Vendetta, 2015 - ★★½

Vendetta, 2015 - ★★½

Here in England we have a grand tradition of pantomime, Americas got wrestling & WWE movies, they're essentially the same thing - serviceable acting, rehashed plots and easy to define bad guys to hiss.

'Vendetta' is another WWE Studios slice of trash, the second one directed by the Canadian twins of blood Jen & Sylvia Soska. Who bring a bloody, slightly nasty 80's tone to this otherwise cheesy corrupt prison flick. Unlike the Soska sisters last WWE opus its at least watchable this time around, thanks to haggard looking Dean Cains badassery, Big Shows surprisingly effective unborn baby killing bad guy and Michael Eklund as the weaselly warden. Final 3rd is pretty much none stop action, that actually made me crave authentic 80's prison movies like Lock Up and the Penitentiary films. It won't take you long to find something better, but its still one of the more entertaining movies on WWE Studios roster.
