This was not one of Stallone's best movies which is probably why it never made it to the theaters. It was a combination drama and comedy but it didn't quite cut it. This is an older movie. Since I collect Stallone movies and the price was right, I bought it. I would only recommend buying it at a low price.
This action film hangs on an interesting reversal, taking the crazed-killer-in-the-woods theme from Friday the 13th and turning it inside out-- the psychopath is now our hero, a maladjusted ex-Green Beret played by Sylvester Stallone.
Perhaps we're pawns in an elaborate homage to excess and macho stupidity. It's purposefully - even wilfully - bad. Given that I can't prove that Simon West isn't actually that kind of wheels-within-wheels genius, he earns benefit of my doubt.
For those who thought you couldn't possibly gather more action stars under one banner, Mr. Stallone and company have proved you wrong and again with tongue in cheek humor often aimed at themselves, in grand fashion. Plot-wise, gadget-wise and of course explosion-wise, this yarn has set some new levels. For pure entertainment this is a must watch!
the first movie was great and i did not think the sequel would be better ( it was incredible) i couldnt have asked for a better action movie but here it is. it has more characters in it then the first one which makes it even more incredible and yes they all take part in the action.
It is Stallone versus the world in this crime flick. Stallone plays a sheriff trying to uphold the law as best he can in his small community. He thinks all his fellow cops are his friends, but little by little, he realizes there is something more than meets the eye. This is a movie that seems like it is going nowhere, yet it does not get boring, and it is worth watching just to see the ending.
I have really enjoyed this DVD since picking it up. True, the movies are not Stallone's best known works, but I like Sylvester Stallone, so they're valuable to me. I particularly like Avenging Angelo and it ranks up there with my favorite movies of all time. Eye See You is a good thriller that had me guessing until the end. Stallone gives a very good, emotional performance in this movie. He plays a FBI agent but he's not the tough guy throughout, like he is in other movies of a similar nature. This movie showed his more emotional side, like in Cop Land (although he isn't a push over type character in this movie). I haven't watched Shade yet, but I'm expecting it to be good. I love Stallone and Gabriel Byrne, so I'm expecting it to be fairly well executed with good acting. Jamie Foxx and Stuart Townsend are also in the movie. Overall, a nice collection of Stallone's lesser known films, and like I said, maybe not his most famous movies but still good ones with good story lines.
I remember when I first saw this movie, fantastic!. I have the DVD, now I have all 4 Rambo First Blood Movies In Blue-Ray. A great story line about an average guy getting a raw deal in life. Rambo 4 was also excellent, tying up all the loose ends, so to speak, as John Rambo finally geos home.
