Not bad for a WWE movie, McMahon releases a few of its entertainment-management techniques in the big screen. I thought this would be somewhat corny, despite the camera shots in the fight scenes, I still kinda liked this. Wouldnt really have watched this if it wasnt for the interesting combination of Vinnie Jones and Austin anyway. Plot: An adrenalin-charged action thriller, "The Condemned" tells the story of Jack Conrad, who is awaiting the death penalty in a corrupt Central American prison. He is "purchased" by a wealthy television producer and taken to a desolate island where he must fight to the death against nine other condemned killers from all corners of the world, with freedom going to the sole survivor. The producer films the illegal event, airing the killings live and uncensored onto the internet.

I'll break it down real easy for you: The Running Man meets Battle Royale, with some OUT OF THIS WORLD Michael Bay-esque cinematography! Oh, and of course the big, bald wrestler is Texan! (I died every single time he opened his mouth to spurt out those ridiculously cheesy lines that were given to him!) And really, what was with the completely random moral turn of this movie? Personally, I know I'll be glued to the screen when some brilliant fool decides to produce a show like this!

A pretty decent if violent action film with backing from the WWE. The story is pretty good, although it starts to get a bit repetitive as it goes on. Reminded me slightly of the Running Man. Overall a lot better than I expected and Vinnie Jones is good as the bad guy, as always.
