"If you are like me and will give most DTV a chance, then this is one you should not look away from.
As we all know most DTV have crappy acting, production ect... Now Walking Tall 2 is different. The actors do a good job in their roles. Kevin Sorbo is great as a guy who beleives in GOOD. I was very impressed. HE look liked he had fun in doing this movie and was actually interested in making you beleive he was upset. All of the other actors/actresses were also good too. I must say the main bad guy was excellent. I could not wait until he got hurt. Horrible thing to say, but he deserved it.
Story is that Nick(sorbo) is doing his own thing and when he learns that his dad was in a *accident* he becomes the sherrif of his old town and thigs change for the better, You know have a man who will stand up for his people and the ones he loves. The story is simple-> good guy wants to crush bad guy. Simple yes, but boring NO.
What I liked about this movie is that they didnt use any stock footage( worst thing you could do to a movie besides voice dubbing). They did their own fights and the explosions were real. Walking Tall 2 was violent which was good because it seemed more beleivable. There was some horrible things that this bad guy did to the towns people. I was happy to see a movie that probably didnt have a big budget, but still made the production feel like they had more to work with and they did a great job. Sure there was some boring parts, but what movie does'nt have them? If your looking for a good movie with a bad guy to get his butt kicked, then Walking Tall 2 is for you."
Kevin Sorbo rules!

"A must see for Kevin Sorbo fans and a must see for folks who just like an entertaining movie. Though a little predictable, the story flowed nicely and not too much over the top violent scenes. Kevin Sorbo did a great job in the role of Nick and carried the movie very well. The supporting cast was well selected. I would recommend ordering as it's a DVD that you can watch over and over again. Nice job Kevin."
Much better than expected, Kevin Sorbo did well, good story.

"I enjoyed the first Walking tall, Starting the rock in a story of one man's quest to turn around his small hometown that had been overun with crime and drugs. This movie is based in Boone texas, and Kevin sorbo plays the son of the long time county sherrif, who county is having a bunch of trouble with recent crimes and "bad accidents" after his 30 years of relative peace on the job. Finally, after an explosion at one of the local gas sations, the sherrif uncovers something that leads him to suspect something big is going on. Unfortunatly for him, he became invovled in something bigger than him, and payed the ultimate price with his life. Well, His son (Kevin Sorbo) comes back to town to help his mom, and Do something about fixing his town. The movie takes off from there. Good action, Sorbo was a great fit for the role. Decent script, although some of the lines and acting can get cheesy, it decent for most action movies. And this does not let anybody down for action. Check it out, good follow up movie in the series, thankfully not billed as a sequel."

"I was a little dissapointed that there wasn't more action, but this was a really good movie with solid acting by everyone and a good script. I loved the bar fight scene!! Kevin Sorbo was great, as always, and AJ Buckley did a good job as the main villian. I can't wait until Walking Tall 3 comes out!"
