real and i mean REAL SCREEN PRESENCE,camera eats him
25 July 2008 | by countryboy783See all my reviews

faking it with the chess guy and Wally Downes as his mentor was compulsive viewing. wally was terrific with his soccer choreography in the mean machine in2000 and the way he guided this guy Max showed his empathy for such a difficult project. when he quits as a soccer coach we want him back on screen.....BIG OR S MALL the small cameo in MM hopefully will interest him enough to go again in the eagerly awaited sequel Mean Machine 2.....The BREAKOUT!!! news is Vinnie Jones has the script close to completion and moves into pre-production in the fall. most of WJD's time was taken up with the soccer scenes in the original but an expanded dialogue is being worked on and his relationship with Meehan (vinnie jones) will be the cornerstone of the project. word is this could be Vinnies directorial debut!
