'4 Got 10' [Blu ray]
(Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Vivica A. Fox, Michael Paré, Johnny Messner, et al / Blu ray / NR / 2015 / Cinedigm)
Overview: A wounded man (Messner) wakes up in the desert surround by bodies, no memory and with three million dollars ash. On the run, from a ruthless DEA Agent (Lundgren), the Mexican Cartel Boss (Trejo) and the local sheriff (Paré), he discovers the more he remembers the less he wants to know about who he really is.
DVD Verdict: Well, in truth, this movie is well worth seeing ... and I say it like that, as I didn't think it would do it for me. A case of the same-old same-old's, or so I feared, but no ... it's rather good!
Brian Barnes (Johnny Messner) wakes up in the desert wounded and with no memory and no idea why he's surrounded by eight bodies, a van with four million in cash and a van full of cocaine. Brian is pursued by not only notorious drug lord Danny Perez (Danny Trejo) who desperately want his money back, and DEA Agent Rooker (Dolph Lundgren).
They all, in turn, are also being hunted by the corrupt Sheriff Olson (Michael Pare) who will stop at nothing to get his hand on the new found fortune. On the run, Brian discovers the more he remembers the less he wants to know about who he really is.
Of course, and you knew it had to, conveniently the various plot strands come together for contrived shoot outs (scattered liberally throughout) as the bad guys drop one by one. Brian gets his memories back bit by bit and completes the jigsaw ... whilst Lundgren just tries to stay one step ahead!
Sure the film wants to be a hip, smart thriller, and for the most part it succeeds, but the coming together of plot lines allows it to drop its own ball all too often, sadly. That said, having both Vivica A. Fox along with Danny Trejo in the movie, in their action "moments" only reminds us of the delicious shoot 'em up Tarantino/Rodriguez films - which ain't half bad, if you ask me.
