Thoughts on Puncture Wounds

 

Characters – John is a former soldier that returns from war with PTSD, h wants to put his life back in order, but his good deed of protecting a woman, now he uses all his combat training to take out the people that took everything he loved. Hollis is the ruthless pimp that forces his girls to work with promise of drugs, he kills anyone that gets in his way and his money. This is quite a generic villain that has no remorse for anybody or anything he does. Bennett is a drug smuggler that works as most of a middle man for Hollis, but not for him.

PerformancesCung Le can handle the combat scenes well, he doesn’t need to give the best acting performance because his character is generic as they come. Dolph Lundgren is a good villain, much like Le he handles the combat well, but the acting isn’t the most difficult part of the film.

StoryThe story is the by the book action movie, it is good guy does the right thing only to find himself stuck in the middle of a bigger battle with a crime lord that will stop at nothing to kill him. This is an action movie that follows the rules and never tests the audience, it is easy to watch for the fans of the genre and will keep you entertained for the time it runs through.

ActionThe action is everything you expect, we have good hand to hand combat and moments of shooting, it works for the genre of the film.

SettingsThe film takes place in the big city that is riddled with crime, it shows the crimes happening in the world and how the people can hide away from it.

Final ThoughtsThis is an easy to watch action film that plays the books well for action film fans, nothing too memorable and fun enough.
