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

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.

I'm going to start off this review by saying that i'll probably be little harsh towards this movie and that is because I had average to high hopes for it and i was very let down. The story in this movie didn't bother me because I could tell from the trailer that the story was just there to call it a movie and have some consistency so that wasn’t my gripe with the movie the thing that I Hated about this movie was the characters they were as wooden as a plan and boring and bland. The other thing I didn’t like was the style of the movie and the whole look at first I was cool with it then they started to overdue it and it just got really messy. Even though I was not the biggest fan of this movie I am a firm believer in every movie having a silver lining so with that being said I did like the axe scene between stallone and mamoa that was probably the only liked in this whole movie. Please go see something better fo the sake of god movies! i give bullet to the head a 4.5/10
