Steel (1997)

Throw together Eraser, Shaq and Batman and what do you get? Something like Steel.

I never knew Shaq could act and... he can't. Really. His set of expressions is so limited, but if you've watched (and enjoyed) Arnold's movies you'll know that's not always a bad thing! He does have charisma, though his relations with other characters falter. Their bonds... there's always something missing.

The movie: a farce of a military weapon development project gone wrong, feels neither like a real action movie or a real action comedy, it's something in between, and as the criminals run rampant and the Man of Steel jumps in like RoboCop to save the day - only he's a vigilante too - it all comes across a bit more ridiculous than I think is intended.

I wonder if the directors just didn't have the balls to tell Shaq to change up his expressions, or demeanor, or anything else.

It's entertaining. The costume designs are fun - in a B-movie nineties kind of way, but it's really not one of the best movies of the era.

It's feelgood though. Watch it if you ever need a bit of that.

 rated 3/5: not bad
