The violence was a given--nothing in the way of surprises here. But the language was unnecessary and so was the gratuitous nudity. The story was entirely too weak to even say the language and nudity could be overlooked. IMHO, it was thrown in to artificially add SOMEthing to the movie. It failed. Pass on the movie.

I didn't have high expectations for this movie. But against my better judgement, I saw it anyway. It was awful. Worse than I imagined.
The plot was ... I don't even know what it was supposed to be about. It was a bunch half-cocked killing scenes strung together for 91 LONG minutes. Watching someone play a violent video game would be more entertaining.
The action was dumb and gory, you could see the "twists" coming from a mile out, the acting was horrible (why does Stallone's face not move when he talks? You can barely understand what he's saying), and all the characters are so dislikeable, you kind of hope they all get taken out. And soon.
In a time when 3 hour movies seem to be the norm, you know there's a problem when a 90 minute movie has you begging for it to be over after 20 minutes. Don't waste your time. You'll regret it.

It just wasn't good. Though the face that he's come out against freedom and 2nd amendment have wrecked watching any of his flicks as all that comes through is the hypocrisy of having made his fortune of the guns he wants taken away from Americans while he's surrounded by bodyguards and carries his own gun.

If you wanted character developement, you picked the wrong movie. If you want story, go somewhere else. This is an action movie, pure and simple. People getting shot, things getting blown up, a good guy, a bad guy, an anti-hero, and a psychopath. The big fight you see in the trailers is the only one in the movie. Save your money and wait till it comes out on Cinemax.
