A cop and an assassin team up together after there partners are killed. Conan killed one of them, Christian Slater looks relieved to be on the big screen again, and Stallone takes his shirt off at least once.

The plot has something to do with a flash drive, and in the mix, Conan kidnaps Stallones daughter, and the two leads have a bit of banter, all the while advertising Bulleit Bourbon, and Blackberry phones, they are a weapon after all.

Out of all the eighties throwback movies released this side of the year (Die Hard V, The Last Stand), this was the one I was least eager to see. The trailer was horrid, and the one sheet is hilarious (Just look at Shahis airbrushed head).

Stallone hasn't really sold a film on his name alone and had success since probably The Specialist back in 1994, and it's a real shame, because even his worst films are worth watching because of him.

And this is no different, yet, it's nothing really special. It's a throwback to his post Rocky IV days, and the film delivers on the action scale in huge droves and doesn't fail to entertain, but narrative, story, and character building are virtually non-existent.

The chemistry between the two leads is nil, and this is where the film fails the most, that is the fundamental part of the film, and it resorts to them bickering, and Stallone giving an off the cuff remark.

And then the film does that stupid thing with an object, which you know will be used in the finale, the knife may as well have said 'I'm gonna stab Momoa with this' on it.

It entertained as it should, but I soon forgot it, and wouldn't be upset if I never saw it again.

Not as bad as Driven, Avenging Angelo, or Oscar, but it's not as fun as Tango and Cash, or Demolition Man, what it should be.

That is the only possible explanation for the failure of this film, which on the surface of things seemed quite promising, but quickly crashed and therefore mostly failed to deliver.

When I saw that Stallone was teaming up with Christian Slater and Jason Momoa to play in a film directed by Walter Hill, a legendary veteran of action cinema, I was really thrilled. The first 10 minutes of the film were actually pretty good - but then, things went south, past Louisiana and even the American continent, straight towards the Pole.

The main culprit here is of course the scenario - or rather the lack of it (understandable - it was eaten). Everything in this film can be anticipated, there is a complete lack of originality, dialogs are VERY lame, there is very little humour and let's not even talk about action scenes! In good action scenes the vilains (or the disposable sidekicks) make at least an effort and if possible put up a fight, offer a challenge, at least I don't know, show that they care a little about NOT dying - here, with just one exception, everybody dies immediately, the moment Stallone or Jason Momoa enter the room. That is not action, it is just boring slaughter.

The idea of pairing up a hit man and a cop on a mission of revenge was very promising, but it was comprehensively FUBAR-ed. Part of responsability lays here with Sung Kang, the guy who plays the cop. This guy CAN'T act at all and his character is a laughable obscene abomination - I can't imagine how Walter Hill could accept such a lamo p-u-s-s-y as one of the two heroes of an action film. Honestly, if you want to see a film in which a hit man and a (former) cop team up in an uneasy alliance, see "Best seller", a 1987 movie with James Woods and Brian Dennehy - that is one bad@ss crime/action film!

It is a cheesy film but then again it is full of action; well it stars Sylvester Stalone so it had to be.
The storyline is not too bad, however there is not much depth to the characters. The action scenes
make up for this, and there is plenty of it.
If there is one redeeming quality it is the witty one liners thrown in and the rapport between the two main characters.
This is not Stalones best film, but it is good to see him playing a sort of bad guy, although it's more like a good guy with attitude.
It was good to see Jason Momoa (Drogo - Game ofThrones) playing a tough bad guy.
There are some good fight scenes.
This is worth watching if there is nothing else on TV or if you are in the mood for some action.

Positive.
The opening which sets up what looks a taunt thriller.
Jason Momoa has charisma playing a rival hitman.

Negative.
Sylvester Stallone & this hurts to say but doesn't quite deliver his usual action classic here unlike his recent enjoyable Escape Plan & the exellent The Expendables.
The Ending is very poor & loses the chance at upping the ante in the action department.

Dvd.
Running Time 92 minutes, Director Walter Hill.

Review.
This movie's based on the graphic novel by Alexis Nolent of the same name but doesn't quite deliver as it should do.
Sly plays hitman Jimmy Bobo who's partner is killed by another hitman.

Bobo teams up with honest detective Taylor Kwan who's partner has also been murdered to find the mercenary responsible.

What follows are gunfights, Fistfights, The usual one liners you typical 80's action type film.

But unlike Slys recent efforts the excellent Escape Plan & superb Expendables this doesn't quite hit those mark's.

Sly had no script involvement in this film & it shows the humour seems flat lacking the usual punchy quip.

Sly kicks ass & doesn't go down the 12a action movie routes keeping it hardcore & that at least I commend him on doing.

Sung Kang lacks charisma as Taylor Kwan & the partnership with Boboo doesn't quite Gel.

There's no real standout action scenes either & the pace seems uneven in places.

Christian Slaters small role is annoying & the best kill by Bobo in the movie.

The standout star in this film for me is Jason Momna whom has screen presence & charisma whom can certainly handle the action scenes.
