Audience Reviews for Direct Contact

Why oh why do these old guys keep making these crap action films??
I downloaded it, surely no one would actually buy this!!!

Its the usual thing, Dolph killing loads of bad guys and saving the girl, he gets beaten up a bit and shot in the arm of course but that pretty much happens to every tough guy in every tough guy action flick.

Effects and stunts are crap apart from a few reasonable car smashes but its nothing we haven't seen before and the acting is...well...dire, oh yes I said dire.

Forget it, its shit, just like Van Damme and Seagal, Dolph keeps rolling out one turd after another and somehow manages to be able to keep doing it!!. Surely he must know he's making straight to the trash heap crap!!?

¨Direct Contact¨ is a bad movie where the plot is generic, the direction is laughable, the editing sloppy, the acting terrible even Lundgren´s acting is bad in some scenes and that why I don´t give it half star more BUT it is a bloody B-Action movie that will keep you entertained from start to end.
