Stallone's attempt to bring macho action heroes back into the light. (http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/movie-talk-sylvester-stallone-blames-batman.html)

Trailer. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6RU5y2fU6s)

Looks like a real throwback to macho alright, although I have to say the trailer sounds and looks incredibly cheesy, hopefully it's just advertising at work.

The notable cast include:
Sylvester Stallone, also director and screen writer.
Jason Statham
Jet Li
Dolph Lundgren
Terry Crews
Randy Couture
Steve Austin
Mickey Rourke
Bruce Willis
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Eric Roberts
Charisma Carpenter

Cheesy? Looks like a fun action/adventure movie!

It looks fun, but I sort of expected more than what the trailer offered. I'd been hearing about it for a while and I don't know what I expected, but maybe something a bit more over-the-top? More ridiculously action-packed and "throwback"? Same time though, maybe they're exhibiting rare restraint and not spilling all of their best bits in the trailer. Nonetheless, still looks like it might be the best of the three "betrayed mercenary / military team saves the day and gets some payback" movies released this summer (first The Losers, then A-Team, now this).

It's a phenomenal cast. There hasn't been this much steroids in a single lineup since Lyle Alzedo played for the Raiders.

I just saw Rocky again...it's amazing how much younger he looks in it compared to nowadays.
