Goofs

Urban legend presented as fact: Breslin deduces which hemisphere they're in based on which direction the drains flow. This effect, known as Coriolis force, is quoted by Breslin as causing moving objects on the surface of the Earth to be deflected in a counter-clockwise rotation in the Northern Hemisphere and in a clockwise rotation in the Southern Hemisphere. It is not effective on water drainage, so it cannot be used to scientifically and surely determine in which hemisphere one is. 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.
