What a damn shame this well made movie has bombed in the states. it's performance seems to be sluggish in other territories
across the world as well. Stallone pulled all the stops out with this one and it shows. However, a lot of the blame rests with him.
The whole fanbase rose up as one more or less against the 12A/PG13 rating, but still, He and Avi Lerner would not listen. They
tried this crap with EXP2 when Chuck Norris was making kid friendly noises but thankfully, ignored him. The point is, these movies

era of Joel Silver, Walter Hill and… Read more

This is the second time that I have received an edition of a book that is not the one advertised. I understand that all ISBN

Can't say I agree with most of the negative reviews here. In some regards I prefer'ed the story to 'I Am Pilgrim', which was
similar in style to early Demille. Ok most people found the humour overpowering the narrative, but much of it was in Corey's
thoughts rather than dialogue. It was great to see Paul Brenner of 'The General's Daughter' and 'Up Country' fame make an
appearance here. I seem to remember Brenner's humour being very similar to Corey's in 'up Country'. But here he was toned
down to give Corey centre stage. A little more sexual frisson between Brenner and Kate wouldn't have gone amiss either.
I think this is Demille's best yarn since 'Night Fall' and I… Read more
