Bending The Rules is a newer movie by WWE Studios and it features former pro wrestler Edge in the lead role. He’s joined by funny man Jamie Kennedy. When I first saw the previews for this movie I was interested, mostly because I’m a fan of Edge, but also because it looked like it might be good.
The movie starts off fast, jumping right into the story. This causes two problems. One, you feel as if you have to catch up fast and it’s hard to do when you only have so much to go off of, and two, there’s almost no time devoted to character development.
While you do learn who the characters are throughout the movie, little time is given to them, if that makes any sense.
Aside from that, the acting done by Adam “Edge” Copeland is decent and fits this type of movie. He’s pretty funny and makes the role work, but does little else with it. Jamie Kennedy is also funny in the movie, but the role doesn’t seem to be for him. While he’s a talented enough comedic actor, this role wasn’t really his strong suit.
The movie has some action and some comedy in it, but overall it felt to be lacking a little of everything. Some things in the movie could have been left out while other more important things could have been brought in.
All in all, I wasn’t too upset that I sat through it, but I wouldn’t again.
I give this movie 5 of 10 stars.
