David Michael Bautista, Jr. (born January 18, 1969), a previous American skilled wrestler, bodybuilder and actor greatest and famous for his time in WWE and became a six-time world champion, winning the World Heavyweight Championship four times, and the WWE Championship two times. He became the longest-reigning World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history. In addition to these championships, Batista has won the World Tag Team Championship three times (twice with Ric Flair and once with John Cena) and the WWE Tag Team Championship once (with Rey Mysterio). Batista was also the winner of the 2005 Royal Rumble match. After trying out at World Championship Wrestling's Power Plant, Batista signed a contract with the WWF in 2000 and was sent to its developmental territory, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), where he won the OVW Heavyweight Championship. His is featured in the latest movie titled House of the Rising Sun (2011).
House of the Rising Sun is a film with a personality crisis. In some instances it needs to be a current noir. In others, it wants to be a police procedural. It has all the elements of a good movie, but it ends up being a type mash-up without a story. The film stars Dave Bautista (who wrestles for Vince McMahon's WWE as Batista) in this movie as Ray is a twisted ex-cop who turned ex-con and runs security for the House of the Rising Sun, a nightclub that doubles as an underground casino and brothel.
When some armed robbers seize the casino for $300,000 and kill the owner's son, Ray is framed up and winds up on the run, both from the mobsters who run the House and from his former colleagues in the police department. As Ray finding his means closer to the truth, he found the evidence against him support up and his allies turning up against him. Faced with heading back to prison for life, Ray fights his way to the top of the scheme in an attempt to clear his name with no one on his side except his ex-girlfriend, Jenny (Amy Smart).
The film is directed and co-written by Brian A. Miller, is shot well for a low-budget production, and the pacing feels just right. Unfortunately, there's just not enough story to go around.
