Okay. It is what it is. No mature insights like Stallone provided in his last installment of "Rocky," but instead a portrait of a loner -- numb and dumb -- living in isolation in Burma. Burma, as we all know, has the dubious honor of hosting the world's longest-lasting revolution so far...sixty years and counting...

Stallone wrote, directed and starred in this one, so obviously we know who to blame for the ultra-violent scenes, the brutality, and the grisly aftermath of violence with rotting corpses, missing limbs and grieving survivors.

As usual for contemporary movies, he has ramped up the blood, the gore and the blowie uppie stuff. It will titillate the moviegoer looking for same....That is the best I can do.
