Interrogation (2016)


After the FBI receives a threat that endangers the entire city, an interrogator and an I.T. specialist are plunged into a series of mind games with a criminal mastermind, desperately racing against time to uncover the villain's true agenda as they fight to protect thousands of lives.

REVIEW: The Direct-to-Video action flicks put out every few months by WWE Studios are always a huge guilty pleasure with me. Sure, they're pretty generic and filled with bad acting, and when all is said and done and the end credits are rolling they're pretty forgettable and interchangeable with one another, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that, during the runtime of them while you're actually watching them, they're fun as all hell. The Marine sequels are a pretty big favorite of mine in this area.

Interrogation, however, is sadly not one of them. 


The music is kind of fun and sets the mood of each scene perfectly, but the acting is pretty bad here, even by the very low standards set in these types of movies, which wasn't helped by the dreadful dialog that half the time made no sense. In addition, it plays everything too seriously and way too straight for it's own good, the cheese that does pop up occasionally is more groan-worthy than usual (especially that weird 'memory library' talent or whatever that Adam Copeland's character has), and the action scenes are nowhere near as fun as they usually are in these movies, again mainly due to the overly-serious nature of this one, which pretty much removes the majority of the fun factor.

I wouldn't say this is the worst of the WWE Studios DtV movies (Leprechaun: Origins takes that spot), but I would say it's pretty close to the bottom of the barrel, and even if you're like me and a fan of these types of movies, you wouldn't exactly be doing yourself a disservice if you decided to just skip this one.
