Did You Know?
There were plans to do a sequel which never materialized.
When Cobra blasts the supermarket psycho with his .45, no shell casings are ejected from the chamber.
You're such a liar.
Watch your mouth. You're in public!
SYNOPSIS: It made me want to kick my own *ss.
YOU CAN'T TELL ME the first time you saw Stallone do a complete 180 in
that pimped out ride, hang that sweet lookin' gun out of the window,
and knock off a few caps at the bad guy as he drove in REVERSE (!!)
that you didn't get a little tingly in your gut in a good way.
People… I think we need to have a Come-To-Jesus about this movie. I
can't believe I actually saw such low approval stats from all age
brackets. Lemme just holler and the children of the '80s: what the hell
are you thinking? Stallone and Schwartzenegger were bigger than life
back then, and there's no love…. Now there's nothing but CGI, bigger
explosions, crazier guns, fake boobies, more authentic-looking aliens,
all the things I like in movies — wait a second.
You know, I realize Stallone will never win Best Actor… I realize
Stallone will never die, probably, he's always in such damn good
shape… and I also realize that his face will never straighten up so
he can talk correctly, but there's one thing I do know… I give this
movie a 10, and I hope it feels like the giant peanut butter sandwich
you just ate without a glass of milk anywhere in sight!
I need a glass of rootbeer… BARTENDER!
