Our Score
Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill (The Warriors, The Long Riders) team up for an endearingly retro action film that puts the veteran Hill back behind the camera for the first time since 2002 prison yarn Undisputed. Harking back to the director's 1980s heyday of hit buddy-cop movies like 48 HRS and Red Heat, it sees Stallone's tattooed hitman reluctantly teaming up with a straight-arrow cop (Sung Kang) to face a mutual foe in Jason Momoa's sadistic killer. There's decent chemistry between the leads but effortlessly stealing every scene is Momoa, whose Rock-type blend of brain and brawn turns him in to a terrific boo-hiss baddie. Hill should be applauded, too, for resisting the temptation to have Kang play a stereotypical martial artist. Of course, the plot is familiar and derivative, but some pithy one-liners and bone-crunching fights more than compensate in a film that's surely bound for guilty pleasure status.


Two hitmen are betrayed by their employer and one of them is killed, leaving the survivor swearing revenge. His search for the assassin leads him to a police detective investigating the murder of his partner, and they join forces when they realise one man is behind both deaths. Action thriller, starring Sylvester Stallone, Sung Kang and Christian Slater.
