Stallone's dead eyes are betrayed only occasionally by glimmers of humanity: when he spares a would-be victim who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or when he takes vengeance upon a particularly bad bad guy.
The film could be summed by its product placement for Bulleit Bourbon, treated like a rare luxury when it's actually $20 a bottle at Trader Joe's; director Walter Hill serves this inexpensive, everyday material with a serious flourish.
With a cracked-asphalt voice, a shaved-wildebeest hide, the veined musculature of Swamp Thing and the apparent flexibility of a tree trunk, the aging Sylvester Stallone remains a commanding, amusing and somewhat awe-inspiring screen presence.
Jason Mamoa also impressed me as the villain; all his sins for "Conan the Barbarian" are forgiven and hopefully the climactic axe fight will prove to Stallone that we have a new Expendable cast member the next time around.
Stallone is back with a vengeance. As Jimmy Bobo, New Orleans hitman, he scores his most efficient adrenalin rush since First Blood ... Combines Eastern Promises violence and the buddy banter of 48 HRS.
