I expected fantastic choreography, from high flying strikes, as well as fast paced combats...

SAVAGE DOG is a hugely entertaining action B-movie from the reliably great British action star Scott Adkins.

There are also some slow patches that will on occasion have the viewer telling the movie to simply get on with it.

It was actually entertaining enough for what it turned out to be, just don't get your expectations up too high.

Clearly a waste of time...

The movie starts out decent, and based off the opening fight I'm expecting entertaining fight choreography to continue throughout the film.

Gore effects are utilised by CGI and look decent throughout, while the supporting cast is packed with engaging familiar faces: the hulking Marko Zaror as the bad guy, Keith David as the narrator, Cung Le as a soldier, Juju Chan as the romantic interest, Matthew Marsden as a British agent.

The man is dull and lifeless much like Van Damme and Lungren were when they first started out in the industry.

Only thing enjoyable was the final fight scene.

In fact, it's pretty brutal, exciting, and bloody at times; whoever provided the fake blood for this movie probably comfortably retired when filming was completed.

but the movie itself, is entertaining...

I think she is actually the daughter of Steiner, I think, but that also went nowhere.

The story was straight forward, albeit quite predictable and generic.
