Once you've seen the movie, you'll see that my first post really sums things up pretty well

That and most people enjoy a balls out action movie. It's a good escape from the hum drum of reality. Having Sly and his supporting cast was just an added bonus.

Exactly. If it's not your cup o tea, that's cool. But for me and most of my friends, a return to that kind of action packed movie was perfect!

Its good to escape every now and then. Most of the guys are my age so I got a kick out of them trying to do the action scenes.

This was exactly why I loved it, great fights, stuff blowing up and a semi-automatic shot gun!

How is any of that bad?

Horrible script. Only plot was to go after a girl who chose to stay behind that he met for a total of 30 mins. Stalone has more plastic surgery than Hedi Montag. His face is bordering comic status. Are his eybrows even real anymore? I enjoyed the action movies of the 80's and early 90's. Hell, the first movie my family ever rented on VHS was "First Blood" the original Rambo. It just seemed to me that there was more story and for sure more realistic action, by that I mean actual stuntwork not Computer Generated. If they were going for more of an Old School action flick, why was there so much CG blood spray every time someone got hit or shot. Man, I thought I was watching another "300" or "Sin City" flick. I like Jason Stathom's Transporter movies ( First was the best ) but this was not his best work. Jett Li looked like a total whimp. Got his ass kicked each time. This was a typical Stalone movie. Not That Great! IMOHO............
