uncertainty and a stiff script leave him stranded here, in a world that lacks the gravity to put his conscience-driven reticence in context.

Once the picture finally gets around to what it’s supposed to be doing, it almost turns exciting and visceral, and it kind of makes sense. Nothing shows viscera and blood to better advantage than white on white clothing and decor — spattered and arterial sprayed. All a bit too little entirely too late, here.
