I just watched the movie this weekend...it was an advanced screening
Unfortunately for Randy, it's obvious that he is the least experienced of the actors in the film...he is still very rough around the edges. I never watched the first Scorpion King movie, so I don't know how it compares, but this one was nothing spectacular. Most of the actors do a decent job and the sets are realistic for the most part, so I'm assuming it was originally planned for a theatrical release. In some scenes, it's obvious that they cut back on their effects budget, but that could of been after the movie was done filming for that matter. If they were expecting a real fighter to have the same on-screen presence as a pro wrestler, they were definitely mistaken. OK, I'm done bashing Randy's acting...I think it was mostly a case of him taking on a large role too quickly.
