Movie Info

Chance Templeton (Rick Yune of The Fast and the Furious) has every reason to be angry. At a young age he learned to channel the pain of witnessing his parents' grisly murder through an intense mentorship with a professional hitman (The Thing's Keith David). Ever since, he's been a remorseless contract-killing machine. But when his latest hit turns out to be the pop singer whom his dear adopted brother (Bokeem Woodbine) has been assigned to protect, Chance finally comes across a kill he can't make. Now the bounty is on the heads of Chance and the ones he loves, and, if he wants to make it out alive, he must use his lethal skills against the underworld that bestowed them to him. The Fifth Commandment was also penned by Yune..

    Though a substantial plot must not be expected of The Fifth Commandment, the action scenes were entertaining enough thus making this a fairly satisfying watch.

    A stylish, thrilling, fast-paced and exhilarating action-packed thrill-ride. A slickly crafted film with lots of homage to the action classics of the 1980`s mixed in with the cool style and charisma of today. It`s packed with sensational fight scenes and gun battles that roar with intense velocity. A wickedly cool action-thriller. Rick Yune is terrific, he writes, produces and stars in the film showing his commitment and dedication to the piece. Bokeem Woodbine is fantastic. Keith David is excellent.

    This was basically Ninja Assassin-meets-Romeo Must Die with half the budget and even less of the acting. 'm a big fan of a multi-culti cast, but I'd love for them to be in quality films. No disrespect to Rick Yune, I loved him in The Fast and the Furious, but I was unimpressed with this flick. Everything about it was stale: the acting, the shootouts, the fight scenes; all of it. Perhaps the only highlight of the film was its original take on contract killing, to which I give Yune kudos. Other than that, pass this one up.

    <i>The Fifth Commandment</i> is a tarnish on the directing resume of Jesse V. Johnson.<p>The story for this 90 minute picture is quite fitting for an action thriller of this caliber; however, some plot holes and poor writing really hurt the film as a whole. The introduction is similar to an 80's shoot 'em up, which is one of the more enjoyable parts of the movie, but once the story advances years forward, it turns into a bland waste of time.</p><p>As it should, <i>The Fifth Commandment</i> has its fair share of action. Still, the sound effects, editing, camera work, and background music all contribute in a negative way, resulting in mediocre sequences of violence.</p><p>There are some recognizable faces in Rick Yune, Keith David, Bokeem Woodbine, and Dania Ramirez. None of these names are a big help. Rick Yune has the personality of an assassin, but his dialogue is just horrendous. Dania Ramirez is pretty, but she comes across as annoying and unimpressive. Both Keith David and Bokeem Woodbine are the only ones that contribute a little in the acting department.</p><p><i>The Fifth Commandment</i> has a lot of negatives, which makes it an easy film to pass on. Therefore, feel free to watch something else.</p>
