Excerpt: In 1988, video game developer Data East released Bad Dudes . In it, two jean wearing combatants, Blade & Striker, purge sewers, city streets, and forests bare fisted to rescue America’s Commander in Chief from a rogue band of ninjas. Bad Dudes is therefore more credible than Olympus Has Fallen .
Conclusion: A grippingly brutal first act and strong cast can’t stop this turning into a Steven Seagal film well before the end. And the on-screen clock, pointlessly providing the time before every single scene, may drive you mad.
