When a former member of the U.S. Army Special Forces returns to his small hometown in rural Washington State to revive his family's lumber mill business, he discovers that much has changed, as the normally tranquil town is now besieged by drugs, outbreaks of violence and a general feeling of malaise and terror, with many pointing a finger at the influence of a crooked casino where his ex-girlfriend now works as a dancer. Seeking to wreak vengeance, with a four-foot-long 2-by-4 in his hand, and righteousness in his heart, the highly-trained soldier, now the county's sheriff, and his deputy, realizes it's time to bust some heads with a very hard piece of wood.
Most new casinos in the States these days seem to be scams run by Indian "Tribes" , (or Native Americans as they like to be called.) So I was wondering if the evil corrupt casino owner will be such a person. Yeah, right. The creepy and excellent McDonough (Boomtown) looks to be the whitest guy this side of a KKK sheet. The Rock goes down a path well tread by Arnie - and latterly the lisping Steven Seagal. Vengence is mine sayath the lord of the Box Office. A totally missable hit, methinks.
