this is the action and violence that i want on my tv system
Verified purchase
I like 16:9 video. I like 5.1 surroundsound. This makes 2 in a row like that. I like the action and violence. I like the shooting; there is plenty and accurate, too. I like the punching and kicking. I like the explosions. I like the story. I like that there is more than one primary triggermen.

Underrated
Verified purchase
One in the Chamber is an underrated action-thriller by director William Kaufman. Kaufman is one of a handful of DTV directors to really watch. (The others being Isaac Florentine, Roel Reine, and John Hyams.). Kaufman's action scenes
are always handled carefully, not sloppily, and with a definite, obvious respect for the days when audiences were presented with hand to hand fight scenes that were like mini martial arts demonstrations rather than quickly cut illusions of combat. Kaufman really seems to have respect for the genre. It seems that these days, with very few exceptions, the place to find a good action movie is in the DTV market and Kaufman is definitely one of the directors to watch. Of course, having Dolph Lundgren give one of his more memorable performances in recent years helps a bit too. Let's hope this film is successful enough to call for a sequel.

Cuba could do better
Verified purchase
The movie is good, a typical mob story with few twists, and the story ends well. I didn't expect any good performance from anyone except Cuba Gooding Jr. God, this is the actor who has won Academy Award and many nominations!! What happened to him? His performance in this movie is really not what he could and should do. Hope to see some of more "Jerry Maguire" and "Radio" kinds of performances out of him. Though I am no less fan of him.

Clever, well done, plenty of action & explosions

I rent from Amazon weekly. As I was scanning I saw at 2012 thriller starring Cuba Gooding, Jr & Dolph Lundrgren & figured, how bad could it be? We live in a "faster" world now. Movies longer than 2 hours stretch our attention span. We want to be enthralled. We want to try & guess what will happen next. "One In The Chamber" gave me all I wanted & more. I wasn't looking for Oscar Winning performances: I wanted to be entertained for 90 minutes. "One in the Chamber" delivers, both with humor & intrigue. If you appreciate guns, you will see some of the latest & best weapons the armed forces are using now, as well as the "fun" sequences that make these thrillers worth the low price. So? Low on cash? Bored? Kids on your nerves? Rent "One in the Chamber"! It delivers what you want & beats $10-$14 at the theatre, popcorn, & soda.

Could be better
Verified purchase
Storyline and some parts could have been better, so having two top actors starring pulled it through and did the trick. I rated this an A grade but because of so many great movies out maybe it just put this movie to one side with me. I'm sure there are plenty of other people out there that would disagree with me. Overall not to bad and is a passable movie to watch not a fantastic show and will do until something else comes along. Now go get the munchies put your feet up to rest and sit awhile and see for yourself and be the judge. Enjoy!

Lundgrin and Gooding are GREAT
Verified purchase
I love Dolph Lundgren and Cuba Gooding. Both in one movie was something I did not want to miss. I did not expect this movie to be nearly as good as it is. The story line kept you guessing and it was very entertaining. Lots of action just made it better. I am delighted to add it to my collection of action movies.

I have an issue with the type of lens and film used in movies.
Verified purchase
Not a fan of what looks like cheap at home type videography. The actors as well were OK but it seemed like I paid too much to watch this....

Only Lundgren fans will like this one.
Verified purchase
Dolph is my favorite action guy, but somehow this movie lacks the pazass of many of his other movies, for example, "An Army of One", "The Minion", or even "Jill the Ripper". Cuba Gooding Jr., as fine an actor there is, I don't believe saved this movie.from being a B- flick. I bought this before seeing it somewhere else just to add it to my collection. If you have two hours it won't be wasted, but see the ones I listed above first!
