Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

As far as the action goes, Accident Man is a rip-roaring roundhouse kick of a movie. The fight scenes are expertly choreographed, and Adkins -- a martial arts expert -- is a master of his trade. Ray Stevenson and Ashley Greene also provide admirable support. Fans of the original comic strip will be reassured to hear that the violence remains unflinchingly brutal. But that's where the positives end.

Take away the action sequences, and you're left with a nasty movie that has no likeable characters and an undercurrent of misogyny and homophobia. In one scene, when referring to a girlfriend, Martin says to his male counterparts: "[She's] 26, body of an 18-year-old, brain of a 12-year-old." To which another responds, "Right up my street." This is just one example from a long list of misguided humor that leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
