The Stranger is a thriller movie from 2010 starring Steve Austin, Erica Cerra, Adam Beach, and Ron Lea. The focus of the movie is on a man named The Stranger, played by Austin, who suddenly appears in a small town with no memory of who he is or where he came from. With tattoos of a barcode and the number 109 on the back of his head, The Stranger quickly becomes a target for both the authorities and a dangerous group of people who seem to be after him.

The movie starts off with The Stranger waking up in a barren landscape with no memory of anything that happened before that moment. He stumbles into a small town where he is met with hostility and suspicion from the locals. Despite being warned to leave town by the sheriff (Lea), The Stranger decides to stay and try to uncover the truth about his identity.

As The Stranger begins to investigate his past, he discovers that he has some highly specialized skills such as martial arts, hacking and extreme fighting abilities. With several people now after him, The Stranger uses his skills to evade capture and uncover the truth.

One of the people who help The Stranger along the way is a woman named Grace (Cerra). Grace is the town’s doctor who aids The Stranger when he gets hurt. She is intrigued by The Stranger and ends up helping him after he saves her from an attack by a group of thugs. She turns out to be the only person in the town who is willing to help him fight against the danger he is in.

One of the most interesting aspects of the movie is the character of The Stranger himself. He is a man with no memory or sense of himself except for the highly specialized skills he has. At times he appears to be almost Superhuman, and the audience gets the sense that there is much more to him than meets the eye. However, he also struggles to interact with people, and some of his interactions with others are awkward and confusing, adding to the intrigue of the plot.

In addition to The Stranger and Grace, there are several other well-developed characters in the movie. Adam Beach plays the role of Mason, a local bartender who befriends The Stranger and helps him navigate the dangerous world he has found himself in. Lea’s character, Sheriff Lawson, serves as a formidable antagonist, trying to track The Stranger down even as his own motives are called into question.

Overall, the plot of The Stranger is engaging and keeps the audience on edge. The action sequences are well-choreographed and full of intense energy. The film also addresses larger questions about identity and the nature of being human, making it more than just a standard action movie.

Some viewers might find the plot of the movie to be somewhat predictable. It is not difficult to guess what secrets about The Stranger’s identity will be revealed by the end of the movie. However, the performances by the cast, particularly Austin and Cerra, are strong enough to make the journey to the inevitable conclusion worthwhile.

In conclusion, The Stranger is a gripping thriller that will keep audiences glued to their seats until the very end. With its themes of identity and action-packed scenes, it is worth a watch for fans of the genre.

The Stranger is a 2010 action movie. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.7.
