Well, this movie should have been avoided.
How does an "action" movie end up boring and weak ?? yes, people get stabbed and shot and killed. Good guys and bad guys alike ... and the only thought I had was, "so what?"
I didn't care enough to like or hate any of the characters. Not even if they reversed it, and we wanted to cheer for the villains, as they are all boring too.
The main actor is Michael Jai White, and this guy is stiff. His fight sequences were ok, and that was about it.
He would be better suited to being a supporting actor, maybe in TV movies.
Unless it was the director that purposely dragged the script, and had all the actors stall between each spoken line?
Steve Austin is hardly in this, and is not enough of a reason to view this.
Maybe the only reason he had a crappy bit part was to put his face on the DVD cover to sell more copies?
If they were honest, they would have only put a small pic of him on the back cover so you would know how insignificant his role was.

Agree with llenar52 that it appeared to be a remake of other films about macho ex-war heroes, in their quest to avenge and protect their loved ones found themselves stepped into conspiracies ran by dangerous men. However, give credit to the film makers breaking the Hollywood mode in choosing the very good African American action actor Michael Jai White as the protagonist and white actors like Steve Austin as the antagonists. Too bad the script was not written better and with higher production values.

Another budget action movie with the same old storyline from previous movies, different actors. It was ok.

You could be opening up a whole new hornets' nest.
-0Hornets die. And I don't run from fights.
You're not in the war anymore.
-That's a matter of opinion.
Jimmy, listen, you have to be smart about this.
-Hey, man, whoever did this, if it's a war they want, I'll bring it to their doorstep.
===
Lieutenant, good to see you again.
-Ray. Wish I could say that Same.
I'm gonna take that as a compliment.
===
Hell, for years, I fought with pride for this goddamn country.
-We all did.
Yeah, we all did. And as soon as you return from combat, You quickly realize there's no appreciation for vets. No work, no housin'... shxt. Cuttin' back on our health and pensions. They treat prisoners better than they treat us.
