4 out of 10 Mayhem fueled fun
Daniel from Dublin, 20 Dec 2010
Don't think about it too much just enjoy it for what it is, violent, mayhem fueled fun. Contrary to many critics' beliefs, there was never any intention by the filmmakers for it to win awards, it was made with one purpose in mind, to entertain. And that it most certainly does. The final shootout with literally everything being blown up is really quite a spectacle. While there is only one scene with Sly, Arnie and Bruce, it is a moment of unashamed delight; I can't imagine there was one person in the cinema not smiling.

2 out of 10 Not very good
Nicola from Leitrim, 07 Feb 2011
I was disappointed with this film, dont get me wrong i knew it wasnt going to win any oscars but i thought it would be a good action/beat them up kinda film, but it wasnt, dialogue and action was very poor and its so hard to look at sly stallone, he looks awful, not that he looked very good at any time! The only good thing about the film was the gag reel at the end!!! My husband was sorry he missed it in the cinema when it was released but when he saw it last night, he was glad he didnt waste his time

3.5 out of 10 Priceless
Lisa from Limerick, 15 Aug 2011
80's action heros all come together. Stallone's face is werid, he now looks like his monther lol. That aside there was some good action, funny one liners and huge body count. If you don't want to think too much here is the movie for you. Dolf Lungren was a screem, his role was too small. A few UFC and WWE stars in this too. Bruce Willis and Arnie's scene was about 2 mins long, I don't even see why Arnie was in it to be honest.

2.5 out of 10 Average
john francis from Dublin, 24 Feb 2011
I have to say i did expect this movie to be better. dont get me wrong it's full of all the fighting action you would ecpect with a cast like this, but it lacks something. it does not have the same edge as the classic action movies that stallone, willis, rourke have acted in. worth a watch, but dont expect to be blown away.

1.5 out of 10 Didn't do it for me
Martina from Tipperary, 27 Jan 2011
Just could not get into this at all, fell asleep halfway and didn't bother watching the end again. The only good scene is the Bruce, Arnie and Sly scene, but it dosen't last long. If you are action mad, rent it for that alone. My son thought it was brill.

What's it about....
Barney Ross (Stallone) 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. The team behind him is made up of Lee Christmas (Statham), former SAS and a savant with anything that has a blade; Yin Yang (Li), a master at close-quarter combat; Hale Caesar (Terry Crews), who has known Barney for ten years and is a long-barrel weapons specialist; Toll Road (Randy Couture),...
