A self confessed film nut who is totally convinced that Star Wars is the greatest film ever made.
The original version of this film was an exercise in brilliantly made 80s excess, rampant machismo, unbridled jingoism, unashamed patriotism....plus one robot.
Stallones directors cut is still daft as brush but nonetheless a very very good film, far more serious with different scenes, added scenes, more Drago, and one helluva boxing match finale that 30 odd years on is still bloody fantastic
Well made, good idea for a story, but not a patch on the original, the action was totally boring and uninspired, where was the incredible martial arts that made the first film so brilliant? It even couldn't hold a candle to Reloaded and Revolutions.
Pointless film, what a letdown
