    One hour and 45 minutes of testosterone-laden, macho action laced with gratuitous violence, things blowing up, bad guys getting shredded by bullets or having their bones broken in fight scenes, corny one-liners and he-men good guys rescuing damsels in distress from dirty rotten bad guys. No plot twists to figure out, no character development to clutter up valuable movie time and no hidden meanings to ponder. What you see is what you get.

    I loved it.

    Best line of all-time comes from Stallone during his encounter with Schwarzenegger. I won't spoil it here, but it had the entire theater laughing in their seats.

    I CANNOT FUCKING WAIT TO SEE IT;


    Finally, something that's not totally pussified is comming out of hollywood: I hope this will usher in a resurgence of the era of Rocky, Conan, and Die Hard genre.

    Don't forget to take the grandkids so they can grow up to be wonderful murkins, immune to violence and loving war.

    Eat Pray Love is also playing for those who want to stay in touch with their feminine side.

    Rourke shed a couple of tears and Stallone got teary-eyed. It was alright, but I liked the soundtrack better than the movie.
