REVENGE NEVER GETS OLD.
After walking into a trap, New Orleans hit man James Bonomo (Sylvester Stallone) reluctantly teams up with a Washington, D.C. cop (Sung Kang) who’s getting no help from the local authorities; both men are after the same people. I suppose Stallone was attracted to the idea of playing a character who’s not exactly a good guy; he does however have a code of honor in this formulaic action movie. It’s obvious that Walter Hill wants it to be really rough, and it is all the way through. Still, there’s some humor between the two antagonistic leads, with Stallone a lot more charismatic than Kang.
