Why doesn't he just do a remake of Dirty Harry? Give us what we want. He looks, sounds and acts just like Clint. Will he ever get out from under that shadow? Go make some spaghetti westerns while you're at it. They'd be great. So it's hard to separate father from son so it's all like deja vu. Oh this movie? The villian and henchman we've all seen a million times. Nothing new here. It's an ok movie. Nothing special, nothing bad. The dumb act on the phone to the shrink gets a bit tired I noticed. Go, go, go kill, sure why not.

I really want to see Scott Eastwood get better roles. Perhaps because I am a fan of his father, Clint. He looks so much like his old man and even sounds like him. I just want to see this guy succeed. Having said that, this film is terrible. Holy cow is it bad. It's more like a dark comedy spoofing thriller movies than a legit thriller. Mel Gibson does all of his lines behind a desk or on a phone like a dialup psychologist. Terrible Terrible Terrible film.

It's hard to know where to start with this film .

It's so bad on so many levels .

The worst thing about this mess is not that Mel Gibson is just picking up a pay check and is as bad as I've ever seen him .

It's not that the script and dialogue and acting are all shockingly bad .

It's not because Scott Eastwood is just doing an impression of his old man most of the time and is going through the motions .

The worst thing about this film is it's bloody dull and as I've alway said , that's unforgivable in a movie .

Scott Eastwood plays a reformed sociopath who journeys to a remote island to investigate the mystery behind his brother's demise, but soon ends up facing off with more than he bargained for.

This movie is so bad that they even changed the name to Wake ( what a terrible title!) to try to get more people to watch it . I don't think it worked .

One other thing. What has Famke Janssen done to her face ? She used to be stunningly pretty but she has messed herself up with plastic surgery. What a shame .

As "Dangerous" (2021 release; 100 min.) opens, we are introduced to Dylan, a/k/a "D", who is on parole living in an apartment with a electronic ankle bracelet. He get the occasional letter from his younger brother who lives on Guardian Island in the Pacific Northwest. Then one day, someone breaks into the apartment, and before we know it, an FBI Special Agent is on the scene but D has fled (breaking his parole along the way). At this point we are 10 min into the movie but to tell you more of the plot would spoil your viewing experience.

Couple of comments: this is the latest film from director David Hackl, best known for "Saw V". Here he concocts a movie that is billed as an "action thriller". The problem is that someone forgot to write a script that makes any sense (if a script was even written?). It didn't take long before I had this sinking feeling in my stomach that yes, this is possibly, ok more than likely, the worst movie I have seen this year. Do you want to know exactly when? The moment that Mel Gibson (as D's therapist) appears, that's when. The few scenes that Gibson is in are so incredibly poorly acted, it's just beyond the pale. Not that Scott Eastwood or Famke Janssen (the other 'big names') are much better. The so-called action scenes are laughable, frankly. It all comes with a feeling of watching a B (or even C) movie (at best).

Let me be upfront: I knew absolutely nothing about this film before I saw it this weekend. So why did I even go see this movie? For no other reason than that it plays at my local art-house theater here in Cincinnati. Yes, the same art-house theater where I have seen hundreds of movies over the years, often with good and even great results. I simply trust them to schedule movies that are worth my while. Why oh why they decided to schedule this horrible, horrible film, I haven't the faintest. The Friday early evening screening where I saw this at was attended better than I had expected (8 people in total including myself). All that aside, I cannot in good conscience recommend this film to anyone. But hey, don't take my word for it. If you are in the mood for a (supposed) action thriller or simple are a fan of Scott Eastwood or Famke Janssen, check it out in the theater (while you still can), on VOD, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.

I'd call this one of the much better B films I've seen lately, but it's too bad the novice filmmakers didn't put in more effort that could've elevated this to A film status.

Production designer turned novice producer and director David Hackl chose to focus more on cliches and directed his cast to play dumb in attempting humor. We're all tired of the cliched funny looking loud redneck bad guy. Then having Kevin Durand's talent wasted posing as a cliched Dr. Evil and being lost in his duties was cringe. Even Scott Eastwood's character was poorly directed, but luckily his character was elevated with Mel Gibson's character as their dynamics was hilarious. I felt that dynamic was underutilized. Even the rest of the cast were poorly directed and looked lost for the most part.

Then we have newb writer Christopher Borrelli who actually came up with a nice story with great twists and turns, but the execution was lacklustre. Had a seasoned writer looked over the script, I'm sure there'd be changes to elevate the screenplay. At 99 min long, it felt longer with many long dragged out and unnecessary scenes - and characters. The pacing was also slow and dragging. What even was the point of having Tyrese Gibson and Famke Janssen's character written in, when they were just unnecessary filler with little to no character development. The screenplay needed about 15 mins of fluff omitted, and another 30 mins added in utilizing Gibson and Janssen's character better, as well as making Eastwood's one-man-army character much more exciting. Or omit Gibson and Janssen's character all together.

But in general, the casting was great, and Mel Gibson shined (and was hilarious), but most of the leads were so underused, it felt they were only cast to add value to the film. The score was actually on point, especially for a B film, and the cinematography decent. The underground set and hidden entry they created was actually quite awesome. You wont see that one coming.

I feel if the directing and writing of the characters had been more serious - instead of acting like cartoon dummy bad guys, this film could've been a hit. It felt lost trying to decide if it's an action film (of which any little action was boring), or a dark comedy thriller, that was riddled with cliches.

Nevertheless, I saw it to the end, and actually enjoyed it - albeit noticing the small details that could've elevated this production to another level. For the novice filmmakers, I feel it's still a win, because I've seen some terrible films from seasoned filmmakers lately. Thus it's deserving of my 7/10.

"Dangerous" is an Action - Thriller movie in which we watch a sociopath going on a remote island to attend his brother's funeral and investigate his mysterious death. There he finds out more than he could ever imagine and he needs to deal with something new.

I did not have high expectations from this movie but I have to admit that I enjoyed it because it was simple and good to spend your time with. It contained some nice action scenes that in combination with the mysterious plot created an interesting movie. In addition to this, the direction which was made by David Hackl was good and he did a good job on the way he presented his main character and his behavior. The interpretation of Scott Eastwood who played as Dylan 'D' Forrester was simple but good enough for this movie. Lastly, I have to say that "Dangerous" is an average action movie but good enough to spend your time with.
