I haven’t seen a Val Kilmer film in a while.  I was kind of hoping for Island of Dr. Moreau caliber lunacy or Tombstone coolness, but Kilmer is kind of sleepwalking here.  I’m curious as to why he took the role. The clumsy swipes at Halliburton, the Minutemen, and the Iraq war?  A paycheck?  Whatever, it starts off looking like a First Blood rip-off but soon turns into Bad Day at Black Rock minus the stellar cast and fabulous desert vistas, but with lots of extra blood.  Even at 90 minutes it’s padded with flat sex scenes and lengthy transitions.  Rewatch First Blood and Bad Day instead.
