The first movie that I watched in fasting month. Everything fine but not at all. It's about my tummy not the movie. Also happens to my camera. I can't take a picture of the poster and the ticket as usual. My mood turned bad.
Watch the trailer here.
Barney Ross is a man with nothing to lose. Fearless and void of emotion, he is the leader, the sage and the strategist of this tight-knit band of men who live on the fringe. His only attachment is to his pickup truck, his seaplane and his team of loyal modern-day warriors. His is a true cynic who describes what he does as “removing those hard to get at stains.” The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas, former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang, a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar, who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road, a skilled demolitions expert and considered the intellect of the group; and Gunnar Jensen, a combat veteran and an expert in precision sniping who struggles with his own demons.
When the mysterious Church offers Barney a job no one else would take, Barney and his team embark on what appears to be a routine mission: overthrow General Gaza, the murderous dictator of the small island country of Vilena and end the years of death and destruction inflicted on its people. On a reconnaissance mission to Vilena, Barney and Christmas meet their contact Sandra , a local freedom-fighter with a dark secret. They also come to learn who their true enemy is: rogue ex-CIA operative James Monroe and his henchman Paine. When things go terribly wrong, Barney and Christmas are forced to leave Sandra behind, essentially giving her a death sentence. Haunted by this failure, Barney convinces the team to return to Vilena to rescue the hostage and finish the job he started. And to perhaps save a soul: his own. (source)
What a long synopsis :P But you don't have to think to much when watch it. It is kind of have-fun movie with a simple plot and predictable scene. I was bored and kinda sleepy in the opening. It is so guys movie. Bomb, weapon, knife, women, hot guys, and anything.
Stallone, who looks like Robert Downey Jr. for me, was dominate the whole story. Of course, he is the director, writer and the main character. But I don't really like him, in personal opinion. I don't like the way he speaks. Anyway, I haven't watch his movie before and not his fans. It's reasonable, right?
By the way, Statham was so hot. He got a special slot here. But it forced. Same as what Li got. CMIIW, but Statham and Li are the main characters beside Stallone, but they didn't get much attention for their characters.
Well, well, just forget it and also the plot. Enjoy the action and war scenes. Just saying, I don't know a knife can so sharp as there.
Nothing special except the awesome cast and brutal fight scene.
