It’s as if Stallone was tired of Takashi Miike taking the gore crown away from the Americans
and stepped up to take it back. And he does.
– from a reviewer on Ain’t It Cool News
It was a 200% all-male-testosterone-filled-gratuitous-brutal violence splattered on screen for about 2 hours. I loved it! Whew, I really needed to get that movie out of my system… the world is safe again. I’m ready to watch a more quiet, gentler movie now.
