DAMN! I've never been much of an action fan but even this has me excited.

Hehehe I can remember reading about this a few months ago while lurking on SA. Been looking forward to it, I might even go to the cinema to watch it (I find the cinema to be really overpriced).

Watched the trailer a few times today

So I saw it tonight at the midnight showing. Friend had a gift card for the theater and was nice enough to share with me. While I was not drunk I do feel manlier and the idea of f***ing a steak and then eating a hooker does sound appealing. Between all the yelling, explosions, bullets, more screaming, and total manliness the pure overwhelming desire to just roundhouse kick someone and scream afterwards is hard to resist. The movie was a bit cheesy but who cares. The humor worked (loved the part with Willis, Stallone, and Ahnold) well and yes there was an abundance of action. More action then you can shake a stick at. The sound effects were simply deafening. They jacked up the sound of every bullet fired and punch thrown. Every time someone gets thrown to the ground it sounds like their back was broken. In other words it was awesome! If what I read online is true the other awesome part is Stallone wanted it to be as real as possible so very little CG was used. In other words those explosions are probably just big effing explosions.

One really awesome part was when Terry Crew's character is mowing down a bunch of guys with his fully automatic shotgun. The sound and his expression made me think of those Old Spice commercials he did. I kept imaging him in them with the shotgun or him with a bottle of Old Spice body wash in the movie heh. If you want to feel manly and macho and watch a movie with non stop ridiculous action this is your ticket.
