I went into this movie knowing it was probably going to be a rugged man move like the Expendables. Usually, that sort of movie is a good movie theater man flick. I was very mistaken. The plot was extremely lacking. Stallone played a macho hit-man that has a problem with authority and seeks vengeance on his hit-man partner that was killed. There is NO character development and just back acting (except for Stallone and a couple others).
Bottom line, don't waste your money, if anything wait for Redbox but honestly, you would be wasting your money there too.

This was a passable Stalone movie, which felt a tad bit watered-down.
The script was good to very-good. However, I guess the lack of a soundtrack made the movie less dramatic.
There are a couple of good explosions, so that was nice.
If you want to take a girl to a Action-Adventure movie, this one is it!
It was moderately entertaining. For example, if it were on Netflix, I'd probably watch it again. I would not buy another movie-theater ticket to see it again, though.

I was surprised I liked it as much as I did, because he really CAN'T act! It was entertaining, and held my interest. The part suited him.

Smart, great, well written movie. Old fashion shoot 'em up with a twist. And even though Stallone is 66 he carries off the action guy so much better than Schwartzenegger or any of the other "old timers".
And Stallone can act....he can say so much with just a simple grunt or scowl.
My Chinese partner and I loved the "Asian" jokes, not PC but funny anyway.

Don't expect Hamlet here. This is just simple fun. Felt like it should have been shot in Black and White as over the top Film Noir(ish).
