He's good at what he does. He comes back to haunt you.
The Vigilante (Paul Sloan) is an Internet famous crime fighter. We get flashbacks of his origin through narration by Moreau (Michael Madsen), his former boss before Vigilante went rogue. He has a side kick, a photographer and is aided by others through some kind of network. He is currently doing battle against the proverbial Armenians as well as his former boss and Michael Jai White.
The film has a lot of formula action and cliché lines. It appears to spoof action films while trying to be one on its own. Red (Jessica Uberuaga) never appears dressed like she looks on the DVD cover. Grindhouse style entertainment. Seems like they want this to be a series.
Guide: F-word, nudity, at least three hot Asian chicks.
Dime-a-dozen b- action movie (b- as in b-minus) .
Most actors feel like they are from cheap TV-shows. The bad guy must be telenovela actor. The script feels like it was written with mad- lips using action movie clichés. Movie is a messy mix-up of elements stolen form well-known action movie. Mostly from Deadpool, like lead actor narrating the story and fourth-wall breaks. Plot of all over the place and bad director makes this movie too both way too stupid for adults to watch sober and too hard to follow stoned or drunk. So I guess the target audience are male tween.
None of the characters are neither believable, interesting or funny.
Movie is not funny enough to be bad-funny movie. While this is not totally bad movie, it's not any way good either. Current rating of 5 is too high, this does not deserve rating above low 4.
You can't really "watch" this movie without at same time surfing on the internet looking for something interesting to pass the time.

A doze-off-and-watch action flick.
I look at the blurb before the cast and writer and director but it didn't take more than a few minutes into this movie to suspect it's a writer/director effort! He really should have stuck to cooking! It comes with a second writer who also stars but that's no great shakes of a recommendation.
It's not a dire action movie, but it does come with the usual action flick clichés, improbabilities (impossibilities!), set pieces, contrivances and, yes, stupidities (when you've got the guy where you want him, yeah, put the gun away and go hand-to-hand! Doh! Moron! (er, that's the writer(s)!)! The bad guys speak English for most of the movie but 2/3rds of the way through they start speaking in their native language and we're treated to subtitles. Oh dear...
Oh yes, the hip hop/rap music is crap, too!
But the movie mainly falls down in the explanation department. It could be me, but trying to follow who's who and who's done what to whom and why, got off to a bad start and didn't really get any easier. However, if you just go with the flow you can enjoy an action flick (with just a twinge of gratuitous torture) for what it is.
The performances are nothing to write home about but Michael Madsen does well (although he doesn't actually do much) but must have been looking for work.
It's all sort of OK, but not brilliant and there's the ever-present feeling that it should and could have been better.
If you've nothing else to do on a weekday night, give it a whirl, but have a few beers with it, accept it for what it is and wonder why you're watching this when you could be watching a 7* movie.
