Goofs

When the two main characters first meet, Rottmeyer refers to Breslin's alias "Porthos" as the 4th Musketeer. Porthos was in fact the 2nd Musketeer behind Athos, but before Aramis. D'Artagnan was the 4th Musketeer. See more »

Solid, Simple and Entertaining Action
13 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a simple plot movie that symbolizes everything about Silvestre and Schwarzenegger glory days. There is no thick plot or real complexities, it's a simple bad guys Vs good guys action flick. However, the movie does not disappoint, its very entertaining and full of action and hard core scenes. The acting is as expected, nothing Oscar worthy but good enough from action legends like them. The idea is simple and is easily understood. The one difference in this movie is that the chemistry between Schwarzenegger and Stallone is excellent and they deliver some humor also. The only downside that I can think about is the fact that this movie is really meant for both the stars fans and not people who are looking for real ideas or excellent cinematography. Bottom line go enjoy the movie and don't forget your popcorn.
