\"Pain has a new name.\"
Not to be confused with the Jeremy Irons movie of the same name, this
"Damage" is full of hard-hitting fights. (It would be cool to see Irons
in a punchfighting movie though. A man can dream...) John Brickner
(Austin) was in jail for manslaughter for 5 years and is now just been
paroled and looking for work. He finds work becoming a bouncer for a
dive bar. Reno (Goggins) is a hustler who watches Brickner and invites
him to fight in a underground tournament. At first Brickner says no
way, but a phone call from the victim's wife asking for $250,000,
forces him to fight.
Can he fight his way to the top? Steve Austin does a pretty decent job
as Brickner. You care about his character...but this is a
punch-fighting flick and we don't want to see maudlin acting. One of
the plot points is that Brickner has 13-inch fists. When he punches
once, it breaks a opponents ribcage. The movie forgets what it is. I
like the effort it was making, but the most exciting moments are the
They deliver in spades. They are brutal and bloody.
I'm happy they are still making movies like this. Undisputed III (an
upcoming review) should be very entertaining.
"Damage" is cool fight flick worth renting! For more insanity, please

I feel the first thing I should do is confess that I'm not a wrestling
fan - I've hardly watched the sport, and I've never seen Steve Austin
in action. Obviously, he wasn't the reason why I rented this movie.
What did get me to rent it was my love of B movies - I watch them all
the time. This one got me interested since it promised it would have a
lot of action (fighting) in it.
Now here comes my second confession - I didn't think very much of
"Damage". True, it does look pretty good for what was a Canadian low
budget movie. And Austin, though he's no actor, does bring to the
screen a strong presence and wisely doesn't try to be very expressive
in his somewhat limited dialogue. But despite all that, I found the
movie to be somewhat boring. There's far too much talk, as well as
multiple subplots that slow the action from coming. And when the action
does come, it's somewhat disappointing. The fights are mostly filmed
with the camera zoomed way in, and with somewhat quick cuts, making the
action hard to follow at times. The fights are supposed to be brutal,
but I never got the feeling the fighters were suffering or in pain at
This isn't a BAD movie - it's just somewhat bland and disappointing,
considering they got a skilled fighter and a premise that would
indicate wall-to-wall action. You can safely skip this one..
