Audience Reviews for Going Berserk

Dull and formulaic, Going Berserk is an underwhelming comedy that's poorly made. The story follows a limo driver that is brain washed by a religious cult to become an assassin, but things don't go exactly as planned. The cast features some impressive comedic talent, such as John Candy, Eugene Levy, and Ernie Hudson, but they're poorly used. The story is also particularly bad; it just doesn't go anywhere and nothing pays off. Going Berserk is a pointless and uninspired film that only delivers occasional laughs.

Not that great of a movie, especially for John Candy.
