Hugely disappointing.

Rabbit Hole

I'm on a roll with these solid films. One of the best this year. Both leads were great in it as well.

It was good. Intense the whole way through, with great performances from everyone really. It got maybe a little horror movie cliche at some points, but it still worked. I'll give it an 8/10.

Been alot of these movies lately. Throwing a bunch of action stars together with the assumption that thats all it takes to make a good action/comedy. Forget directors, producers, or scripts that useless.

I thought that was one of the better parts of the movie actually. If more of the movie had been a tongue-in-cheek send up of 80s action flicks like that scene was, it would have been a better movie IMO.

I guess it just pissed me off because when they put it in the trailer it led me to believe he had a real role in the movie. Instead they just bought his minutes to get people to see it. And tbh I like every Jason Statum movie more than this, just to generic a storyline ever for a semi spoof.
Was like the American with George Cloony. Though it was an action packed movie till i was halfway through and realized it was just a series of long depressing conversations.

It couldn't decide whether it wanted to be an OTT send up/ homage or a balls out action flick and it failed on both counts. No one had anything to do really and it could have been any actors playing many of the parts.

I think it would have been much better if another director got involved and let the actors breath a little. Rambo was 10X better than this.

I agree. Another small part of the movie that I liked was the scene with Mickey Rourke telling the story about the girl on the bridge but it totally didn't fit with the rest of the movie. They could have made it a great send-up of of those kind of movies, or as you said, a balls out 80s action movie to end all 80s action movies. Instead it lacked direction and wound up feeling like Red Heat or some other forgettable movie those guys made between making good movies.
