When I heard about this movie, I was very intrigued that Walter Hill was attached to Direct, and Stallone was to be the star, two people I thought I could shoot a good action movie. After Stallone proved he still had what it took to make an action movie with Expendables and Expendables 2, I thought that this movie might offer something new to the somewhat obsolete genre in which the movie ” Action has become.
The movie Stallone played a hitman named Jimmy Bobo, who gets a simple job that gets sour and his partner is killed. Bobo survives an assassination attempt on him and begins to track down the man who killed his partner. He ends up stuck with a Korean cop named Taylor Kwon investigating the murder that Jimmy and his partner had committed earlier. The two men track the dirty track for their own reasons, but one of them wants to stay above the law, and the other does not care about the law.
This quickly turns into a buddy movie, the two men trying to bounce with each other with spiritual comments and jibes towards each other, but for me there was not much chemistry between the two And it was a bit embarrassing. Most of these connections between the two take place while they are driving from one place to another, and he slightly pushed on me as the film went on, but I think mediocre action limited his success .
Stallone played the usual type of character you would expect of him, he is not the best actor in the world by any means, but playing the silent assassin, he always seems to do well, mainly because he did Not to act much. He looks cold and calculated and fits well with the character. But let’s be honest, you do not look at a Stallone movie to act, it’s all about the action, and in that department, Stallone still has it, and grants us in loads of buckets. I found the action very elegant, and although it was rather violent and graphic sometimes, as the special effects seem to lean towards the last few years, it was fun and fun to watch, Stallone wins with ease and Still seems enjoying throwing punches and guns. The highlight of the film must be the battle of the ax at the end of the film with Jason Momoa.
Sung Kang plays Taylor Kwon, whom you may know of his career in fast and furious franchising. He’s a decent actor, I like his casual style, and I think he can hold his, but for some reason I did not think he’s coping like a cop. It does not seem to have the right attitude for a policeman, but it does not spoil the film. He leaves most of the action for Stallone and instead takes the balls. But in action, he participates. I think I’d like to see it with a little more action because I think he could hold his own.
