Wesley Snipes. They should spring him from jail for the movie. In fact they could actually film themselves breaking him out of prison and use the footage for the movie.

Ishkur: AverageAmericanGuy: Haven't seen either of the first two. Are they any good?

Great premise, but terrible dialogue and acting

Maybe they were intentionally going for that level of cheese, but the lines were delivered uneven and flat, as if the characters didn't actually understand the very puns and quips they volleyed at each other. Like they were literally reading cue cards.

And having every character express themselves in that same flat, faux-witty banter made the movie feel very affected. There's no personality or differentiation of style when everyone talks the same way. I'm sure the jokes looked funny on paper but something seriously went wrong when they transcribed to screen. Or maybe it was the piss-poor direction.

Good action scenes though.


Sylvester Stallone's acting ability is clearly diminishing as he ages. I still tear up while watching Death Race 2000. It's not due to the actual lines. "Yeah? Well I happen to hold the clam sauce," doesn't evoke emotion in itself. It's Stallone's delivery that gets me.

Statham was off his game, as well. Known best for his comedic timing, he was at the top of his game in Crank. The way he delivers the line, "Don't pop a blood vessel, you little penis" evoked a style not seen since Pryor was at the top of his game. That was missing in The Expendables.

All in all, it was a total disappointment. The script tried to replace the lack of story with explosions and the poor performances from otherwise gifted actors turned what should have been an Oscar favorite into just another "shoot em up".
