Ok, movie but nothing to get excited about. Stallone is the same old Stallone. Granted, you know what your getting when you go to one of his movies. This one is kinda dull, buddy movie jokes fall flat, unnecessary scenes and banter. Not enough Sarah Shahi. I was hoping she would've had a bigger roll, but not to be when Sly wants as much screen time as he can get.
This movie was fine for blow em up action but the working parts (acting by some) needs some work and doesn't pull it over the top for me

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.

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.

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.
