Years from now people will look back at this slapstick and say, man, what a waste. Technically speaking, it’s the biggest assembly of action stars to ever appear in a movie. Go ahead and look over the others, even the first two movies, they don’t have the fire power on display here. This cast is unprecedented. And given their age and the fact that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, it’ll never happen again. ...

I liken Jason Statham to a modern day Charles Bronson, coming off with a solid ruggedness in his movies despite not being particularly noteworthy in the acting department. For a long while Bronson had a string of low key violent action thrillers, where one differed little from the next. Simple plots where a man just wanted the quiet life, but there was always some pissant who just couldn’t leave well enough alone. Statham’s resume is similar and ...

When I first heard that they were making a movie titled “Meg” I thought it was one of those pussy romantic comedies which women make, force & blackmail their men to watch all in the name of spending “Quality Time” together. All the while not realizing that the man they’re with is losing testosterone by every single individual second they’re forced to watch that cinematic garbage. But when I found out “The Meg” was a movie starring Jason Statham versus a ...

I remember that phase Sylvester Stallone went through about ten years ago. For so long he’d been maligned by the hip mainstream and threw away his inhibitions and said; ‘Fuck it, I’m going to do my own thing and have fun with my old style stuff’, starting with the ultra violent Rambo, but then really kicking off a party by announcing himself and Jason Statham in a new movie. That sounded great, then he announced Lundgren, then Willis, ...

How quaint it is to look back at the initial theatrical release of The Expendables 2 almost five years ago in the late summer of 2012, after all the PG-13 rumours and behind-the-scenes gossip. Many of us hoped and expected an effortless home run after the rough-around-the-edges original movie. To its credit, this follow-up succeeded about as well as could be reasonably expected, pulling in over $300 million at the global box office (against its reported $100M production budget) and ...
