With a miniscule budget, an unproven director, and a cast of misfit toys, The Condemned was dead before it even hit theaters. And, as most people predicted, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was simply flat in his role as convicted felon Jack Conrad. The Condemned focused on a reality show that revolved around convicts battling to the death for the entertainment of millions. Interesting premise, awful execution. 

Austin essentially played the same character that he did in the WWE: a merciless badass who doesn't take lip from anyone. That may work inside of a cage or while beating your opponent with a ladder, but a movie requires more than that. Apparently, the Texas Rattlesnake doesn't agree with that, and played this role with all of the subtlety of a drive-by.
