By the numbers actioner is well-directed but has a pretty weak script with too much emphasis on supposedly funny banter between Stallone and his mismatched cop partner that at times brings to mind unfortunate memories of Tango and Cash. When the characters are fighting or shooting the movie is fine. The rest of the time, not so much. I would wait for this one to come to Redbox.

what was Stallone thinking? he has a lot of followers including me. I grew up with Stallone. No matter how much hgh you use, you should still not wear skinny jeans at 65. He had Christian Slater in the movie..he had the korean co star..huh?..lets talk about what was good. I was gonna see it whether it was bad or not. Love Stallone. The bad guy was excellent. The daughter excellent. hmmm, i think thats where it ends. I was looking for like a "Get Carter" kinda movie. Nope, nope, nope...make another movie like that and you will be straight to dvd like Jean Claude, Steven Segal

My dad and I enjoyed the movie. We have both always been a big fan of Sly Stallone and like most of the movies he is in. Even though he is getting up there in age he still has it.

Stallone is a contract killer with a kill-or-be killed code of ethics. He's often assisted by his daughter. Get this: she's a tattoo artist he had with a "hooker-junkie" who died a long time ago; he supported her and she even got through 1-yr of medical school before settling down to her true passion, tattooing. Anyway, he's helping out a DC cop who goes to Louisiana looking for a criminal. The rest is full of shootings, stabbings, explosions, torture, and many dead bodies.

I went into this movie wanting a rock solid action film. Another Demolition Man would have been excellent. What I was given was a dumb downed version of the Expendables. Same quality of acting, not as many fan favorites. The story was basic like most action films, and sadly super predictable like most action films. There is nothing new here. Jason Mamoa was actually a very good villian but was used so poorly that he seems like a secondary character instead of the person you want Sly to get. Some of the dialogue is very witty and entertaining. Overall this movie is a buy some popcorn, turn off all reason and then try to never think about what you saw or you will hate it. But I would say this movie is worth watching if you are a fan of Sly, or stuff blowing up.
