I entered into this film expecting a rip off of the ”Expendables” or just another post politics poor Arnie film, instead I got a decent popcorn movie with half a brain.
This is by far Arnie’s best movie since he came out of retirement, the writing is believable along with Arnie’s role, you are kept guessing til the end and actually give a dam about the conclusion.
Along with the above you also have a great cast surrounding the big man which includes, Sam Worthington, (Lost’s) Josh Holloway, Terrence Howard and the intimidating Joe Manganiello.
The brains behind the film are the same people who made ”End of Watch & ”Training Day” which are both classics, I am not saying this film is a masterpiece but it certainly bypassed my expectations.
