Stallone still has it! Working on both sides of the camera he is fantastic. Jason Stathom was ok despite being a rubbish actor and Aronld gave a very disapointing appearence by only having a couple of lines, they should not have not told people he was in the movie because it would have been a good suprise.
The action scenes are brilliant and the cast is unreal but the storyline needs some work but it is a allround good movie.
I would recomend
Don't listen to the people hating on this film , it was a cool mix of old and new and some cool action , and what action movie would be a action movie with out some bad acting!! lol and it was predictable but it was all around fun , action packed and some cool fight sceens and the best damn gun i have seen in a while !! so check it out!!
What happens when you take almost every action star who has been in at least one bad movie and put them together; you get a bad movie. Stallone directed and help write this film and it was not up to par at all. Now I am not a total hater of this film. I am sure it was interesting seeing Stallone's old skin in slow motion when he was running. But the film could of been better. The cast was fun to see. I loved seeing the newer action stars and the old ones work together. Even the cameos were great. The dialog for the most part was just as pathetic as the story. Pretty much just like the old action films you remember seeing. There were a few funny lines in the film though, so it did get a little of a laugh out of me. Now lets talk about the thing that the movie advertised; the action. Yes it had the action that was promised. All the cool fight scenes, bones breaking and gore. But some old action stars cannot move that fast so what do they do, they shake the camera. This really makes the viewer lose interest. Plus personally, I think there could of been more action. They did have a lot of serious scenes and with that dialog, it was pretty bad. Now, I don't know who was in charge of the CG, but it looked like something with a low budget. An example is a scene with Steve Austin. I would think with a hype like this, they could of made it look more real. All in all I enjoyed the film in bits and pieces. Also even thought I didn't enjoy the film all the way, just like the old action films, the movie did give off the man movie of the year. I don't know if it was Jet Li breaking someones neck or Terry Crews and his gun that kept me smiling at parts; you can see I liked it some. One thing really was on my mind when the movie ended though. I couldn't figure out who was uglier at their old age; Stallone or Rourke.
