Review D+

In a catastrophically messy action-movie mash-up, The Dirty Dozen meets Survivor and The Most Dangerous Game in The Condemned.

This World Wrestling Entertainment production starring "Stone Cold" Steve Austin marks the first time this year I walked into an advance screening of an elaborate American action film and wasn't wanded for cell phones or recording devices. Maybe that's because 90 percent of the action scenes look, sound and move as if they were shot, mixed and edited on a BlackBerry. A pirated version might be an improvement.

The Condemned (Lionsgate) Starring Steve Austin, Vinnie Jones, Robert Mammone, Rick Hoffman. Directed by Scott Wiper. Rated R. Time 113 minutes.
