I want the same goddamn action you gave us, in the opening ten minutes of the film, to last throughout.

What I don't want, is a script that was written by a twelve year-old, being expanded on by a bunch of sentimental old men. This film had one fucking job, and that was to entertain me in all of it's 80's "action movie" glory, and what I got was a confused narrative, that asks me to care about what I'm seeing. Did John Matrix ask that? I didn't fucking think so. This franchise is just WAY too high on itself.

Look, all we want, are some 80's era badasses, kicking the ever living shit out of bad guys. That's it. I don't care about the depth of the bad guy's greed. Just show him being greedy, and kill him. That's all I ask.

Disappoited again.


Five of those points are for the opening scene alone. The rest is a bunch of garbage.
I see your points.
Thankfully, I missed it in theater. Maybe a re-run on Blu-ray, we will see.

You seem a pretty reasonable guy with this statement...
