For action? Yes.. I can recommend it. For storyline? I don't think so. I had fun with the cameo of Bruce Willis. I pretty don't much like Jet Li's role here. I think there is something lacking from the storyline or some of their dialogues. Like it could use some revamp and make it a little bit cool. But, props for Stallone for being in the scene even though he is already 64. ;) The movie could have been better, though... if they placed a little depth. But, well if you just want testosterone filled movie.... watch this. and reminisce over the come back of fave popular cast brought into one film.
