THE ENFORCER Review: VCR Action In A Digital Era
Somewhere on the net, someone referred to this movie as “A perfect film to watch on your VCR”, though his intentions were clearly to mock the film, in my book, he couldn´t have made a higher praise.
With that title seen million times, the guys from Millennium Films brings a generic action thriller with elements seen countless of times before in a limited budget production where Antonio Banderas shines above the whole cast, proving once again that he’s a terrific action hero, in a dark, violent but also satisfying flick that despite its flaws, with a start that seems confused what path to take, opting finally for a typical action spectacle that carries the legacy of 80’s and 90’s low budget action flicks, that nowadays struggles to survive in streaming and limited cinema runs.
The film directed by Richard Hughes presemts a straight well paced story, where Banderas becomes an Enforcer in order to save a 15 year-old runaway girl, who’s been abducted by a ruthless prostitution network ruled by a dangerous gang…
An honest product with good action sequences that brings nostalgia into the fans that still long for the triumphant return to this type of cinema but above all a good evasive entertainment that success on giving the audience a thrilling ride of enjoyment.
An action-packed experience you don´t want to miss!
