It's the action-ensemble of the year, but do the heavy-weights live up to expectation?

Enough to prematurely age youBy RJNeb2 (1016 reviews) from London , 18 Dec 2013Having flogged his Rocky and Rambo franchises to death, Stallone picks another route, that of aging mercenaries, and fills his cast with equally has-been action stars. And while theres some fun in seeing these guys go to it in bone-crunching style, the laboured nature of the screenplay, the tired interplay, the corny plot and the inability of Stallones face to actually move makes this a thoroughly tiresome and loud experience. The type of movie where the leading lady gets waterboarded whilst still wearing heels, its that bad.
Not my Cuppa Tea...By yanbart (135 reviews) , 06 Nov 2013Not my Cuppa Tea. It may be a star studded cast but to me it is just American Trash, Cheesy Rubbish.
Awful filmBy a customer , 23 Sep 2013This is without doubt the worst film I've ever seen! Having read previous reviews, I knew not to expect too much from the plot, but it really was worse than I could have expected. Turned it off after 40 minutes and I'm quite surprised we even lasted that long.
Load of cobblersBy a customer , 15 Sep 2013Every time I looked at my husband while we were watching this film he was half asleep-says it all really. Even the constant gunfire and explosions didn't keep him awake. Pointless, tedious, un exciting, plotless film full of sad, old men running amok. Shame, cos I thought it would be great :(
Terrible...worst film I have ever seen.By a customer , 11 Aug 2013Just awful! With all the big names we thought it would offer a lot more. It was so bad that I didn't even watch it to the end, something I have never done before when watching a film.
