Acceleration (2019) 720p English
Stars: Sean Patrick Flanery, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Liddell
You can usually tell when an actor is having a good time watching or not. Especially when they’re playing villains, which tends to bring out the hamminess in even the most restrained performers. In Acceleration, the new action film directed by Michael Merino and Daniel Zirilli, Sean Patrick Flanery clearly seems to be having a good time, an even better time than when he was starring in George Lucas’ The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on television. Playing Kane, a flamboyant crime boss who lives up to his name by using a walking stick, Flanery chews the scenery with gusto, as if auditioning for the next Quentin Tarantino movie. He’s the most enjoyable element in what otherwise proves a flimsy vehicle for its producer/star Natalie Burn.
