Goofs

At one point, near the beginning of the movie, there is a very short outside view of a building. The movie labels it as the "Texas Police Department", but pausing the movie or looking closely you can see that above the the door, to the right of the garage exit, it says "L A P D" in big, white lettering. It looks like the scene was taken from another movie, "Blue Streak", with Martin Lawrence. See more »

A huge disappointment
21 February 2010 | by sveknuSee all my reviews

I really liked the first of the new Walking Tall movies starring The Rock. That meant I had some expectations for this one, even though a guy I had never heard of before, Kevin Sorbo, had taken over the lead. I was very disappointed. I don't think it was Sorbo's fault, really. The problem was a total lack of action. The little action it had, wasn't anywhere near good. The movie was simply BOOOOOOORING, moreso than 95 % of the other action movies out there. I just don't get how they managed to destroy such a promising and entertaining franchise like this. I have absolutely no rush in watching the third movie after this kind of crap.
