I was expecting sooo much more from the legendary Stallone, instead we get something that is lacking on what it was trying to achieve. The last Rambo is a shining example of Stallone at his best, even the last Rocky! But this, this is just ... i just can't describe it properly. I love all the film's of the 80's in homage to the era that made the action movie, the now cheesy and clichéd. They entertained. I found myself looking at the clock on my phone throughout. It dragged. Bad script along with Stallone's plastic features; again why Stallone, WHY!!!
Statham as always entertained me, i just love watching the guy. This is the first time i found myself smudging the great name of Stallone. Maybe it's age, i don't know.
With recent revamps of old faves such as Predator, The A-Team, which were both fantastic in my opinion. Then you have this.. The only good thing's about this movie was the action which was top notch. And then the cast, and let's face it; Stallone, was he doing a Costner?
