Yeah, the movie's pretty bad. Horribly derivative, cheesy, predictable, and weighed down by Stallone's leaden presence. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a great time watching this train wreck. The special effects are cool, the supporting cast is game, and there are even shreds of a story that could have been a good comic book movie. But there is no excuse for Rob Schneider's grating comic relief character.
It's terrible. Stallone chews the scenery, Schneider mucks up as the comic relief, Diane Lane is criminally underused and Armand Assante... jesusfrigginchrist Armand Assante. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that I love this movie... for all the wrong reasons... but still.
