The Condemned ★ 2007 (R)

Violent grade D actioner does exactly what it's supposed to and no more. Media slime Ian (Mammone) hits on a new reality concept: drop ten deathrow inmates onto a remote island and tell them that the last survivor earns freedom and a paycheck while Internet subscribers pay to watch a live feed. Probably the only recognizable faces are former WWE wrestler Austin and Brit soccer star turned screen villain Jones but everyone is pretty much dead meat. 113m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc . US Steve Austin, Vinnie Jones, Robert Mammone, Victoria (Tory) Mussett, Masa Yamaguchi, Manu Bennett, Marcus Johnson, Christopher Baker, Rick Hoffman, Luke Pegler, Samantha Healy, Madeleine West, Emelia Burns, Nathan Jones, Angie Milliken; D: Scott Wiper; W: Scott Wiper, Rob Hedden; C: Ross Emery.
