To be honest, the vast majority of the changes made here are quite small, but it's definitely a case of the whole being greater than the sum of it's parts. A lot of the new dialogue is not only funnier than what was in the theatrical version, but much of it also serves to make the characters more interesting and well-rounded; while I'm not going to claim they're now deep, thought-provoking and complex people (after all, this is still an action movie), they do seem more human and less like the cardboard cut-outs they were before. Sly has also tinkered with the editing in some of the action scenes, and while it may not be easy to spot what exactly is different, the sequences as a whole flow more easily and seem a bit more lucid.
The major changes involve the new opening credits sequence and the new soundtrack applied to the big finale, and how you feel about these differences will probably be down to personal taste more than anything. While I liked the new footage used during the opening credits, I felt the choice of music was out of place and was trying to make the scene far too downbeat. Conversely, I thought the use of Shinedown's "Diamond Eyes" over the final firefight was a big improvement - it gave the scene a lot more energy and to me the rock soundtrack made it feel far more oldschool (which was surely what the entire movie was trying to be, right?).Read more ›
The story is in principle about a group of mercenaries, many of them a little bit aged, who are hired by the CIA to eliminate the military dictator ruling a little island in the Caribbean - but the plot is really really NOT important, and so it will not be discussed further.
The team of mercenaries is small but lethal (of course!). Its leader Barney Ross is (of course!) played by Stallone himself, who also wrote the scenario and directed the film. Ross is the oldest member of the team; he is also a man of few words, without much personal life, very calm and slightly sad. His great pride is to be the fastest man to draw and shoot the gun - "Only light is faster"...
The second in command, Lee Christmas, is played by Jason Statham, who gives an IMPRESSIVE performance!! Christmas is much younger than his commander (and best friend), much more extraverted and with a gorgeous, although unfaithful girlfriend played by Charisma Carpenter. He is an excellent marksman and an accomplished martial arts expert, but his personal specialty is knife fight and especially knife throwing. In homage to the "Magnificent seven" old western classic, Ross and Christmas have at every possible occasion a friendly speed competition between knife and revolver...
The third most important member of the team is Gunner Jensen, a gigantic sociopathic and borderline insane sniper played with great brio by Dolph Lundgren - who gives in this movie his (in my modest opinion) best screen performance ever.Read more ›
Action heroes these days are considered people like Orlando Bloom, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. Fine for the girls, but just not acceptable for lovers of classic action films. Not at all, I'm afraid. So for the last 10-15 years it's been a case of us guys going to see whatever goop our partner has picked out of the local cinema listings and just enduring it without any return for ourselves, without that light at the end of a tunnel such as the thought that "it's okay, because the new Arnie film comes out next week and watching this with her means I'll get to go see that without any complaints"... Nothing.
Proof can even be seen in the very few action movies we've actually seen, they manage to work the current action-hero-less situation we've been in in recent years. Remember Bruce Willis in Die Hard 4.0 ("If there was somebody else then believe me I wouldn't be doing this, but the fact is there is nobody else right now and that's why I'm doing it!"). Remember when making 2008's terrific Rambo, Sylvester Stallone said he wanted to make an action movie the way it was supposed to be made, and then post it to somebody like Orlando Bloom with a note saying "That's how it's meant to be done"...Read more ›
