The setting of the film is very creative, but I find myself more or less engaged in what is going on rather than actually comprehending what the story is about. Warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel) is looking for this mafia person or something, but honestly I didn't fully follow all the talk. It was quite hard to understand what they were saying, especially Stallone with his trademark raspy voice. All the 'tough guy' talk being so macho and all makes it hard to hear what they're saying. I just followed the action.
Props to Stallone and Schwarzenegger for making an action film at their age. It's probably time to give it up though. I'm getting kind of tired of watching guys fighting and shooting at each other for no apparent reason. Plus, this is such a hyper-masculine movie. I counted two women in this film. Two. Who never talk to each other and had only a few minutes of screen time. Fantastic.
Well one thing that I did appreciate, was that they didn't swear as much as I would've expected. Usually with these hyper-masculine films, they would have the f-word in every sentence. I appreciate that this did not. The acting was pretty good too I guess. They got into their characters well.
