I saw it yesterday...and I liked it! But, audiences have clearly rejected the "macho-invicible-80's-toughguy" formula
. This, Last Stand, and Parker all flopped.
But IMO, this movie shouldn't be lumped in with Last Stand. Last Stand had too much unintended comedy. This movie isn't about comedy
...its about political corruption, hitmen, and bullets
I'm little biased because I vacationed in New Orleans in July and was given the royal treatment and had a good time in the French Quarter and out in the swamps with the gators
So it was fun recognizing all the areas the filming took place. I swear I rode by Stallone's swamp house on the tour boat
! This wasn't a prop NO, they filmed in the real city!
The guy that plays the big boss? He did good job of sounding evil and villainous
What I'm wondering is, how did they get the city of NO to agree to host a movie filming that portrays it in a fictionalized bad light
?! They needed the revenue I guess?! Its a TRUE portrayal because of the real life political corruption on the city, buy still
! Do your filming here, but rename the city or don't name it
! Everybody from cops to politicians to lawyers are dirty here, LOL!
Its a shoot-em-up, but its one of the better ones. Highly recommend this over the others.
