Ok, so you have to go into this movie knowing what it really is. It is a big, old, cheesy, throwback to what I grew up on, action movie. The dialogue is silly in places and it's rather predictable. BUT, I enjoyed the heck out of it. The theater was packed on a Sunday afternoon and we all laughed at the right places. I recommend going to see it, just keep in mind that it is what it is and it's not trying to be anything other than a fun movie.

I agree 100%: it's nothing but a good-old-fashioned shoot 'em up. But it's one heck of a good-old-fashioned shoot 'em up!

Wen to see this Saturday afternoon with some friends & we absolutely loved it. Awesome fight scenes, great action & hilarious interaction between the characters.

My 2 favorite bits: Jet Li explaining to Sly why he needs a bigger cut & Terry Crewes w/ his gf! :laugh:

Jet Li was my favorite character, he just kept cracking me up. I don't want to start reciting some of his lines here because I don't want to ruin it for anyone else but he killed me.

No Joke! It made my top 10 just because of what it was and how well they done it. It was good to see a good old shootem up with no stupid sneeky twist. i like a good twist sometimes but nowadays it seems like every movie has one. This made me feel like I felt the first time I saw Rambo.

Awesome movie!!!!!

AGREED!! It was a great action flick ... some of the dialog was a bit cheesy ... but words just fill time until the next explosion. :laugh:

Awesome reviews! I can't wait to see it! My buddy made me promise to wait to see it until we got back from Florida so we could watch it together, since we grew up watching the 80's action flicks together!

I went with a couple of friends this Saturday to watch this movie and we loved it!!!! Where still talking about it :)

I think Jason Statham was my favorite he has the best accent ever!

I think there will be a sequel were the Governator and Bruce Willis will play bigger roles :cool:

I think Sly sat down to write this and just decided to put everything he likes in movies into this movie. Guns, blood, knives, bad guys, good guys, girls, explosions, fights, muscles, death, and redemption. :laugh:

I can't wait for this movie to come out on DVD. It's the sort of thing I'd gladly turn on in the background 24/7.

Definately. Sly has confirmed he has plans and rumours are that Van Damme and The Rock are being lined up for the sequel!

did anyone else notice The Nogueira Brothers were in the movie. Had to do a double take but its them.

Yeah, that was cool. I'd completely forgotten they were in it until I watched it!

Yeah, I was pretty bummed that they didn't have larger roles. I mean they were just the "trained gorillas" & they didn't even get to be in on any of the fight scenes!

Saw it tonight, it was awesome. I love the part when Arnold is walking away and Bruce Willis said, "What's his problem?" to which Stallone replied, "He wants to be President." :laugh:
