Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a movie with a good basic plot and effects, but with second-rate acting and execution.

In this film, Nick Fury (David Hasselhoff) is recalled after a five-year retirement from S.H.I.E.L.D. to face the threat of Von Strickler. This time, it is Baron Von Strucker's daughter, Andrea aka Viper (Sandra Hess), who is threatening to release a deadly virus that would kill millions of people in Manhattan. Fury and his team are assigned the task of stopping her.

While the visuals are great, particularly of the S.H.I.E.L.D. aircraft, the acting is pathetic. The chemistry between Fury and his love interest Val Allegro de Fontaine (Lisa Rinna) is non-existent. The tension between Fury and his irratating boss is a farce. The plot itself is fairly tense, with some interesting twists but Hasselhoff doesn't come close to a realistic portrayal of the Marvel comic book hero. Don't waste your time on this one unless you're a die-hard fan of the character.
