missed opportunity
O'Neal is John Henry Irons, a military weapons specialist who's just been discharged and returns home to enjoy civilian life with his family until one of his corrupt ex-compatriots (Nelson) uses his military training to deal high-tech weaponry on the streets. In order to thwart him and stop the criminal underworld from acquiring a sophisticated arsenal, Irons becomes an unlikely hero. Believe it or not, this actually had the potential to be successful, but it's done in by dumb dialogue, unconvincing special effects, and an abundance of silly Shaq in-jokes. Might have been a better idea to actually develop the story, rather than spotlighting stupid basketball references. *½
